    Mission Statement

    The College of Wooster is America's premier college for mentored undergraduate research. Founded in 1866, Wooster enrolls 2,000 students, who choose from more than 50 academic programs in the sciences, humanities, business and the arts. For over 16 years, Wooster is proud to be a part of a select group of schools recognized in Colleges that Change Lives. The new edition, completely rewritten for 2013, describes Wooster as "one of the country's finest educational establishments."

    Wooster's liberal arts education culminates 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: initiative, self-confidence, independent judgment, creative problem solving, and strong written and oral communication skills.

    For the past eleven years, U.S. News & World Report has asked college presidents and deans which colleges provide the best undergraduate research opportunities and senior capstone experiences. Only two have made both lists for over a decade: Princeton and The College of Wooster.

    Spend some time on campus, and you can't help but notice our students' cleverness, confidence and unmatched spirit. A third of Wooster students play intercollegiate athletics, a third perform in at least one musical group, and a quarter are involved in theatre and the arts.

    Notable Wooster alumni include award-winning filmmakers Duncan Jones '95, director of Source Code and Moon, and J.C. Chandor '96, writer and director of Margin Call; Jennifer Haverkamp '79, director of the Environmental Defense Fund's international climate program; Donald Kohn '64, former vice chairman of the Federal Reserve; Laurie Kosanovich '94, general counsel for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame; and Sangram Sisodia '77, director of the Center for Molecular Neurobiology at the University of Chicago.
