Campus life is wonderful! The facilities are very good. OWU makes an effort to renovate buildings as they wear down over time, while still keeping the traditional-looking architecture and natural beauty. However, it does lose some points for lacking modern elements like elevators in some of the larger buildings on campus, such as University Hall. The student center (affectionately known as Hamwil) is a great place to hang out during lunch and in between classes, with several wide-screen TVs, several couches, and many different dining options!

Great Opportunities – At OWU I have really had the chance to explore things I never thought I would - Greek life (which defies all the stereotypes), leadership, social justice, music, everything! There's really something for everyone, and I can't think of a single time I've been bored. Academics are generally very good and challenging (depending on the department), and the professors truly care and go out of their way to help. It's a close-knit but diverse and accepting community where I feel completely at home.

Public Safety – The campus police are pretty strict when it comes to drinking and drug-use. It is understandable when it comes to drugs, they have a policy where if they even suspect pot, they will call in the local police department and students can be kicked out depending on the type of drug. As far as drinking, they are a bit more lenient on that, however if you are caught they will make sure that you go through a "trial" of sorts. Luckily, they rarely bust people unless an RA catches you. Just be smart!
