1. FALSE. Almost everyone at Northern receives some form of financial aid. There are lots of merit-based scholarships, and federal loans as well. I'd say most students actually pay closer to $20,000 a year. Even though it's a little more expensive than some schools, you really are getting your money's worth for a top-notch education and college experience.
2. FALSE. Well, we are in the cornfields, but there's sooo much stuff to do on campus. 150+ organizations, both social and professional; varsity and intramural sports; chapel activities; Greek life! The school is small enough that you can do what you love. For example, even if you are a pharmacy major, you can be in theatre shows.
3. FALSE. Greek life at Northern is one of the best ways to make the most of your college experience. Scholarship, Leadership, Service, Friendship. With 4 sororities and 6 fraternities, you are bound to find one that can be your home away from home. The support system it provides is irreplaceable. BE OPEN MINDED! Check it out! It's no wonder 1 in 5 student at ONU are Greek!
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.
