Ohio Wesleyan University


Founded in 1842, Ohio Wesleyan is a selective, diverse, national liberal arts university in Delaware, Ohio. Students obtain a wide breadth of knowledge through rigorous study of the arts, humanities, natural sciences, and social sciences. Personalized honors study offers unusual opportunities to talented students, while internships and research are encouraged of all students. Small classes afford personalized attention from professors, all of whom hold the Ph.D. or highest degree attainable in their field. \r\n Ohio Wesleyan is located on an attractive 200-acre campus. Students come to the university from 43 states and 45 countries. Housing options include six large residence halls with special-interest corridors; a number of smaller special-interest units, ranging from the Creative Arts House to the Peace and Justice House; and 11 fraternity houses. The five sorority houses are nonresidential.\r\n Students can participate in more than 100 campus organizations as well as 23 NCAA Division III men’s and women’s athletic teams. OWU’s distinctive commitment to public service is reflected in annual student mission trips across the U.S. and abroad, the widely acclaimed Sagan National Colloquium lecture series, and extensive community service opportunities. \r\n In 2007, the Ohio Wesleyan Department of Education was granted accreditation without provision by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE)—an unusual distinction and a benchmark for high standards not easily achieved by smaller universities; the OWU Epsilon chapter of Alpha Sigma Phi fraternity received the North-American Interfraternity Council’s 2006 Award of Distinction, which is the highest award given to an undergraduate chapter; the OWU men’s soccer team made it to the national semifinal game of the NCAA Division III tournament; the 2004-2006 National Poet Laureate, Ted Kooser, spoke on campus; the 2006 Commencement speaker was CBS National News Correspondent Byron Pitts, OWU Class of 1982; the 2006 theme for the Sagan National Colloquium public affairs series was “The Citizen Scientist: How Science Affects Our Daily Lives”; colloquium speakers included F.
