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.

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.

Guys & Girls: Ohio Wesleyan may not have the hottest girls or the biggest guys, but the personalities here are great!! Every student is so friendly and unique. There are very few judgmental people and almost everyone and their beliefs are welcomed. I feel the students at OWU act very mature compared to the students at other universities.

Guys & Girls: There are a lot of really nice and very attractive guys and girls on campus. But of course it is a small campus and you will bump into that ex or hook up at lunch, dinner, in your class, in the dorms, and walking down the Jay.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Ohio Wesleyan students love to interact and be social with each other. There is constant intermingling between girls and guys that is only encouraged by the fact that there are no strict rules or visiting hours regulating the interaction. The male-to-female ratio constantly stays near the 50/50 mark, offering a good blend of guys and girls in every social situation. From the outside, one might be tempted to believe there is a big sex separation because of the all-male fraternities and the all-female hall, but the fact is that both of these areas are always mixed with a variety of people of both genders. This constant blend often results in casual hookups at parties, which is the predominant way the social scene works. Long-term relationships do occur, as well, but they are less common between the students.

Everyone seems to fit in with some group on campus. There are so many people from such diverse backgrounds that students will surely meet people they probably would have never gotten to know if it weren't for Ohio Wesleyan bringing them together. The best way to meet people is just by hanging out in the different residence halls, in classes, and in the Hamilton-Williams Campus Center. Most students leave their doors open and welcome people just popping in whenever they want, and this is a great way to meet new people. The friends you make while at Ohio Wesleyan could become some of the greatest friends in your life, and some have even met their future spouse while at OWU.

Social Scene
It seems that everyone knows everyone else, which can be both a positive and a negative aspect of Ohio Wesleyan. The social scene can be as good as you make it. There are many different types of people, and it is not hard to find someone that you might like to get to know a bit more than the rest of your friends. Gossip travels fast, though, and it is next to impossible to avoid someone on such a small campus.
Hookups or Relationships?
There seems to be few serious relationships, as most students simply lack the time. Hookups with friends are much more common at dance parties and room parties. That isn't to say that there aren't relationships, because some students are looking for more than just random hookups, and that option is available. Others would rather be open to experiencing many different types of people rather than just tying themselves down right away.
Dress Code
The dress code all depends on where you are looking. There are many students that won't do much more than throw on sweatpants and a sweatshirt on their way to class, just wearing what is comfortable. Then there are students who follow the new fashion trends, and Lacoste, Banana Republic, J.Crew, and Ralph Lauren are quite common as daily wear among many students. Many Ohio Wesleyan students do care about their appearance and will spend time and money to look good.
