I started out as a Voice Perfomance major, and have since switched to a Vocal Music Education major. Both programs are exquisite, as they both fall under the music department. At Ohio Wesleyan, the music department is strong and taken seriously. It is enjoyable because I am learning a great deal and I have made a lot of new friends. The professors are phenomenal, yet personable.

I dont't drive, so I cannot comment much about the parking. However, from speaking to other students, it can sometimes be difficult to find a parking spot if they bought the cheap $10 parking spot, as opposed to the $100 spot. Students are almost always ticketed if they violate some sort of parking law.

Ohio Wesleyan University is extremely diverse politically, religiously, sexually, ethnically, etc. Being a liberal arts school, the community is accepting towards everyone, whether they be a minority or not. All types of culture and people are accepted and even welcomed.

It is the perfect amount of strictness a college requires.

There is literally only one bus service. And it only runs until 4:30. And it doesn't run on the weekends. And it doesn't even go all the way to Columbus.

Its pretty f-in terrible. Nothing to do in Delaware, OH. Except Clancey's and thats only fun if you're extremely drunk.
College Freshman 2013-11-19T02:57:40Z
Not terrible; not the best.

Lots of campus events for how small of a school it is.

don't have much interaction with the Greek life

Scholarships at Ohio Wesleyan University are great. I received a great amount of financial aid for my academics and a competition I participated in. The financial aid office took great care of me by taking care of everything for me, made sure everything went smoothly, and made appointments personal and beneficial.

The drug scene is a pretty decent size, not non existent but not huge. A decent amount of people smoke. But other drugs are as popular as drinking because both are equally accessible. However, if there are any issues there is a fire station located in the middle of the campus with more than capable EMT. Most cases involving abuse of alcohol or drugs involve freshman and most life threatening incidents involve alcohol, not drugs. But more often than not, there aren't many issues are far as I can see.

The off campus dining is pretty good, but most of it you cannot pay for with food points, and only pay with your own money. Besides the money dilemma, the food itself is not bad. However, there are not many a large amount of options, such as at OSU, but its not bad.

The academics here are comparable to some baby Ivy League schools and Ivy League schools. I am a biophysics major, but since I am at a Liberal Arts College I get the benefits of a well rounded education. I am extremely satisfied with my education thus far. I have had some of the best intructors from University of Michigan to the University of Chicago. They are always willing to go above and beyond to help you. If you get to know them on a personal level, they can do amazing things for you when it comes to graduate school, networking, and possibly getting a job

Parking on campus can be awful. Also, Public Safety will ticket without a warning if you accidentally park in the wrong area. Parking is not marked very well. There is also only B parking, which costs $100, while there is no C parking, which costs only $10.

Normally, the computers have decent accessibility because they have a whole computer lab in the basement of a dorm with a printer and another one in the 24 hours part of the library. The printing in the dorm computer lab is great until the paper runs out, which is often. Printing is mainly done in the main part of the computer lab, which is great hours during the week and okay hours on the weekend. The WIFI on campus is pretty good, but on occasion is just decides to not work, and the computer labs are crowded. They computer labs are also crazy during midterm and finals week. Having a laptop is recommended because are large amount of homework is done online, so if you don't have a laptop you may have a hard time keeping up with the class and its work.

There is a wide variety of people on campus varying in race, religion, and ethnicity and from many different parts of the world, even though this is a small liberal arts school. I have met some of the most interesting and worldly people I have ever met by just being on this campus. I greatly appreciate this because I grew up in a little town where everyone was the same and it was quite boring.

The bars cater to the 21 and older, but they allow under-aged students in and mark them with an easy enough to wash off 'X' on the back of their handse. On campus is where you find most of the under-aged parties and activities, which makes them easy enough to access with no transportation. Alcohol is easy enough to get from older students, so there is plenty of under-aged drinking in dorms and at parties. Most parties are actually well managed and do not get too crazy, but some of the off campus parties can get scary because the people who host them are odd and have no care of what happens to the facilities.

I think academics are my favorite part of OWU. My professors have all been great and willing to help. We offer a lot of different classes for how small we are and it's pretty easy to register. We also have amazing off-campus and study abroad programs.

Health & Safety:
I feel pretty safe on campus all the time. Public Safety is always patrolling at night and there are also safe-walkers to walk you back if you're alone at night and feel uncomfortable walking back. We also have emergency buttons in a few places to use if you feel very unsafe. Also, I feel completely safe leaving my laptop and things like that in the library or study area to go to the bathroom or something.
College Sophomore 2013-10-17T16:33:35Z
We have a lot of new computers this year in the library that are really nice. There are also two computer labs with printing on the residential side of campus. So, in that department, I think OWU is doing a good job. The wireless network, however, is pretty awful. BishopNet works most of the time in that you can access the internet, but sometimes it completely shuts down for a few hours and it's difficult to get all of your devices (especially cell phones) connected.

Regardless of being a DIII school, sports are very popular among the students at OWU. There is always a sporting event to attend, and you will know someone on practically every team. It also makes for a nice study break.

Although there is not a lot of options on campus for nightlife because Delaware is a relatively small city, we are in such close proximity to Columbus and if you know people from various organizations, there is always something to keep you busy.

Overall, my experience with OWU's financial aid office has been decent, but it has had its ups and downs. At times, they are more than helpful and are willing to do anything on their end that they can. Other times, however, it is a struggle to even get them to email me back.

This school is crazy about providing opportunities for people to expand beyond just attending classes. I am proud to go to a school that works extremely hard to get exclusive opportunites for work experience, internships, and study abroad. Therefore, the majority of the students take part in some form of extra academic program outside the regular curriculum that the school offers. There are also over 100 different organizations and clubs at the school, with new ones popping up all the time to satisfy new interests and needs. The entire campus gets involved in events hosted by these organizations, i.e. charity events, fairs, games, lectures, and fundraisers.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
