Ohio Wesleyan University (also Wesleyan or OWU) is a private, independent, coeducational, selective liberal arts college located in Delaware, Ohio (population 26,000), 20 miles north of Columbus, Ohio, the capital of the state of Ohio in the United States and is easily accessible by car, plane, bus or train.

Wesleyan is a member of the Great Lakes Colleges Association, The Oberlin Group and the Five Colleges of Ohio,a consortium of liberal arts colleges in Ohio: Kenyon College, Oberlin College, College of Wooster and Denison University. Ohio Wesleyan University is now independent and makes no religious demands on its students. Students come from about 44 states and about 47 foreign nations.

Ohio Wesleyan University's charter provides that "the University is forever to be conducted on the most liberal principles"Template:Ref. Various college publications such as Loren Pope's, Barron's, Princeton Review and the U.S. News and World Report place Wesleyan in the top ranks of private liberal arts colleges in the United States for 2005. Ohio Wesleyan is also one of the most gay-friendly liberal arts colleges in the U.S. actively recruiting students from the LGBT populationTemplate:Ref.

The student body is approximately 75 percent Caucasian, 10 percent Asian, 6 percent Hispanic, and 9 percent black. The school's newspaper is The Transcript; the yearbook is Le Bijou. The most popular majors at Wesleyan are Economics, Political science, Psychology and English literature.Template:Ref

History

The roots of Wesleyan reach back to 1841 when Adam Poe and Charles Elliott, leaders of the local Williams Street Methodist Church and residents of Delaware, Ohio agreed on the need to establish a university "of the highest order"Template:Ref in central Ohio.

When the Mansion House Hotel went on the market later during the same year, Adam Poe, a resident in Delaware, Ohio, encouraged citizens of Delaware to purchase the property. Later, 172 citizens raised a $10,000 contribution and purchased it.

However, it wasn't until 1844 when Wesleyan opened its doors as a Methodist-related but nonsectarian college. In the 19th century, Ohio Wesleyan University consisted of several schools: a College of Liberal Arts (founded in 1844), a School of Oratory (founded in 1894), a School of Music (founded in 1877), a School of Fine Arts (established in 1877) and a Business School (established in 1895). The university is one of the first universities named for John Wesley, and is among the oldest of the numerous Methodist universities in the U.S. and abroad. In 1850, four young women matriculated for the regular college course at the Ohio Wesleyan Female College. Three of the four graduated in 1854 and became the first women in America to receive AB degrees.

In the early days of the college, Ohio Wesleyan University presidents were frequently nationally vocal in political debates of their times. The issues in the 1850s centered on slavery and the expansion of the United States. The fledgling Republican party, at that time associated with a more progressive platform, was organized in opposition to slavery. It was newly constituted and unrelated to earlier parties bearing the name “Republican” and they were the antecedents to today’s Democratic party. At particular issue was the idea of extending slavery into the Kansas and Nebraska and the Ohio Wesleyan new Republicans were strongly opposed. Edward Thompson, president of Ohio Wesleyan University in 1857, was vocal in the national political debate and denounced the argument that southern Christians “should retain their slaves in obedience to state laws forbidding manumission” and "The soft and slippered Christianity which disturbs no one, is not the Christianity of Christ"Template:Ref.

The college was originally an all-male institution, but it became coeducational in 1877. Wesleyan's traditions date back to its founding, when the College of Liberal Arts opened its doors with an enrollment of 29 male students taught by three professors. The college was housed in Elliott Hall, formerly the Mansion House Hotel, which had been constructed in the early 1830s when the current East Campus was a popular health resort. The resort was known for the “health-giving although odoriferous waters” of its famed Sulphur Spring, a favorite spot of future generations of students.

The Ohio Wesleyan Female College was established in 1853. In 1857, the female college moved to Monnett Hall, named for school benefactress Mary Monnett Bain. In 1877 the Ohio Wesleyan Female College was merged with the University and became coeducational. Monnett Hall remained the center for women's housing on campus well into the twentieth century.

Beeghly Library - Ohio Wesleyan University

Ohio Wesleyan is a liberal arts college with a population of approximately 1,900 students. The university defines itself as a "community of teachers and students devoted to the free pursuit of truth," and states a goal of developing in its students "qualities of intellect and character that will be useful no matter what they choose to do in later life and liberate them from a narrow perspective of gender, race, ethnicity and sexual orientation in every discipline".

