5 College Freshman

4 College Freshman

Athletics: great facilities, and easy to get to. good hours that you can go and work out or play a sport

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I want to live off campus but the rules behind it are hard to get around. I also like living on campus so i'm bias

3 College Freshman

Administration: There really isn't anything they ban or forbid that i can't see the reasoning behind.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: It would be better if we had a few more options, but the options we do have are not bad at all either. Just sometimes it would be nice to have a bit more variety or where I would like to go to eat. I would say the best places to check out though, would be the Hamburger Inn, and J. Gumbos. they are both great places that aren't that expensive

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: I feel we have a diverse type of personalities on campus. I've encountered several different types of looks. Most students I would say lean towards athletic wear though. Most people are involved in athletics or Greek life. Most are very social able. After 4 years here one can know almost everyone on campus. I personally have many close relationships. on this campus. And most other students try to focus on the same be it friends or a girlfriend/boyfriend.

Greek Life: Greek life is a very big part of campus. The Greek alumni usually donate a lot to the school. Also the Greek community has a big impact of community service and social life on campus. Even if someone is not involved in Greek life they still have some type of connection. Especially throughout the weekend. Most of the houses are relatively nice for a small campus like ours. Most of the students are viewed as normal unless they're a Phi Delt. other than that, there's no big difference.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I'm pretty sure about one-third of our college campus is involved in sports, so you could agree that it is a very big deal on our campus. We have pretty solid close-knit teams that have each others backs. Depending on the game or just the sport, there is a big fan base and lots of school spirit involved, especially with basketball season in my opinion. I think we have amazing athletic facilities. We had an amazing weight room and are in the middle of getting a brand new one as well as have a brand new turf field installed this past summer. We also have amazing trainers as well as an amazing training room. Lastly our coaches get very involved with the athletes. They make sure they are doing well in classes, if not try to help them get an action plan together on how they're going to get their performance and grades up for the particular class etc.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: We have great facilities for athletics as well as the sciences. Also, all of the student resource centers (in the library, writing center, etc) are very accommodating and help students out greatly when they need it. Many students are involved in Greek life, and I think its one of the best parts of our campus, people just get together and have a great time in each others companies.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The academics are amazing here. Most of the professors I have had are geared toward helping us succeed and actually getting to know the students and help them out in any way possible. As opposed to just lecturing and then leaving you on your own. They take time and really help you to understand the things they are trying to teach you. I also feel that it had a very easy registration process. Even if you can't get into a class due to limited seating, most teachers I've encountered are very lenient and will let the extra people into their class even though it means more work for them. The workload I would say sometimes can be a bit much. But depending on the class, the workload is usually a quality way to help the students to learn the topic completely and fully. We are also provided with several options to help us with studying, papers, or anything we may need for the class in question

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: It's okay, it normally gets the job done. On some days it is amazing and others, its just okay. But Hamwill usually always has an amazing and tasty selection to choose from. The food is always diverse giving students tons of options to choose from. The fact we can use off-campus points is also a very good thing as well. It would be great if we had more than 100 to use but other than that I have no complaints.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus. I or any friends or anyone I know for that matter has not been in any type of danger since I've been going to school here. Public safety does a nice job and there's not that much hostility or crime or bad behavior that even goes on on our campus. I feel safe doing anything on campus, be that walking to my dorm at 2 in the morning from the library, or anything of that nature.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The off-campus housing is okay, but its kind of hard to make it happen. According to school rules, we can't do that so students must actually move to Delaware if they wish to get a off-campus house. Other then that, they are close, cheap and descent housing, just a real hassle to make it happen.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I enjoy my program very much, the teachers in my department are very supportive and active with the students. Since I am a Health and Human Kinetics major, most of my classes revolve around fitness. So most of my teachers are very hands on and active with the students rather then sitting the whole time, we do a lot of hands on activities that help us to know better what exactly we are doing and I think it is amazing. We are also getting a brand new top of the line facility for our department and I can not wait for that.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I love the school but really wish i could get a little more financial aid

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."
