OWU Named a Best ‘Bang for Your Buck’
The Princeton Review has named Ohio Wesleyan University one of “The 200 Schools That Give You the Best Bang for Your Tuition Buck” in the new book Colleges That Pay You Back: 2018 Edition (Penguin Random House / Princeton Review Books), based on an analysis of more than 40 factors at hundreds of U.S. colleges and universities.
Robert Franek, the Princeton Review’s editor-in-chief and book’s lead author, said the schools selected: “stand out for their outstanding academics and their affordability via generous financial aid to students with need and/or comparatively low sticker prices. Students at these colleges also have access to extraordinary career services from their freshman year on, plus a lifetime of valuable alumni support.”
According to Ohio Wesleyan’s listing in the book, OWU “strives to prepare (its) students with the necessary experience to be employed after college.” The Office of Career Services, now part of the division of University Advancement, provides individual counseling, creative programming, and technological services, and invites students and faculty to request workshops on topics they feel would benefit the student career path, such as salary negotiation or graduate school preparation.
