Welcome to the final semester! We know this is school year looks different, and many of you and that you have questions pertaining to your senior experience. Below, are some FAQs and answers from the Senior Class Advisory Board and their advisors.

As always, feel free to direct additional questions to classof2021@owu.edu.

Contribute to the Yearbook!

The Senior Advisory Board is working hard on making a great yearbook that highlights the entire class of 2021! 

We want to see photos from your favorite OWU memories: bonfires, lunches on the JAY, Homecoming, Denison Day, studying in the library, student organizations, intermural sports, Greek events, and more!

If you have photos you'd like to submit for the yearbook, please email the SAB Yearbook Chair, Morgan Liszeski at maliszes@owu.edu. 

Commencement

We are so excited to be able to gather together on Saturday, May 29, to recognize all of your hard work and wish you well as you begin the next chapter of your life.

Because the pandemic is still impacting public events, the Commencement Participation Form was due by April 23, 2021 and is no longer accepting registrations.

As of this writing, we are planning a morning ceremony inside Selby Stadium. Our largest campus venue, the stadium will permit each graduate to invite up to four guests and still maintain mandated public health guidelines for physical distancing. Each guest will be required to have a ticket.

We are monitoring large-gathering guidelines carefully and will update you if procedures change. We also will be webstreaming your special day live so that all of your family and friends are able to watch you complete your Ohio Wesleyan journey.

If you have questions, please email them to classof2021@owu.edu so that we can compile and address them. Additional information, including a list of frequently asked questions also is being compiled online at owu.edu/commencement. The OWU Bookstore will reach out separately with cap-and-gown information.

Congratulations again on your impending graduation! Enjoy the rest of your on-campus journey!

Who should I contact about ideas and other questions? 

Please reach out to the Senior Class Advisory Board at their cover email, classof2021@owu.edu. An advisor or member of SAB will connect with you.
