Welcome to the OWU Legacy Internship Program!

The Legacy Internship Program gives legacy students the opportunity to apply for internships in various academic departments and offices on the Ohio Wesleyan campus. For the purpose of this program, legacy students are those students who have a parent, grandparent, step-parent or step-grandparent who graduated from Ohio Wesleyan. The internships allow students to build marketable skills and add internship experiences to their resumes.

Goals for the Program

Give legacy students an opportunity to build marketable job skills while they attend OWU.

Complement the Student Assistantship Program (StAP), which allows all current students to apply for internships. By giving legacy students the opportunity to apply for a Legacy Internship, more Ohio Wesleyan students will be able to participate in internships during the academic year.

Give campus departments, offices, and programs an opportunity to create legacy internships that provide meaningful work experience.
