OWU is small and I like that, a big reason why I looked here. I didn't want to go to a big school like OSU and so I checked out other colleges like OWU (ex: Otterbein). Some times, people have never heard of OWU, but I've met quite a few who have recently and they don't seem to think anything bad about my school choice. There are a few things I'd like to change, but those problems mainly dealt with roommate issues and how, really, poorly they were dealt with. I wished the agressor couldn't manipulate things as easily as they can because both sides need to be heard. Classes were great--many choices to choose from, although getting it at a good time is a problem--but the dorm life wasn't what I expected. I won't go into detail, but most nights I called home crying to my mom because of a certain roommate who had issues with every little thing with me and her suitemate. It was horrible, but luckily moving on is easier that I thought. I usually spend most of my time in my dorm room, or in class, and outside sometimes when it's nice out. Other than that, I sometimes go out for special events but that's about it. I'm an indoors person mainly but I do like to spend some times outside.
The teachers are amazing! I only had one teacher I didn't like--they were nice as a person, I just didn't care for them as a teacher. I not really sure if the teachers remember my name, but they know my face and know that they know me. Class participation is a must for most classes, but teachers are understanding if you tell them you're not a big talker. I know I like to study, and I study a lot, but I'm not so sure about other students. From my dorm life, there wasn't much studying going on aside from me and my roommate. My major is Studio Art and History (not Art History, there's big difference!) I've had a look at what I need to do to get the double major and it looks tough, but I know I can do it.
Actually, students come to class in regular clothes and not pajamas as I was told. Some do, but it's not the majority. I'm probably not the best person to describe any of this because I don't really hang out in groups outside of class. I've hung out with my roommate and her friends--we're all similar in our majors, art/music, and so we get along well. Other than that, I'm by myself and just observe others around me. Without knowing more about them, I can't really say much about who hangs out with who and what they talk about.
The Best Things
The classes and being able to choose your own roommates
The Worst Things
Rommates who are overberring and find everything about you is wrong, the Jaywalk daily trot, conflicting schedule/classes
