To really get a sense of Oh-Wooo, you're invited to walk through an utterly beautiful campus where history drips from iconic, century-old academic halls - and students work in modern classrooms and labs, and play in a new fitness center and outstanding athletic facilities.
Schedule a visit to Ohio Wesleyan today. OWU’s 200-acre campus includes 10 sites on the National Register of Historical Places, including University Hall with its iconic tower, Elliott Hall dating from 1833, Edwards Gym with its stunning skylight ceiling, and beautiful Stuyvesant, a classic, fully renovated residence hall. And you can meet professors and staff who will really get to know you.
Visit Delaware, a quaint and thriving small town with more than 20 restaurants within walking distance of campus, the Strand movie theater (oldest, longest-running theater in Ohio), community celebrations on First Fridays, a bustling night life, and art, music, and shops of the historic downtown.
And in 30 minutes you can be in Columbus, the 14th largest city in America, with a great art scene, nightlife, sports, music, shopping, and great internship opportunities.
If you can't fit an on-campus visit into your schedule, seek out an opportunity to meet with an OWU representative in your hometown.
For your convenience, campus visits are available Monday through Friday and select Saturdays and Sundays during the academic year. We will be happy to arrange a class visit, a meeting with a professor or coach (depending on availability), and lunch in one of our dining facilities. To give us time to plan your visit and set up your meetings, please register at least two weeks in advance.
