Campus Housing: The school itself is great, but personally i do not find a personal connection at all. I am a music major and all my GE classes are 15 minutes away from the music building. I also have to have 10 mins to the music building if I want to practice. Its not very fun..

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: For a Division 3 school they're brilliant

2 College Freshman

Nightlife: The parties are not enjoyable because it typically involves the same group of drunk kids. Once the parties fizzle out, the crowd moves to the local bar, Clancey's where students under the age of 21 have to pay to get into a bar where they can not drink. I feel the dull night life is the reason why many students drink an excessive amount and partake in drug activity.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

Ohio Wesleyan students truly appreciate the opportunities that are given to them at this small liberal arts school in Delaware. There is something special about OWU that the rankings seem to overlook, and only the students experiencing it know what this is. An OWU student is given the advantage of being personally taught by a group of one of the greatest faculty in America, a group that is not concerned with research, but with instilling knowledge in the best way possible. In addition, the endless leadership opportunities on campus give OWU students another chance for growth and development that will help them in their future endeavors. The students appreciate an Ohio Wesleyan education because it focuses on every aspect of character and knowledge, and not just what is taught in the classroom. OWU students do not just learn about facts and equations; they learn how to think, and that is what sets them apart.

Many students do question their decision to attend OWU in their first semester or first year there, and some will end up transferring before they immerse themselves in all of the opportunities afforded to them by the University. The students that do attend for four years and are not afraid to take risks and experience everything begin to realize that they are being given the chance to receive an education on par with any college student in the world. They realize that with the tools acquired at OWU, they can go out and truly be anything. It is with this realization that the student can say, "I am OWU."
