Hilary Quinn '19
Financial Analyst, Morgan Stanley, New York CityPathway to a Career
Guided. With our 11:1 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.
Universal. Every OWU student participates in The OWU Connection. You have opportunities to travel, conduct research, complete an internship, and take your learning into the real world.
Purposeful. 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. Every year, OWU graduates connect their jobs or grad school placements directly to their OWU Connection experiences.
You will be prepared to face complex challenges in real-world settings. You will be ready to make a difference.
You will integrate knowledge across disciplines. Work closely with your professors to explore the connections that link the arts, sciences, and humanities in solving real-world challenges. OWU offers 70 majors, and about a third of OWU students graduate with multiple majors. You also can work with faculty mentors to explore research projects in one discipline or across diverse majors.
You will build a diverse and global perspective. Get your passport ready. You will have many opportunities to expand your classroom learning by immersing yourself in another culture. And on campus, you'll be living in a community that celebrates diversity and is enriched by students from around the world.
You will make the world a better, more caring place. Service has always been an OWU tradition and one of our highest values. Every year, OWU students devote thousands of hours to serving others. You might promote healthy cooking in our community, help repair homes damaged by hurricanes, or volunteer in urban schools. You will connect learning and purpose.
You will practice the application of knowledge. Every OWU student is guaranteed a variety of opportunities to put theory into practice - to take what you've learned in the classroom and put it to work in real-world settings. You can take on an internship. Or work with a professor to create a unique project - and get OWU funding to help carry it out.
