    The US Department of Agriculture cited Ohio Wesleyan during an April inspection for inaccurate reporting, failure to review its procedures, and failing to document that it searched for less-invasive methods of conducting the experiments. The university caused traumatic spinal cord injuries to 40 guinea pigs over the course of 2013 and 2014. The USDA states: There was no documentation that a mandatory review of the program is being conducted and that one such semi-annual review hadn't been filed since 2012. Ohio Wesleyan failed to accurately report on what animals it was using to conduct experiments. The new administrator in charge of the program was not aware that this was a requirement! They didn't even mention using guinea pigs. It clearly appears that someone at Ohio Wesleyan is essentially asleep at the wheel. They should also be cited for unqualified personnel for the administration doesn't even know what they are supposed to be doing. These projects should be shut down immediately!

    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.

    If you can control yourself whether to study for the next exams, or to have fun, you are great!

    Make sure you visit all parts of the campus! If you're planning to be a music major, take into consideration that the music building is 10-15 minutes walking distance from he academic side of campus but only 2-5 minutes from the dorms depending where you choose to live.
