“The students and people at Ohio Wesleyan helped change my perspective of life. Everyone had different backgrounds, and it broadened my horizons,” says Briscoe, a psychology major at OWU. “I was struck by the beauty of the campus. And I value the friendships I made at OWU.” He also has fond memories of his time on campus, and various escapades with his frat brothers at Sigma Phi Epsilon.
