    Make sure you don’t dive right into a busy schedule that will wear you out quickly. Make sure to have your classes spaced out and to make time for eating, homework and a social life!

    A decent school for transgender students. One of the largest groups of LGBT and trans I've seen in this area. That being said the school lacks quality professors with repectable degrees from top schools. Look elsewhere if academics are most important. The athletic teams are mostly kids that couldn't make it anywhere else. So if getting coaching to further a possible professional career is important. Then this isn't the school for you. It's small size is comfortable to some but entering my junior year we are all tired of seeing the same faces. I'm looking for a bigger diverse school for grad school. If I had to do it over again I would never have done undergrad here.

  • I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    Visit every school you're interested in, and visit multiple times. The first time I visited Ohio Wesleyan, I just showed up at the door step and asked for information on the school (I live out of state, and I was passing through the area). I was given a small pamphlet and pushed out the door. Of course, this upset me, and that put Wesleyan at the bottom of my college list. I didn't even want to return. However, my mom was persistent I go back for one more visit, just give it a chance. Thank you, mom. I went into my visit thinking "they better really wow me, or I'm not even looking at them anymore", and I walked out saying "this is where I want to go". A really big tip, is email more than just your area's adviser. Mine was short and not helpful at all, but when I visited, I met Reggie, with whom I formed a personal relationship with, and he has helped me along every step of the way to college. The counselor that was my area's no longer at Wesleyan.

    Prospective students should understand that no school is as wonderful as tour guides and admission advertisements make it out to be. It's hard to believe that any school is as amazing as the school you see when everyone is trying to get you to choose their school. Let yourself fall in love with OWU like I did, but also anticipate that not everything is as it seems. No, the food is not as good as what they serve you and your parents. No, not everyone walks around all dressed up for class. However, what I can tell you is that one thing that doesn't change is the environment. OWU really is a small community and the cheerful atmosphere is real, I promise.

    You don't really need to be involved in Greek Life to meet people, but most of the organizations here are cool. The campus is not as environmentally friendly as they like to claim (but students and administration are working on that). The food is bad, but the campus convenience store provides ingredients to cook with and the community market and local grocery store aren't far away.
