Help grow the network of over 40,000 Bishops in the world.

The A/PART program is a network of alumni and parent volunteers who are passionate about the future of Ohio Wesleyan. A/PART members assist with college fairs, calling admitted students, submitting student referrals, and hosting or attending regional admission events.

The A/PART program aims to:

  • Identify students who are great prospective Bishops
  • Encourage these students to apply to Ohio Wesleyan
  • Help accepted students see that they were born to be Bishops

One Student Opportunity: The OWU Connection

Contact Prospective Students

Sharing stories, making connections, and connecting personally is what Ohio Wesleyan is all about. Connect with prospective students as they search for the right college for them. Through “high school assignments,” we connect you with high school seniors in your community. When students from your assigned schools visit OWU, are admitted, or make their enrollment deposit, we will send you a notice and ask you to contact these students.

Support Regional Events

Host, coordinate, attend, or provide financial support for a prospective student reception in your area. The Office of Admissions has receptions throughout the year in various parts of the country as well as on campus and YOU can be a part of them.

Future Bishop Clipping Service

Do you see high school students doing amazing things? Tell us about it!

Regional and local newspapers, school newsletters and publications and other media outlets share stories about outstanding high school students and we want to hear about them. It can be anything from National Merit or Achievement recognition to athletic successes to participation in science fairs, a school musical or outstanding community service.

Alumni should send in the relevant publication or clipping along with any available information on the student including current high school, grade level, mailing address and phone number.

Clippings can be sent to the Alumni Relations Office (attention A/PART) at
Mowry Alumni Center,
61 S. Sandusky St.
