The College of Wooster offers an excellent, comprehensive liberal arts education, culminating in a rigorous senior project, in which each student works one-on-one with a faculty mentor to conceive, organize and complete a significant research project on a topic of the student's own choosing. Through this distinctive program, every Wooster student develops abilities valued by employers and graduate schools alike: independent judgment, analytical ability, creativity, project-management and time-management skills, and strong written and oral communication skills. Founded in 1866, the college enrolls approximately 2,000 students.
From theatre and dance to symphonic and marching bands, a capella and improv to the visual arts, Wooster students find opportunities to participate in and enjoy the arts all over campus.
Those opportunities aren’t limited to students in a particular academic program. In theatre productions and music ensembles alike, biology and political science majors perform alongside those majoring in the arts.
Almost a third of Wooster students follow their passion for making music through two choirs, a symphony orchestra, a jazz ensemble, symphonic and marching bands, a capella groups like COWBelles and A Round of Monkeys, and other ensembles.
Each music performance, music education, and music therapy major gives a solo concert in Gault Recital Hall, while every studio art major mounts a public exhibition of their work in Ebert Art Center. Our performance calendar showcases students, faculty, and visiting artists of national and international renown, while the College of Wooster Art Museum features up to eight curated exhibitions every year.
Creativity and self-expression are more than just the province of a select few at Wooster. They’re part of the fabric of campus life.
