Ohio Wesleyan University Featured in 2011 Edition of Fiske Guide to Colleges

June 24, 2010

DELAWARE, OH – Ohio Wesleyan University has been selected for inclusion in the 2011 edition of “The Fiske Guide to Colleges,” an independent publication that highlights the nation’s “best and most interesting institutions.”

Edward B. Fiske, a 17-year education editor for The New York Times, created “The Fiske Guide to Colleges” more than 25 years ago to provide helpful information to college-bound students and their families.

The 2011 edition includes more than 300 schools, and assesses each institution in terms of academics, social life, student body, and financial aid. The Fiske Guide accepts no consulting, advertising, or other fees from colleges and has no outside relationship of colleges working on its behalf.

Ohio Wesleyan University is one of the nation’s premier small, private universities, with more than 90 undergraduate majors, sequences, and courses of study, and 22 Division III varsity sports. Located in Delaware, Ohio, just minutes north of Ohio’s capital and largest city, Columbus, the university combines a globally focused curriculum with off-campus learning and leadership opportunities that translate classroom theory into real-world practice. OWU’s close-knit community of 1,850 students represents 45 states and 57 countries. Ohio Wesleyan earned a 2009 Presidential Award for Excellence in General Community Service, is featured in the book “Colleges That Change Lives,” and is included on the “best colleges” lists of U.S. News & World Report and The Princeton Review.
