Campus Housing: The Campus Housing is great!

Athletics: Sports here is absolutely fantastic. Students take pride in schools athletics and the athletes are humble about it.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: From what I hear, you can't live off campus unless you're a certain age or some other reason I had forgotten. Most students don't reach the age requirement to live off campus.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: It depends on the type of person or place where the party takes place. Eventually, you'll find something to do.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: It's off-campus business so it is what it is.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: They're very strict when it comes to campus safety and rules but its not a bad thing.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: It's a very expensive school but receiving financial aid here helps towards the tuition. A little help doesn't hurt.

1 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: OWU is a residential campus. Off-campus housing is basically nonexistent unless you live really close to the school. If you have a special issue or reason to get off campus housing, it is really hard to get it approved.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are various places to eat off campus whether it's a local restaurant, subway, or a café down the street. Someone is basically always open, but some places close early. We get plenty of food points to use off campus as well.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Clancy's is sketchy at times, but it is where everyone goes. Sometimes bands come in that are pretty good and it can be a good time. Other than that, there's nothing in Delaware and you have to go to another city to find somewhere else good to party at.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: Smoking isn't supposed to occur closer than 20 feet of a building, but that is often broken, even by adults employed at the University. People are loud at night, but that's college. What do you expect. It's not too loud that you cannot get work done though. Drugs and alcohol are not permitted and punishment will be given if you're caught underage or doing illegal things. Visitation restrictions are nonexistent unless it is with a prospective student. Public safety is not afraid to give tickets if you're parked in the wrong place.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The financial aid staff helps out if you go to them with questions. Even though the school is as expensive as all get out, the scholarship money is a larger amount that makes up for it in the end making this school not too much more expensive than other private schools.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: People complain about college food and it takes your body about a week to get used to eating at Smith, but it's actually pretty good. Even if the main dishes are sub par that day, I can always find something good to eat, unlike at Hamwil. Hamwil is great for breakfast though. The small food/drink kiosks around campus are extremely helpful on your busy days or if you just want a snack. Food plans have variability for students needs.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Some of the dorms have communal bathrooms, which are not very clean. Some buildings do not have A/C, but we can do without that. It's not that hot in Ohio for very long during the school year. The better housing is more expensive and off campus living is nonexistent.

Administration: for the most part things are not strict. students routinely destroy things which is inconvenient however most of the leniency is fine and makes life easier.

Scholarships: the financial aid people continue to meet me and help me in every way they can. the school accepts aid repeals and gives out book cards and are just very helpful in trying to making the education possible.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The variety is lack and sometimes they try to make fancy food that doesnt turn out well. but we arent here to eat great food so it is enough. as far as options for quick food on the academic side of campus they are great

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: OWU is considered a residential campus. Students must live on campus unless they live in Delaware, County or apply to one of the 5 exemptions. The process of trying to get off campus is long and you wait a long period of time even though you will probably be denied.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Many different options to choose from

3 College Freshman

Administration: Do what is right and you wont get in trouble. Public Safety and DPD just do their job, but can sometimes take things too far.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: It has gradually gotten worse each year with tuition increases and decrease in admissions.

Party Scene: sometimes it can be fun and sometimes it can be a little to much. It depends on where you go.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Food can be really good one day and not too good on other days. It ultimately depends on where you go and what type of food you want.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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."