Wesleyan's campus is located near the downtown of Delaware, Ohio and is bisected by Sandusky Street, the main north/south street through the heart of the city. The street informally divides the campus into east and west sectors, the west sector of mostly residential and adminitrative buildings and and the east one consisting of mostly academic buildings.

University Hall (see image below), a multi-use building, is one of the most notable landmark buildings on campus.

Wesleyan's main library is The Leon A. Beeghly Library housing a collection of more than 480,000 items, including rare books, manuscripts, art, microfilm, and federal government publications. Its Audio Visual Center includes a learning laboratory, multimedia classrooms, and individual viewing/listening rooms. The balance of the collection is in two other libraries elsewhere on campus (the science library in the Science Center and the music library in the Sanborn Building).

The Richard M. Ross Art Museum was acquired in 1969. Over the years the museum's collection has been carefully developed through purchases and gifts. The collection ranges from the Ohio Wesleyan University Permanent Collection as well as rotating exhibits. The collection is particularly strong in European art of the late 19th and early 20th centuries; contemporary American art; and Old Master and Japanese prints.

Completed 1898, University Hall is the central academic building at Wesleyan (Ohio)

Ohio Wesleyan University owns The Perkins Observatory, which is located south of the city of Delaware. The observatory houses the Perkins Telescope which in 1931, the year of its completion, was the third largest in the world only after the 100 inch at Mt. Wilson, California, and the 72 inch at Victoria, B.C., Canada. The grounds near Perkins also housed Ohio State's radio telescope, known locally as The Big Ear; the Big Ear was disassembled in 1998.

Several of the campus buildings are listed on the National Register of Historic Places: Austin Manor, Edwards Gymnasium, Elliott Hall, Merrick Hall, Perkins Astronomical Observatory, Sanborn Hall, Slocum Hall, Sturges Hall, Stuyvesant Hall and The University Hall.

Wesleyan affiliates' politics are generally liberal (center-left). In 2004, the Wesleyan newspaper The Transcript found that Wesleyan undergraduates favored Kerry over Bush by 70% to 29%, consistent with Kerry's margin in major eastern cities. Template:Ref

There are both prominent conservative and prominent liberal voices among the faculty in the various departments.

Recent Activism

The past few years have proven that campus activism is not dead on the Ohio Wesleyan campus. OWU students continue to face many of the issues other political mobilizers are dealing with intellectual bickering, issues of war and social justice, apathy from their peers, and sometimes hostility from the authorities. However, the college is known for its left-leaning students and administrations permissive attitude.

On March 17, 2005 the Student Union on Black Awareness (SUBA) and College Democrats organized a protest (http://transcript.owu.edu/033105/topstory2.html) on Sandusky Street in Delaware, Ohio to stand firm against racial injustice on campus and the country. University president Mark Huddleston also participated in the protest.

Ohio Wesleyan University Against the War had no trouble getting more than a hundred students to come out for the Oct. 5 and Nov. 17, 2004 peace rallies in front of the Delaware, Ohio city hall.Template:Ref

The summer of 2003 and the academic year 2003/2004 was marked with yet another controversy. Protests from international students and alumni against the old college president Thomas Courtice took place on the issue of the status of the campus international student advisor, Ann Quillin, an administrator who was forced to leave under unclear circumstances. The issue caused hundreds of alumni and students to protest against the president's office via various forms including picketing and culture jamming.

In April 2002, about a hundred Ohio Wesleyan students gathered in the Mall in Washington, DC in the second day of a weekend of protests for an array of causes, including the Middle East crisis, but also to denounce lending policies of The World Bank that they believed harmed the environment and hurt the world's poor. Template:Ref In February 2003 approximately 100 OWU students travelled to New York City to protest the war in Iraq with partial funding from the Wesleyan Chaplain's office. Template:Ref

The new president Mark Huddleston, during his own college year years, was frequently caught in the middle of student protests. Template:Ref

Wesleyan Ahtletics

Official Logo of OWU Athletics

Ohio Wesleyan participates in the NCAA's Division III and forms part of the North Coast Athletic Conference athletic conference. Wesleyan's strongest sports are lacrosse and soccer. Wesleyan's traditional sports rival is Denison University and Kenyon College.

Ohio Wesleyan won NCAA Division III: Men's basketball (1988), Men's soccer (1998), Women's soccer (2001), Women's soccer (2002).

The nickname "The Battling Bishops" dates to 1925; Up until then, Wesleyan's teams were referred to as "The Red and Black," and "The Methodists". Due to the fact, that numerous schools, including various other Methodist schools, claimed crimson and black as their colors, the university decided to change its name.
