About College of Wooster

Located in the vibrant city of Wooster just one hour from Cleveland, Ohio, The College of Wooster enrolls approximately 2,000 students from 46 states and 65 countries. Wooster is the most internationalized campus in Ohio and 19th among liberal arts colleges in the country.

Wooster offers an excellent, comprehensive liberal arts and sciences 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.

Every year since 2002 U.S. News & World Report has asked college presidents and deans to name schools with outstanding undergraduate research opportunities and senior capstone programs, only two schools have made both lists every year: Wooster and Princeton.

Total Student Population Approximately 2,000
