Ohio Wesleyan University

Educating insatiable problem solvers and agents of change

Founded in 1842, Ohio Wesleyan University is one of the nation’s premier liberal arts universities, offering nearly 90 undergraduate majors and competing in 23 NCAA Division III varsity sports.

Our students hunger to solve problems, save lives, build businesses, create art, promote peace, and change the world. Powered by our signature program – The OWU Connection – learning at Ohio Wesleyan extends well beyond the classroom. We provide interconnected opportunities that span academic disciplines, cultures and even continents.

Our hometown of Delaware, Ohio, one of the top 20 fastest-growing areas in the country, offers students hundreds of experiences in and around historic downtown Delaware. Thirty minutes away is Columbus and its diverse offerings, from professional sports and eclectic restaurants, to major concerts, art galleries and shopping—not to mention impressive internships and work experiences.

After our students graduate, we expect them to be insatiable problem-solvers and agents of positive change. We are rated among the top private, liberal arts colleges for salary potential by PayScale Inc. and are No. 17 on Forbes’ list of America’s “Most Entrepreneurial Colleges 2015.”

According to the seminal guidebook Colleges That Change Lives: “As you might expect, the campus buzzes with excitement. Everyone is dreaming big, and the college has the structure to support those dreams.”
