At OWU, our students are hungry to solve problems. Save lives. Make peace. Even change the course of history.

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.

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.

OWU is named a Best National Liberal Arts College by U.S. News & World Report. See what respected national publications have to say about us: RATINGS AND RANKINGS.
