Ohio Wesleyan is always on the move. We're adding academic programs, internship and travel opportunities, sports teams, clubs, and recreation activities for new students with new needs and interests.
Dig into new majors, new sports, new opportunities
In 2016, OWU added a business administration major, and it's now one of the most popular at the university. Now, in 2017 and 2018, OWU is planning so much more.
OWU has launched eight new majors in rapidly growing fields like data analytics, communication, environmental science, film studies, Middle Eastern studies, and nutrition; and in fulfilling areas such as social justice and special education. Top students can also apply for new scholar programs in accounting and global studies.
For fall of 2018, OWU will be fielding two new varsity sports teams: men’s wrestling and women’s rowing. And we’ll be cheering a brand new marching band! You can be a member of one of these historic groups.
All of OWU's new majors combine focused study with expert faculty, real-world internship and research opportunities, and the expansive understanding that comes from studying the liberal arts.
In 2018, we will field OWU's 24th and 25th varsity athletic teams: women's rowing and men's wrestling. The athletes in these new sports will join a long and distinguished tradition of success in competition, in the classroom, and in life after college.
Coaches for the new teams will be named in the summer of 2017, and teams will begin play as club sports in the 2017-18 academic year.
New Scholar & Intern Opportunities
OWU's Economics Management Fellows Program has long provided scholarships, mentoring, and travel opportunities for students. For 2017 OWU is creating more programs for top students through the Accounting Fellows Program and the Global Scholars Program.
OWU's New York Arts internship program is celebrating its 50th anniversary by offering beautiful new living space for students in Midtown Manhattan.
New Clubs & Activities
OWU is now recruiting students to join a new marching band program, set to begin in the fall of 2018. The marching band and pep/spirit band will perform at sporting events and other activities on campus and in the community.
OWU offers students a wide range of clubs, social and cultural activities, and fitness opportunities. And students are welcome to start new clubs to match their own interests.
Since 2016, OWU has built three new Small Living Unit duplexes (SLUplexes) on the west end of the JAYwalk, each housing two SLUs and a total of 24 students.
In August 2017, OWU opened a brand new Honors House on Oak Hill Avenue. The three new SLUplexes and the Honors House were all funded completely by gifts from OWU's generous donors.
