Ohio Wesleyan is always on the move. We're adding academic programs, internship and travel opportunities, sports teams, clubs, and recreation activities for new students with new needs and interests.
Introducing new majors, new sports, new opportunities
In just the past two years, OWU has launched eight new majors in rapidly-growing fields, built campus inclusivity with seven newly renovated small living units and themed houses, and partnered with our local Delaware community to build an entrepreneurial center and sustainability plans.
In between those developments, 24/7 dining with a new food service provider, AVI, two new varsity sports teams, as well as one of the largest endowed student scholarships have been added to the growing list of options for a personalized, rewarding student experience.
All of OWU's new majors combine focused study with expert faculty, real-world internship and research opportunities, and the expansive understanding that comes from studying the liberal arts.
Fall 2018 will field OWU's 24th and 25th varsity athletic teams: women's rowing and men's wrestling. The athletes in these new sports will join a long and distinguished tradition of success in competition, in the classroom, and in life after college.
The $4 million Dr. James F. Morris '44 Endowed Scholarship is the second-largest at OWU and is being awarded beginning in fall 2018 to students with financial need.
New Housing & Dining
Funded completely from generous donors, OWU constructed three new Small Living Unit duplexes (SLUplexes) and a new Honors House just in the past two years. Each SLUplex houses 24 students and the Honors House holds 27 residents.
Now, the historic Butler A. Jones House of Black Culture is undergoing construction anticipating completion spring 2019.
OWU welcomes AVI Foodsystems as our new food service provider. Key highlights include 24/7 dining halls and a licensed Starbucks coming soon.
New Clubs & Activities
Low cost, low time commitment, and open to all majors, OWU's new marching band program is launching fall 2018. The band will perform at sporting events and plans to create new campus traditions with their array of instruments and a color guard.
OWU offers students a wide range of clubs, social and cultural activities, and fitness opportunities. And students are welcome to start new clubs to match their own interests.
