Next Genius Scholars on Campus


Popularly known as Oh-Wooo! Ohio Wesleyan University, in Delaware, Ohio is one of the most comprehensive liberal arts schools in the country. What makes the university distinguishing is its focus on connection - it’s the foundation of The OWU Connection. The beautiful, historic, 200-acre campus has students of all faiths, backgrounds, communities and traditions. OWU is about 20 minutes north of the state capital Columbus. Whether it's studying abroad, taking a valuable internship, participating in a travel-learning course, or proposing a theory-to-practice grant, OWU students bring learning to life.

Students at Ohio Wesleyan University can choose from more than 90 majors in the fields of arts, humanities, natural sciences, social sciences, economics, business, finance, and many more. You will learn to think critically and creatively with the student faculty ratio of 10:1. A junior at OWU says – “You can go global, think big, and connect classroom to the real world with the OWU Connection”. With an undergraduate enrollment of 1,600, 27% of OWU students personalize their program by completing two majors.

Community service projects, research opportunities and travel learning courses help the students with their academic requirements. Students can choose from nearly 100 campus clubs and organizations at the college and find all the activities they want to do and with the friends who love them, too. The Richard M. Ross Art Museum enriches the community, the university, and the lives of our students by mounting exhibitions of artists from around the world. The Delaware Entrepreneurial Centre at OWU is the nation’s first such collaboration among a small liberal arts university and the surrounding city that help students learn how business really works.

Did you know? Forbes magazine ranked Ohio Wesleyan as the no.1 entrepreneurial college in Ohio, and 17th in the nation. Internships at OWU not only complement classroom learning, they also provide opportunities for networking, personal growth, career exploration, and resume building.

The campus residential life is all about enjoying new surroundings and learning to live in harmony. 96% of the students live on campus all four years and together they build the invaluable connections that highlight a liberal arts education. With everything OWU has to offer to keep you active, the rich athletic tradition continues to achieve the highest levels on the field.

A combination of all these factors, and more, attract inspired high school Indian students who are aiming to gain a world class education. This is also reflected in the fact that OWU partnered with Next Genius is 2019 and in the first year itself, six Next Genius Scholars from cities across India enrolled at OWU – joining the community of the Battling Bishops.
