I am currently a junior at OWU, andQuite BrightEconomics
I am currently a junior at OWU, and I have to say that I am very disappointed in this school. I didn't expect much, as it is not a very elite school, but I felt the full scholarship they offered outweighed the lack of prestige. Big mistake. This school is VERY easy -- I've gotten straight A's with very minimal effort. Some below have commented that standards at OWU are low. Well, those people are right. This is just a very mediocre school -- I would say it is easily the worst liberal arts school in Ohio. I have spoken to people at other colleges, and they regard OWU as a bit of a joke -- no one thinks very highly of its academics or the caliber of students who go there. This is upsetting to me, as I got into several more elite schools, and could have gone somewhere better than OWU. I just hope I can get into a halfway decent graduate school, despite the shame of having graduated from OWU. Only one more year of boredom left.

Question
I am amazed by the polarity of opinionsSuper BrilliantEnglish
I am amazed by the polarity of opinions on this forum -- people seem to either love or despise OWU. I would say that I fall somewhere in the middle. I attended OWU briefly, but I found the courswork to be too easy and so I transferred to another, more rigorous school which I liked much more. So OWU isn't as bad as some here have made it out to be -- it depends on what you're looking for in a school. I do agree with the person who said serious students should not go here -- they will just be bored. But those who had good things to say about OWU had some valid points too.

Question
What an utter waste of time.Quite BrightPsychology
What an utter waste of time. The quality of education is terrible, the student housing is abyssmal, the food is wretched, clubs and organizations are non-existent, the academic facilities are in miserable condition, the students are mostly dumb and rich, with a few anti-social international students thrown in (the much touted "diversity" is a myth: American and international students barely ever interact at all), and the poor reputation prevents anyone from going on to a good law, med or grad school (not that many students at OWU are inclined to go on anyway). All in all, a very poor school -- stay away!!!!
