Extra-Curricular Activities

Student Y Meeting

Student Y meeting in 1969

Extra-curricular activities, such as clubs, events, and athletics have evolved through Ohio Wesleyan University's history. These opportunities help students discover their passions and interests outside the classroom. From the club SUBA (Student Union for Black Awareness) to Orchesis dance performances to musical ensembles, organizations remain a relevant part of the OWU campus despite changes over time. Organizations that promote service, celebrate identity, and encourage teamwork have remained at the forefront of student involvement. For example, service work has always been a foundation of OWU. While means and methods have evolved, clubs continue to promote service and make it part of their activities. For example, Student Y was one of the most popular clubs on campus in the 1960s and, though it is no longer active, there are other groups, such as Circle K, that do similar work today. In many ways, extra-curricular activities reflect the enduring values of the OWU community.
