The University

Ohio Wesleyan University is a national liberal arts and sciences university with a major international presence. It is located in Delaware, Ohio, a small community just 20 miles from Columbus, the nation's 16th-largest city. OWU offers 93 majors, sequences, and courses of study, as well as 23 varsity sports. OWU is one of only 40 institutions featured in the highly regarded book Colleges That Change Lives.

The Community

The academic community includes 140 full-time faculty and some 1,850 students from 42 states and 37 countries. All full-time tenure-track professors hold Ph.D.s or the equivalent. All classes are taught by professors, not teaching assistants.

The Campus

OWU's 200-acre campus includes 11 buildings on the National Register of Historical Places. Our newest building, the Meek Aquatics and Recreation Center, is LEED-certified and uses geothermal wells to help with heating and cooling.

One of the oldest residential facilities on campus, the landmark Stuyvesant Hall, received a $14 million renovation in 2012-2013, making it a premier OWU student address. Housing choices include traditional residence halls, themed housing, small living units, and fraternity houses. (OWU's sorority houses are nonresidential.)

OWU's science facilities include the state-of-the-art Schimmel/Conrades Science Center, two observatories, two nature preserves, a greenhouse, and a vast science library.

Arts facilities include Chappelear Drama Center, which features two stages; Edgar Hall for 2-D art; Haycock Hall for 3-D art; the Richard M. Ross Art Museum; and three smaller exhibit spaces. The campus also includes the elegant Sanborn Hall, the hub for Ohio Wesleyan's extensive music programs. Perhaps the most well-known performance space is the 1,100-seat Gray Chapel with its Klais organ, one of only six such instruments in the United States.

Selby Stadium, which houses football and men's and women's track and field and men's and women's lacrosse, is the fourth-largest privately owned Division III stadium in the nation. It seats 9,100 spectators and is believed to be the oldest facility in the United States constructed to Olympic specifications and remaining in its original configuration.


Offering more than 90 majors, minors, and concentrations, Ohio Wesleyan confers three degrees: the Bachelor of Arts (BA), Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA), and Bachelor of Music (BM).

The University also offers pre-professional programs in dentistry, law, medicine, optometry, public administration, physical therapy, and veterinary medicine. In addition, students may take advantage of 3-2 programs in 13 engineering disciplines with such prestigious institutions as the California Institute of Technology. A four-year Honors program challenges exceptionally able students, and Course Connections allow students to examine a topic of interest from multiple disciplinary viewpoints over several semesters.

Ohio Wesleyan offers abundant opportunities for independent research and learning through its special programs: Wesleyan in Washington; New York Arts; the Philadelphia Center; and the Woltemade Center for Economics, Business and Entrepreneurship. Students can gain international experience on six continents through a multitude of study-abroad programs, Travel-Learning Courses, and the University's competitive Theory-to-Practice Grant Program.
