The OWU Connection is . . .

microbiologyGuided. With our 10:1 student-to-faculty ratio, you work closely with professors and advisors who can help you find your passion and build a program to make it a career.

Personalized. Want to major in Zoology and Creative Writing? You can do that. Add a travel class to the Galapagos Islands to walk in the footsteps of Darwin. And how about a semester internship with a publisher in New York City? We work with you to create a unique experience that prepares you for your next step and for a lifetime of learning.

Guaranteed. Every OWU student participates in The OWU Connection, with opportunities to travel, conduct research, complete an internship, and take your learning into the real world.

Proven. The OWU Connection helps you develop the knowledge, skills, and experience that employers and grad schools value most: the ability to think critically, analyze complex problems, work in diverse teams, and communicate effectively. Over and over, OWU graduates link their jobs or grad school placements directly to their OWU Connection experience.

You will be prepared to face complex challenges in real-world settings. You will be ready to make a difference.
