The rate of acceptance and the retnetion rates should change dramatically. Too many under qualified students are being accepted into the school, and too many are sent packing. Students should be more informed to the difficulty of the course work. The town is small, filled with enough to do, and great for a academic work environment. I spend most of my time in my room or in the library when im studying. I also spend a significant ammount of time doing experiment and lab work in out beautiful facilities. OWU administration is forever changing and i have stopped carring a long time ago. Controversy? im not sure there are too many of those. People who recognize what OWU has to offer realize show substantial rpide and speak prowdly about the university when brought up on conversation with friends or others. Students complain about the difficulty of course work, the work load, the math department (which sucks!) and usually the difficult science requirements.
Nothing in this arena needs improvment as far as i am concerned. The professors all know my name, all care, all are available after class for additional help, and all are genuinly interrested in teaching us.
The black demographic is fairly segregated from the majority of the white and international students through predominately black initiated organizations which im my opinion serve to divide students, not foster any kind of working academic environment where all can interact and learn from each other. Religion, i do not care fot it, but the school has a wonderful chaplin and a great department that teaches, councils religious matters etc... The students are very understanding for the most part of different cultures and other peoples religious beliefs. there is quite a large wealthy or very wealthy demographic that drive expensive cars and indulge in alot of drug and alcohol use, but many of that make up are also normal hard working students. A conservative, wealthy, city going individual with little exposure to international or modern forms of thought would be out of place. OWU students are from everywhere, 12% international i think, or international and international nomad as we cal it. Many students are politically active and engaged, but most just go about their lives doing whatever makes them happy, and politics dont make anyone happy in my experience.
