Welcome Prospective Student-Athletes!

If you’re looking for a school with a rich history of athletics (75 NCAC championships and counting), facilities that are among the best in NCAA Div. III (come take a look at the Scot Center), and spirited traditions (hope you like the soothing sounds of bagpipes), then enrolling at Wooster might be the right choice for you! Here are some facts to consider:

  • With about one-third of the student population being varsity athletes, you will feel right at home on Wooster's campus
  • While there are no athletic scholarships at the NCAA Div. III level, over 75% of Wooster students receive financial assistance, and there are plenty of academic-based scholarships to apply for
  • With the one-on-one support and guidance of a faculty adviser during your senior year, you'll take a journey of self-discovery — culminating in a major research paper, an art exhibit, or a performance. This collaborative student-designed project is called Independent Study (I.S.)
  • Six months after graduation, more than 90% of Wooster graduates are employed or in graduate school
  • Wooster alums have played in the Super Bowl (Blake Moore, Cincinnati Bengals), directed a box-office hit (Duncan Jones, Source Code), made a difference in the environment (Jennifer Haverkamp, International Climate Program), and worked as a top-ranking financial expert (Donald Kohn, Federal Reserve) among countless other highly-successful careers
  • Many Wooster teams receive strong support from the community (like when 3,000-plus fans pack Timken Gymnasium for the annual Witt-Woo basketball rivalry)
  • The city of Wooster has a vibrant community that will fulfill all your shopping and entertainment needs
  • Wooster is a founding member of the North Coast Athletic Conference, which achieves balance in highl-level athletics (68 national championships since 1983) and academics (20 Academic All-Americans® during 2014-15 alone)
