From the School

The College of Arts & Sciences: Accomplished scholars, teachers, authors, scientists, researchers, and mentors are at the center of the College of Arts & Sciences, the largest of Ohio Northern's undergraduate colleges. More than 50 areas of study, eight pre-professional programs, and numerous concentrations and options offer Northern students considerable flexibility and opportunities in their career preparation.

Students Say

The fairly remote location of Ohio Northern University has done little to prevent the school from developing “a great academic reputation, especially in the Midwest.” This “great all-around school…really places an emphasis on life after college,” especially in “teaching students to think critically and out of the box.” Students admit the academics are “tough,” and that toughness “challenges us to do our best,” but they say the small class sizes and “personal attention from teachers” make the challenge one that “allows students the opportunity to be successful.” The cozy school size means “it is much easier to get to know your professors on a more personal level.” This benefits students since educators at Ohio Northern “are so willing to help you succeed in whatever way they can.” Indeed, the “extraordinarily friendly” staff “are always willing to help,” and “every professor has office hours and encourages you to utilize them.” The goal of the teaching staff, students say, is “preparing their students to be contributing members of society” and giving them “the knowledge, skills, and abilities to be successful throughout life.” The result is that the typical ONU student is “a hardworking individual who strives to do well in the classroom and gives back to the community.”

The culture of the campus is one of respect, friendship, and community. ONU offers ecumenical and interfaith opportunities for spiritual growth and development.

Students Say

Ohio Northern is not a campus teeming with diversity. Its students are “typically middleto upper-class white students,” though students are noticing efforts to address this in recent years. ONU students share other common traits. They are “intelligent and outgoing,” a “very friendly and easy to talk to” group who tend to have “strong leadership skills and is outgoing, compassionate, intelligent, and very involved on campus.” Though it is true that “students often tend to hang out with other students similar to them,” this is not a sign of divisions on campus. “There is definitely no tension between any groups of people.” The school’s size means “you don’t go anywhere without seeing someone you know,” a direct result of the “close-knit feel of the campus.” Those attending recognize that “being a student at Northern requires dedication to academics,” but they also acknowledge, “it helps to have a balanced social life on campus.” Overall, “students interact well with one another and work well together.”

Overview

From The School


Location

Ohio Northern University is an independent, comprehensive University situated on 342 beautiful acres in the scenic village of Ada, Ohio (population 5,500), which provides a small-town atmosphere that compliments the friendly environment found on campus. ONU is easily accessible by major highways and conveniently located near major cities such as Columbus, Dayton, Toledo, and Fort Wayne, Ind.

Campus Facilities & Equipment

ONU is located in a friendly, rural setting in northwest Ohio, about an hour from Columbus and other major cities. Situated on 342 beautiful acres, there's plenty of green space around 60 modern, major buildings, including the University's own deluxe Inn. The University is strongly committed to developing policies and practices that are environmentally friendly. These initiatives are outlined at www.onu.edu/green.

The 95,000-square-foot Mathile Center for the Natural Sciences is a student-centered academic research and learning facility that strengthens signature programs in pharmacy and chemistry/biochemistry and blends hands-on teaching excellence with advanced technology in a functional modern environment.

Students Say

The “cozy village” of Ada, Ohio, “provides all the essentials, from groceries to a movie theater to bowling lanes to bars.” However, it doesn’t provide the kind of vibrant nightlife of an urban setting, so students often have to make their own entertainment. And they do. “There are tons of on-campus activities provided by the student planning committee,” such as open music nights, music, “a ghost hunt around Halloween, a comedy show, or a foam party.” Relaxing and studying consumes plenty of free time. “Education comes first,” one student notes, while another says, “School is my number one priority, and I spend quite a bit of time in the library.” Many students take to leaving town for things to do. Nearby Lima, for instance, has “a shopping mall, movie theater, and tons of restaurants and grocery stores.” Ada itself provides “a small bowling alley, movie theater that plays one movie a week at discounted prices, a ferocious pizza parlor, and a Mexican restaurant.” And, of course, there are parties. “If students are looking to find parties,” students note, “they will.” That said, “people who never drink have plenty of options for having fun, and ONU often brings entertainment to campus, too.” Dorm luxuries increase as students climb through the grades, and Ada’s small town feel means that “the campus is also very safe.”
