in the midst of my second semester at OWU (o-woo,
the only thing anyone will ever call it). I originally
wanted to go to a bigger school, farther from home,
but OWU gave me a great scholarship (as they do
for many students) and I liked the school, so here
I am. The city's a little boring, but it's such
a friendly place. Classes are small, professors are helpful, coursework
is challenging at times, but always doable. I'm still not
a fan of the small student population (can't go ANYWHERE
without knowing people, even after just being here for a
week—but some people like that sort of thing). Biggest con:
you HAVE to be on the meal plan and live
on campus. few exceptions made. I'm hoping this rule will
change soon—I think it's fairly new.
There's always a
lot going on on campus. Which is good, because without
a car, you're not very able to get off campus—well,
you can walk into Delaware for a variety of small
town dining and shopping options, but that's about it.
life's pretty nice here. I didn't rush, but I might
next year. Frat parties are fun, though they're all pretty
similar so they get boring after a while.
offer engineering or stats majors, which were two of my
likely choices before coming here, so that was a bit
of a letdown.
this isn't really following a very logical
the people are really what make OWU a good
place—I believe most every faculty member and professor I've met
here is genuinely kind and helpful. Most of the students
are pretty decent too.
