Throughout the twentieth century, the College of Wooster continued to grow. The institution became famous for its Independent Study program, which requires all senior-level students to complete a sizable research project. Many people compare the project to a master's thesis. In 2005, 1,827 students enrolled at the school. Seven percent of the student body consisted of international students, representing over forty different countries. Among the college's more prominent graduates are Stanley Gault, chief executive officer of Rubbermaid; Arthur Holly Compton, winner of the Nobel Prize in Physics; Karl Taylor Compton, president of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology; and Timothy Smucker, chief executive officer of The J.M. Smucker Company. Dijana Plestina, a first lady of Croatia, once served on the College of Wooster's faculty.
