“I chose Ohio Wesleyan because of everything that it had to offer. The diverse student population, the friendly and warm faculty as well as administrative staff, but, most importantly, the number of opportunities that were available for me to utilize from freshman year.”
At OWU, our students are hungry to solve problems. Save lives. Make peace. Even change the course of history.
Life is short. Be Ravenous.
Our goal at OWU is to nourish your mind and spirit with knowledge, with adventure, with meaning, and leave you hungry for more. To us, that’s the point of a liberal arts education. To help you find and pursue your passion – with abandon. So feel free to dig in. Partner with a professor on a research project. Win a grant to explore new academic territory. Start a club. Try an intramural sport. Get a taste of, well, everything in sight.
Food for thought.
Here, you’ll feast on interconnected experiences – across disciplines, across cultures, even across continents. After you graduate, you’ll be an insatiable problem-solver and an agent of change.
Since 1842. Still Insatiable.

OWU’s Small Living Units, or “SLUs,” bring together students with shared interests. Residents share responsibilities for the house, plan things like service projects, campus speakers, and more.
“Originally, I was looking for zoology programs in Ohio, which is how I found OWU. The professors I spoke to as a prospective student were very friendly and helpful, and when I came here as a freshmen, they remembered my name!”
“I chose OWU because I was looking for a small liberal arts college with a comprehensive zoology program and the opportunity to pursue my love of language. At OWU, I found both.”
“OWU won me over when I saw the extent of its Ancient, Medieval and Renaissance Studies Program, and when I saw the jaw-dropping expanse of opportunities to study abroad. The small size was necessary as well.”
“I came to visit OWU on a whim. As soon as I met the people on campus, I knew it was the place I wanted to be. Everyone was welcoming and wonderful, and I think the kindness of the OWU community is really special.”
