What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ohio Northern University is a hometown college full of people from near and far who come because of small class sizes and high statistics in academics and job placement. The facilities are outstandingly presentable. The residence halls are divided up by class (freshman, sophomore, etc.) and get nicer and more convenient the older you are.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ohio Northern wasn't exactly what I imagined when I began thinking about college my freshman year in high school. However, the more searching I did and the more visits I took, it felt right being on a small campus like this one. I love how close everybody is and it feels like we are truly being prepared for life after school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall it is a really great school, though there is not much around. It is about 20 min to the nearest town. The art department was a bit disappointing not what they hyped it up to be. The food in the cafeteria is good but its basically the same thing everyday.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ohio Northern has provided me with a stellar education, and I could not have asked for teachers more dedicated to making sure their students fully understand course material and are prepared for graduate school or jobs. For the 2016 graduates, 94% of them have either enrolled in graduate school or found employment within 6 months of graduation. All of the professors I have had the pleasure of knowing during my time at Ohio Northern have expressed so much passion for not only the subjects they teach, but for each and every one of their students. I have personally experienced this kindness many times, but most specifically, when I was going through a tough time, my Medicinal Herbs professor called me into her office and made me a hot cup of tea and let me talk to her like she was a second mom. Class sizes are relatively small, so you get the chance to develop relationships with your professors and classmates that you wouldn't normally have in large colleges. Although the classes can be difficult, there is always an abundance of help- from free tutoring to being able to have one-on-one discussions with professors. On campus housing is very expensive but required for the first three years. It does provide a great way to meet new people, especially in the freshman dorms. One of my fondest freshman memories is playing twister in the hallway after getting an email about our first snow day. The freshman dorms are your typical tiny bedroom, but ONU does also offer on-campus apartments with a kitchen, living area, separate bedrooms, and a bathroom. Laundry is free and you are typically able to get a washer or dryer without too long of a wait. The campus meal plan is expensive, and not worth it for the quality of food served in MAC. That is probably my one and only big complaint, the food. There is very little variety and on more than one occasion, students have found raw or under-cooked meat being served. There are many opportunities for students to get involved on campus, and at the beginning of every semester, organizations hold a Welcome Fest to get new students acquainted with the wide variety of clubs, sports, and organizations. I have personally been involved with Model United Nations, Student Senate, Kappa Phi, and rugby. Greek life is big on campus, but it is not the only opportunity for students to be involved in a philanthropic organization. Athletic organizations are also big on campus, and student athletes are held to a high standard both on and off the field. At ONU, education comes first, so sports are played more for the love of the game than anything else. But that doesn't mean we aren't competitive, and many students go out to support our teams. Ada is a lovely little village, but there is not much to do. There is an abundance of pizza places, a small movie theater, and three small bars that many college students over 21 frequent on the weekend. Karaoke nights are Wednesday nights, which tend to draw a large crowd and are always a fun time. There are some house parties on the weekends, but they are not huge parties like you would find on larger campuses. Ohio Northern is a very safe environment because it is so small and everything is within walking distance. Overall, I have thoroughly enjoyed my three and a half years at ONU and I feel very proud to say that I will graduate from this university. The education I have received here is second to none, the student (although there is not much diversity) are intelligent and charismatic people who care very much about their education. It is a very expensive school, and I will graduate with more debt than I would like, but the memories and experiences I have gained at Ohio Northern University make up for that.

If you don't mind living in the middle of nowhere, it is an amazing school to go to. The education is fantastic, the people are awesome, the campus is safe, and the overall quality of life here is great. It's a fun place to be if you find the right group and are committed to your education.
