We are heading into the final chapter of our undergraduate careers at Ohio Wesleyan University. For all of us, it has taken hard work, sacrifice, and dedication to reach this point.  The 2022 Senior Advisory Board is already hard at work planning safe and welcoming events for our senior year. Please see the information below regarding what we have planned for our class! 

You may know that, in previous years, seniors have paid dues in order to participate in senior activities. This year, students WILL NOT have to pay dues. All of the events and celebrations listed below are being supported by University Advancement and Student Engagement & Success Office. 

Senior Events For The Year: Please visit owu.edu/seniors for our full event list and regular class updates! (*events pending COVID-19 restrictions.*)

  • Senior welcome back dinner and champagne toast on August 25 (RESCHEDULED for September 27, 2021)

Make the most of your senior year!

  • With your senior class gift, you can support an area that’s meaningful to you (scholarships, your major, athletics teams, etc.) and continue the legacy of senior class philanthropy. Make your gift to access the Senior Gift Night at the Backstretch, the Senior Donor Dinner with Rock, and to receive a senior donor cord for Commencement. 
  • You can make your gift securely online at owu.edu/seniors or pay by check. Mail checks to: Ohio Wesleyan University, University Advancement, 61 S. Sandusky St. Delaware, OH 43015.
  • Visit OWU Career Connection to revise your resume/CV (essential for seniors!), develop an exceptional cover letter and/or personal statement, and explore career options and your skills, values, & career interests. See the Career Connection website at owu.edu/careers for more information.
