Hi,

I am a student at Ohio Wesleyan and was wondering if there are other gay students from OWU posting on the forum here?

Hi milee13,

Hi milee13,

Ohio Wesleyan? No, not at all. It was founded as a Methodist school in 1842...We get our name from a fellow named John Wesley. John Wesley wasn't a rich man, he didn't manufacture anything, not even cigarettes or soap, he didn't give his college a nickel, and he isn't buried here. But the Methodists who founded our college loved his name so much that they used it over and over again. Ohio Wesleyan is no longer a Methodist college....our student newspaper had a survey poll last year among students and found 60% are agnostic/atheist.

I was just wondering if there is anyone in the vicinity from this forum.
