4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Class sizes tend to be small;therefore, it is easy to ask questions and get help from the professors without having to compete with a numerous other amount of students. The amount and quality of the courses are great, as well as the professor who teach them. Every professor has a Phd and are very knowledgeable, extremely helpful even after class is over, and very well rounded teachers.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are internships at our school for the year following their graduating. In addition, there are many jobs students can get while on campus. Our school has a career services that helps students prepare for jobs after graduation, resumes, practice for job interviews, and more. The career services on campus are extremely helpful.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: I do not participate in the party scenes at school; therefore, I do not know much information about it. I know that there are sometimes school approved parties at fraternity houses. They usually have a theme and are a safe way for students to have fun and positive experiences at school

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Throughout campus there are quite a few emergency poles that students can access. In addition, we have campus safety that is always helpful. I feel very safe while on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: A little over 40% of our campus is part of Greek life. I joined a sorority myself. Greek housing is only available for the fraternities. Therefore, females live in normal student housing with greek or non-greek roomates; that is what I like a lot about the greek system at the school. This then doesn't create a separation between greek and non-greek students on campus.

3 College Junior

Diversity: The diversity is a blessing and an issue. Because of all the diversity, there are a lot of clubs and that causes students to be in multiple clubs. This causes the students to be overworked and constantly doing something.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: I am not really sure. I have never been to the bars or clubs. All of my knowledge is second hand. I have heard both positive and negative stories.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Financial situations are a constant battle with any college. My experience has been no different.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: The campus has the majority of its housing in suite-styled rooms. There is a fair amount of space and its nice being able to have a community in and out of the room. The campus is small, so all classes are pretty close. The only issue is that the campus is shaped like an hour glass, so once you are on one side, you typically stay there as long as possible.

4 College Junior

Athletics: We have a new aquatic center that is open to both athletes and non. Our other athletic buildings are older on the outside and newer on the inside. They are currently building a new athletic gym of some sort that should be state of the art.

5 College Junior

Majors: I am a double major and I love both programs! One of them is in the process of rebuilding and the professors are young, but they are both extremely intelligent and have a lot to offer. The other program is pretty solid and expanding which is very exciting.

College Junior

Majors: I have not had any experience with an internship. However, they do offer them and I have been told they are good internships.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There is little to no off-campus housing available. In order to live off-campus, you must either have a medical reason or a permanent address in the area. That basically means you must live there all year which is not easy to do, especially if you do not have a car.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus. The local police make a good team with our campus officers. The health center can be difficult, but all of the workers are very nice.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are several local places that accept our campus card. Each semester we are given 100 off campus food points and some of the local places will accept those. Its really nice! There is a variety from pizza, to burgers, to coffee, to Mexican! There is also a local farmers market that accepts our points.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: The officers are all very open and friendly. The biggest rule I have heard from them is "Don't be stupid." Basically, if you are gonna drink underage, don't abuse it. If you are gonna have a party, don't have it during test weeks. If you are drunk, don't run from a police officer.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life is completely optional. And the people who are apart of it are incredible people, but those who are not are equally awesome! While the typical chapters exist, academic greek life is big on campus as well.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: The quality could be increased as well as the flavors. I know that they are required to follow a certain recipe, but I would like to taste more flavors in the meals. Food on campus is always overpriced. But that is true about any college I know, so Ohio Wesleyan is no exception. I like that they have started to accept some of the students suggestions. It shows that they care and are attempting to change. It would also be nice to get healthier options in the student convenience store.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: The school has a great notification system. When something happens anywhere near campus a public alert goes out notifying everyone of the danger and what precautions they may need to take. It's quite informative.

4 College Junior

Diversity: OWU prides itself on having a very diverse student population and the students pride themselves on being accepting of everyone.

College Sophomore

Majors: I recently decided to change what I'm studying.

College Sophomore

Majors: Unless you're a music major there isn't really a process of getting into a program. I'm not a music major obviously. Otherwise there's the challenge of getting into a class, or a research program, but it's the same level of difficulty you'd find anywhere else.

Tips for admission: Talk to your admissions counselor, visit the school, stay updated on deadlines, and try to get scholarships, ask about them, and petition for money if necessary, we have it.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: There isn't peer pressure to do anything, whether you do or don't people support that decision. You can only get yourself in trouble if you're underage and drink, or use illegal substances at all; people aren't narks here. Plus it's not visible, even if you're looking for it. Usage, well people use anywhere you'd go, even if the students claim that no one does, someone does.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: I've never been to a place where there are so many attractive people, that are of all different body shapes, personalities, and backgrounds. Plus everyone is super friendly, and there's no need to impress anyone.

Athletics: Lots of people play a sport whether it's club or varsity. It's fun, not really any pressure.

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."
