My daughter is experiencing issues with WiFi in her dorm - Maglott. It is connected briefly and then goes out for 20+ minutes. Apparently others are experiencing the same issues. She doesn’t want to go to the Library all the time, especially later at night. Any ideas what she can do? She has already talked to IT and to her RA.
FYI Ohiohealth Urgent care will do PCR test with 24-72 hour turn around on students without symptoms!! ( Kenton and Marion).
Hi all. Newcomer here. 😁
What's the best or closest airport when considering flights home during breaks? We're in NY.
~thanks
Being that the last post on here is from August, I'm skeptical about getting responses. Here it goes.
We are starting the process of furnishing my daughter's dorm room. What are some do's and and don'ts? Pinterest has some great tips but those rooms look way bigger than those at ONU.
A couple of specific questions...
What is the size of the window? I forgot to measure things when we were there for orientation. I am hoping to get a tension rod to hang some sort of privacy curtain because....creepers!
How much laundry detergent should she bring? I'm guessing she's not going to need the giant Costco size.
Shelving. Specifically for the mini fridge and Microwave. What worked best for you? I found a few online (went a little nuts-o on prime day) but the reviews were not great. Probably need something sturdy to hold the microwave.
TV or no? I think she has 19 credit hours so, she probably will not have time to watch anything.
Where do rising sophomores go to find a roommate for next year if they don't already have an idea of whom to room with?
Good Afternoon, I have twin boys that are making their final decisions about where to attend Fall 2021. One was accepted to the Business School and one to the Engineering Program. Would you be able to tell me how those programs handled in person vs. virtual learning last semester and what are the plans for this semester?
Has anyone heard how move-out day for December will be handled?
Some colleges are asking students to COMPLETELY move out, in case spring term is virtual.
As a mom to a freshman, I don't know how a regular December move out works, let alone a COVID fun filled one!
So sad that Cortney Kiser will not be cheering this fall. This will be the first fall since she was 7 or 8 that she won't be cheering fall football. Looking forward to the fall is bittersweet.
Go Bears!
Anyone here from Brecksville or surrounding areas?
Be safe during move-in day. Wear your masks please! :)
Hi ONU families! Has anyone had a child that lived in Affinity Northwest? We're trying to see anything with a picture of the room etc, but all we can find is the one short video on the ONU website. That's a good video, but just thought someone might have a picture of a room decorated or arranged differently just to see the options. :) Thanks!!
My sons orientation was today at 11 we are still waiting on a link. Anyone else have this issue?

Ohio Northern University is committed to campus safety and is launching a new email and text system called ONU Alert and a new app called Rave Guardian. This enhanced safety technology will replace the current Nixle Alerts system. ONU Alert is for receiving weather and emergency communications. Rave Guardian turns any smartphone into a personal safety device. ONU Alert has already uploaded existing ONU student and employee email addresses and available mobile numbers into the system so there’s no need to sign up. Download the free Rave Guardian App from the Apple App Store or Google Play. Then access your account using your ONU Username and Password to set up your guardians. Students can check their email for additional details.

ONU is strongly encouraging all students, faculty and staff to get fully vaccinated to help protect our campus community from COVID.

Helen Ludwig forged her way and made an impact with her students and peers at Ohio Northern.

You see her leadership in Polar Bears who are serving their communities during the COVID-19 crisis. Her teamwork when alumni come together to support our students in need. Her perseverance in professors and students as they tackle a new way of learning virtually. Her strength is still here in all of us adapting and helping each other through this pandemic.
