As the 15th largest city in the nation and the fastest growing in the Midwest, Columbus offers the best of everything: a thriving metropolitan area, a dynamic arts and culture scene, beautiful parks for hiking, cycling, fishing and boating, and countless renowned restaurants and top-notch shopping to experience. Sports fans can enjoy the excitement of Columbus’ major and minor teams in hockey, soccer and baseball — Columbus Blue Jackets, Crew and Clippers — as well as National Championship college teams, most recently the 2015 Ohio State Buckeyes’ Football team.
Columbus is also home to many large corporations, a great number of small and mid-sized businesses, government offices and nonprofit organizations, including JPMorgan Chase & Co., Nationwide Mutual Insurance Company, Honda of America Mfg., Inc., L Brands, Huntington Bancshares Incorporated, Cardinal Health, and American Electric Power.
Education takes a prominent role in the capital city as well. The Ohio State University is 16th among the nation’s best public universities. Other outstanding area colleges and universities include Capital University, Otterbein University, Denison University, Ohio Wesleyan University, Kenyon University, Ohio Dominican University, and the Columbus College of Art & Design.
