I think something that is unique is the student population, not only is it very small (just under 2,000), but it is also very diverse. And i think thats great, because there is not one stereotypical OWU student.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Don't be set on one school, and visit all the schools that you are accepted to. You may not get your first choice school, or maybe you will find that your first choice wasn't the right fit for you. Go where ever you feel comfortable, it is four years! And those four years can either be great, or they can be miserable.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The one thing that really bothered me about my school was that the freshman were not all together for dorms, however, that has changed for the 2009-2010 year. All of the Freshman will be living together next year. The food is really good, but I wish that it was easier to cook your own meals.

Great professor attention. They want you to do well, but are not going to make it a piece of cake. Very academically rigorous for the better. Hands on experience that students at large universities would not get.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Visit the campus, decide what kind of environment you want to learn in. Also, does the college offer the opportunities you are interested in and have there been graduates that have succeeded in the path you would like to take?

Ohio Wesleyan is a homey type of school that's great for educating you without the hassle of a cold hearted bureaucracy.

Definitely the friendliness of the people there. Everyone was really nice when I went to visit and seemed to care about whether I enjoyed myself. There's also a big emphasis on practical uses of whatever it is you're learning. You're not just learning to just a requirement out of the way, you're learning in order to take it along with you and apply to whatever you ultimately decide to do.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Go to where it feels right for you. Don't go just because they have an awesome program or are top ranked. Though those are important, it's more important to go someplace you mesh well. If you don't like the place you're in, it doesn't matter how good the program is. Your mental health and grades will suffer. College is to learn and get a job, but it should also be enjoyable. If it's not enjoyable, something has gone wrong. And don't be afraid to get help when you need it.

Strong diversity. My roommate freshman year is from Egypt! If I didn't pick Ohio Wesleyan, I never would have had a best friend from South Africa, or get to eat traditional Vietnamese food on a weekly basis.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Parents need to be mentors in helping their child choose the right school for them. The parents should have some influence, but should not be too overwhelming in making the decision for the college, such as pushing for one school over another, or basing a choice off of cost alone. You will always find ways to pay for tuition. Students, the best advice I would ever have on picking a school is: it's never too early to start looking! I started looking my freshman year of high school, and through all my research, I basically knew I was going to Ohio Wesleyan University by my junior year. Don't be afraid to ask questions when you go on tours of different schools, and choose wherever feels best. One school might look better, but the place for you is where it feels most like home.

What's unique about your campus?

One of the best things are the Small Living Units. Students are able to live on campus with an off campus feel, and still stay closely connected to campus. Then, you get to live and surround yourself with a mission that you are passionate about.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

Ohio Wesleyan is a small liberal arts school that attracts a great amount of students from the east coast as well as many other parts of the US.

Describe the students at your school.

Overall, I feel a good amount of students at Ohio Wesleyan are privileged students who spend their parents money and waste a lot of time. There are definitely a lot of students who are academically focused and care about a bright future with many career goals in mind too.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Make sure that it is the best fit for YOU and no one else.

how culturally diverse it is. there are a lot of international students in such a small school but it allows you to learn about people from around the world and you dont have to be from a foreign country to become friends with people who are.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

For parents, I advise them to allow their children to have a say in what university they attend. Although parents may feel like they know whats best for their child, the students have an idea about what kind of school would best suit their learning abilities. I f parents are concerned about campus safety and the like then go with your child to the school they want to visit in order to have a better sense of where your child will be spending their time. For students, I suggest doing some research about what you think you would like in a university before visiting a campus. Most campuses are attractive looking but may not have what you need. Otherwise, when you get there don't be afraid to try different clubs that fulfill your needs; this way you'll be able to meet poeple with similar interests and will make lifelong friends from the beginning.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

i guess i would have to say the worst thing about my school is that maybe there's too much to chose from in terms of being involved in something on campus. someone who is a litle lost might have trouble figuring out where they fit in. But otherwise i don't have any complaints

Don't worry about money. Go where it feels right. You'll know it when you get there.
