4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The community is very small; everyone knows each other. It's a support group of caffeine-induced, struggling-to-be geniuses being fed mediocre food but being taught by the most caring, personable professors around. I never thought I could enjoy my education this much.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Public safety is very good, we always get email alerts when something is going on that it even slightly unsafe.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have liked all of the professors I have had so far and they are very helpful and reasonable. There are a lot of different interesting classes to take, but it is sometimes hard to create your schedule since they all seem to be offered at the same time.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The school shows that it tries to help students after graduation, as there are many career/job fairs on campus.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I like my dorm room pretty well because it is the honors dorm and there are several rooms which makes it feel pretty spacious. I have heard bad things about some of the dorm buildings, however, as they are commonly referred to as "trash." I also do not like how it's difficult to get a single room.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: It is not good to be in a sorority because you're not allowed to live in the houses. I am not involved with Greek life, but it seems like it is a big hassle that people are always complaining about. The sororities do not do very much and it doesn't seem like very much fun here.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: It is a small school, and the athletics are not that great simply because there is not a large pool of people to choose from. The school is more geared toward academics than athletics, but athletics are still given recognition. A new fitness center was opened this year for both athletes and non-athletes that is very nice. A lot of people participate in athletics, but it seems that it is more just for fun.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have not had a very good experience at my school so far because it is not very good for my major. I can't take as many classes in my major as I feel I need, and the classes that are available are not as intensive as I would like to be and I don't feel like I'm learning as much as I should. The program is not as rigorous as it is at other schools, and I fear that after I graduate I will not be as good as other people in my field. I have also had some problems sleeping with my roommates and haven't made very many good friends. The professors, however, have been very kind and helpful. All of the professors I've had have been very personable and approachable, and I feel that I have learned a lot from them. The school and the students are very friendly and welcoming, and the fact that it's a small school makes it easier to get to know people.

Overall Experience: I would choose OWU over again because it has given me so many opportunities already, and I am only a second semester student. I am already spending my second semester abroad in Tanzania, conducting research and studying the Swahili language.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I only have minimal issues with the campus and university. Beyond that, it's everything I dreamed of and more, and I'd do anything to make sure I get to stay here all four years.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: 99% of students either get into grad school or get employed in their fields - OWU is the best place for career prospects if you can just get a degree.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: It's a college in America, but it knows that and tries to be better for it

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The buildings could be better maintained but are otherwise acceptable

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I don't follow Greek life closely, though my good friends are Greek and give me an idea of it

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: OWU has been everything I wanted a more. The people are everything I could've asked for in a friend, the environs are perfect with everything I could need in walking distance, the professors are passionate and ingenious, and the university makes every effort to work with its budget as well as possible. The only complaint I have is that the campus itself needs better maintenance and tending.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I have not had too many experiences with health and safety here, but when I injured my thumb everyone acted quickly and were truly helpful in making sure I got to the health center and that I would be comfortable after my visit.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: For the most part I feel like the professors are genuinely interested in me and teaching me.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Based on statistics the outlook is not good. The staff and professors seem to genuinely care about helping students find jobs and or get into grad school

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It has the typical downsides of most college housing. There are a decent amount of options, but the biggest downside is that you have to live on campus all four years

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: The fraternities are mostly know for the drugs, but there are a few very welcoming and accepting frats. The sororities are more half and half, there is the stereotypical societies and there are some that's are more inclusive and accepting.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Many students are very involved in athletic. They also encourage fellow students to join the teams, especially club and intermural Teams.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have found so many oppertunities here. The exploration is limitless and encouraged here. I feel like everyone here genuinely wants to see me succeed.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: People love sports here and honestly most of the students support games at OWU.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love this school they are very helpfull and there are so many opportunities for basically anything that you want to do.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Both Delaware Police and Campus Public Safety patrol and are readily available to help. There are blue buttons across campus.

There are OWU alerts (text, call, email) in case anything happens near or on campus to keep students aware, but they are not often needed. I have not heard of many problems on campus. It is a very safe area, and fellow students are really good at helping with anything, even the tiny things like dropping something. It is a very friendly and supportful campus.

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."
