For International Parents
A Letter from the Director of International Admissions
Every year, U.S. News asks college presidents and deans which universities have the best senior capstone experiences and undergraduate research opportunities. Only two schools made both lists for the last 16 years: Wooster and Princeton University. So, why should you choose Wooster?
A few important things to know about The College of Wooster:
- Within 6 months of graduating, 92% of Wooster graduates are in jobs or graduate school.
- Our graduates have been accepted to Harvard, Yale, Stanford, MIT, University of California, and many other outstanding universities for graduate school.
- Our graduates are employed by prestigious companies, including Microsoft, General Electric, the World Bank, and many others.
- In addition to our 50 Bachelor’s degrees, we offer 3+2 dual degree programs with Washington University St. Louis, Case Western Reserve, and Duke University in Engineering, Health, and Environmental Sciences.
- The College is located in a medium-sized town in Ohio, USA, and is home to 2,000 undergraduate students.
- Research is the most important component of a Wooster education; every single student gets to work one-on-one with a faculty mentor for their entire senior year, doing research in their major field of study.
- Campus life is fun – we offer over 100 student organizations, a Center for Diversity, and strong programs in sports and music.
- We offer internships, study abroad, and job shadowing – to any student.
Deciding on a college is a big decision for both students and parents, and at Wooster we want to answer any of your questions! Feel free to contact our office anytime!
