I love Ohio Northern University. For me it isn't about sports, activities, or academics, even though they are each unique and prominent throughout the campus. it is about the feeling the campus gives me. That feeling is home. This university has given me the opportunity to branch out of my comfort zone and find my complete self. I have met the greatest people and professors that have changed my life. This campus is so personal and I appreciate that I am not lost in the crowd.
This tiny school in the middle of nowhere Ohio has a lot more to offer than a large state school focused on pumping out graduates. Ohio Northern University's uniquely small size allows students to form lifelong relationships with both teachers and their peers. The bond that the "polar bears" create over the course of 4-6 years at Northern is unlike any other and provides opportunities to network and find jobs for their upcoming future. As an involved student in both my classes and extracurricular activities, I have been able to make an impact on my community and truly find a home away from home at this university. I feel great comfort in how safe the school and surrounding areas are, and know that I always have campus security and peers to make sure that I will get where I need to in a safe manner. Overall, Ohio Northern University provides exceptional opportunities for its students and beyond prepares them for the world to come post graduation. If you are considering this school for your higher education, I could not recommend it more!
It's a great college with amazing people. It's small which is a good thing when it comes to knowing everyone and getting more one on one time with your professors. We like to have fun here and next to academics ,sports is what we live for.
Overall i believe Ohio Northern University is a good campus. I feel safe when walking outside after class after dark. The biology program at onu is a great. The teachers involved in the program are easy to talk to about your study's as well as life. They teachers are overall great at explaining concepts.

There are many things I have learned and taken from my experiences at ONU. The most important are communicating skills and independence. I have always kept to myself or my family. Here at ONU I am majoring in Athletic Training, and it has forced me to be more socialable. Everyday I am working one on one with Athletic Trainers and athletes. I have learned how to communicate with them on a professional level and how to feel comfortable while doing it. I am also pushed everyday to work out problems on my own. Although my professors are there to guide me, they also encourage me to be independant and not always lean on them for answers. After graduating from ONU, I plan on attending grad school for Physical Therapy. As a PT I will be working with people everyday. To be successful, I will need to have strong communication skills with my patients and their doctors. I will also need to be able to design rehabilitation programs on my own and not depend on others to do it for me. The skills I have obtained thus far from ONU will most certainly contribute to a successful future.
A small, community-oriented university that is well-known for its pharmacy and engineering degrees in particular.
I think the worst thing about my school is the slow reaction time of some staff when an issue needs to be addressed. However, this if usually on the nonacademic side of the experience.
It's in the middle of nowhere.
The kind of person who should attend this school is one who is focused. The students at this school know what they want to do, and they know how to get there. While they are concerned with their education, they are also concerned with helping others. The students are caring, and give much of their time in community service and assistance on campus. Most of the students come from Christian backgrounds, and have high moral standards.
One who doesn't like to attend class on a regular basis, and one who does not know what they want to do as a future career after their second year.
I have not set foot on that school yet. I will get there.
The students who attend Ohio Northern University are mostly white, middle-to-upper-middle class, and from very small rowns, much like the town the university is in itself. Diversity is less than 10 percent.
My school is known for having a very strong Pharmacy program. Most students studying at the school are Pharmacy majors, or somehow Pharmacy related majors.
It's small enough that you feel right at home.
I brag about the small size. I love how small the classes are. It allows you to get to know your classmates and professors on a more personal level.
The most unique thing is the quality. Out of the colleges thatI had looked at, Ohio Northern had the friendliest people. Even now that I am enrolled as a full-time student here, the people are still incredibly friendly and nice. Walking around campus you can always expect at least five people to say hello to you, and most of the time, those people are complete strangers. The people here truely care about you and treat you as another friendly individual.
Yes, but not really and they are changing! Ada, OH is in the middle of cornfields, but if a student says their isn't anything to do, they haven't tried at all to find something. There are always activities - ranging from card games to theatre performances to intramurals to world-famous speakers.
While Northern's student body is mostly from Ohio, the out of state and international student population continues to grow.
Middle of the road to conservative, middle class, normal students
No TAs! 95% of the professors actually care if you pass and will help you if you ask for it.
Northern is a student's campus. Students are able to do whatever they dream to do and have the support of the faculty and administration to do it.
