From Ohio Wesleyan University

For everyone's well-being, Ohio Wesleyan is not hosting on-campus visits during the spring of 2020, but we invite you to take a virtual tour, create a custom viewbook, chat one-on-one with students, faculty, and staff, and connect in other ways as you search for the right school for you. Go to owu.edu/econnect for a full list of ways to reach us. We're here to help!

Ohio Wesleyan students take advantage of vast opportunities: 90 majors, internships, mentored research, study abroad, 25 varsity sports, and fine and performing arts. The OWU Connection sets us apart, designed to help students gain the global knowledge and real-world experience employers and graduate schools value. Our historic 200-acre campus is a short walk from more than 25 restaurants and coffee shops in our Ohio-friendly hometown, and we're just north of Columbus, named America's #2 city for new grads. Our Branch Rickey Scholarship guarantees $30,000 to students with at least a 3.4 GPA and 23 ACT or 1150 SAT.
