Ohio Northern University believes that you deserve an education that prepares you for the world ahead. We believe that college should be treated as an investment – and our students have seen the highest returns on investment in the entire state. We believe that your time at ONU paves the way for the rest of your life.
With Ada as your backdrop and ONU as your guide, there is no limit to what you can achieve. Five colleges provide nationally ranked arts, sciences and professional programs, and a diverse array of high-impact learning opportunities. At ONU, we believe in high-impact learning. That means that you’ll learn by doing – through internships, community outreach and more.
The world doesn’t stop changing just because a syllabus is set. And there’s a good chance that you’re interested in more than just one area of study. That’s why at ONU, we’ve created a flexible curriculum designed to meet your needs and keep up with the world. Here, you’ll be able to craft a learning experience that suits you perfectly. Low student-to-teacher ratios mean you can work closely with instructors and take on leadership roles early in your education.
College is about creating who you will be for the rest of your life – and ONU is perfect for discovering just who that is. Here, you’ll find teachers and students who will help you uncover what you love to do. Whatever you’re interested in, you’ll find a club or group devoted to it at ONU. If there isn’t a club already, you can start one yourself.
We’ve heard time and time again that our campus is one of our biggest selling points. Schedule an individual visit and come see for yourself. It might be a little different from what you expect, and that suits us just fine.
