A new year is well underway at Oklahoma Wesleyan’s residential campus, with enrollment again exceeding OKWU’s four-year average in multiple areas. OKWU Accelerate, the University’s program to equip high school students by offering high-quality dual-credit classes, has increased significantly, and residential enrollment also showed more than 2% growth over average.

“In a culture easily swayed by the latest public opinion, OKWU’s mission stands out as an unapologetic, unchanging commitment to Christ, Scripture, Truth, and Wisdom,” said President, Dr. Everett Piper. “We are blessed to see these numbers again confirming that commitment.”

The University also continues to build academic and athletics programs, adding just this year Writing & Editing, Business Information Systems, and Management Information Systems majors, a Critical Thinking minor, Men’s Wrestling, and more. OKWU continues to be a leader in Adult and Graduate studies as well, celebrating 30 years of excellence in adult higher education in 2017.

“Our students come to OKWU from all different walks of life to receive an education that truly means something,” Executive Vice President John Means said. “We are very proud of our team and our students for impacting culture every day on our campus and around the world, and we are excited for all this year brings.”
