Dublin Villager

Ohio Dominican sharing Shamrock Court site with Columbus State

By

Ohio Dominican University moved its Dublin location to 6190 Shamrock Court this month.

The university will offer its continuing education program for adults while sharing a location with Columbus State Community College.

"We've been serving Dublin for a number of years now and were located on Blazer Parkway for a number of years and then the opportunity presented itself to move to the Shamrock Court location with Columbus State and we thought it would be a good fit and easily accessible," said Tom Brockman, manager of media relations and university communications. "We thought this would present a good option for working professionals in Dublin and Hilliard and all northwest Columbus suburbs."

Ohio Dominican has offered evening classes for professionals looking to continue their education since 2003.

The school has issued 921 degrees to students from the Dublin campus.

The new location Ohio Dominican University will share with Columbus State Community College will give students more offerings while offering the amenities students are used to, Brockman said.

"This is unique, at least for us," he said. "This is the only location where we're on the same campus.

"We have different partnerships with Columbus State and their students.

"Once they get an associate's degree our transfer counselors work with them to help achieve their goal."

"ODU's new home in Dublin is the ideal location to meet the growing demand for a quality continuing education program," Karen Gray, executive director of ODU's Adult & Continuing Education program, said in a news release from the school. "This particular location also offers Columbus State's Dublin students the advantage of pursuing their bachelor's degree at the same location as their associate degree."

Degree offerings in the Adult and Continuing Education program at the Dublin location include associate of science in business administration, bachelor of science in business administration and master of business administration.

"All courses are offered in the evening ... for working professionals located in Dublin," Brockman said.

"Whether they live there or work there, we're trying to make a convenient opportunity to earn degrees."
