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

For over 50 years, 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

Refer a Student

Do you know a  student who you think would be a good fit for Ohio Wesleyan? Let the Office of Admission know!

OWU alumni referrals of current high school students help us grow the Bishop family. Any student who is referred by OWU alumni and applies, is admitted, and enrolls, will receive a $4,000 OWU Alumni Referral Award ($1,000 per year)!

The deadline to refer a student is December 15 of their senior year of high school.

Represent OWU

Put all that bragging about being a Bishop to good use! College fairs are one of the best places to tell people about how special Ohio Wesleyan is. Answer questions about OWU, distribute admissions material, and bring awareness about Ohio Wesleyan and all the opportunities it offers it's students.

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.
