The Opposite of Ordinary

At Ohio Wesleyan University, we believe passionately that learning is as much about doing as it is about studying. That’s why we offer so many ways to help you transform the theory you learn in class into practical experiences. Mission trips, research fellowships, study abroad programs to fit most any schedule, and our unique Theory-to-Practice grant—these are just some of the ways your OWU experience will be anything but ordinary.
