Meet Your Admission Counselor

Your Admission Counselor is your personal guide to the OWU admission process. Our counselors will help you navigate the college search and answer any questions you have about life at Ohio Wesleyan. No question is too large or too small, too simple or complex, so don’t be shy about asking. Just call, email, or text, and your Counselor will get back with you quickly.
