Mar 20, 2014

Dear Campus Community,

Thanks to everyone who helped make the 2014 Winter Career and Graduate School Fair such a success.  Held in the Field House on February 26, 2014, organizations were present to meet ONU students for the purpose of hiring full-part time positions, internships/co-ops and for admission to graduate and professional schools.  Targeted areas were Arts & Sciences, Business Administration and Engineering.

Here is a recap of the event:

111 organizations attended (34% increase over last year!)

221 recruiters attended

What it means to be Polar Bear Strong

Feb 26, 2014

I dislike quite a few things about our school.

Honestly. There are some qualities of Ohio Northern that make me furious: murderous swans, how our school chooses to polish sidewalks instead of clear them and the fact the C-Store gets bleaker and emptier each time I visit it. 

I hate Pharmacy majors when they are studying, and therefore I hate myself just about 98% of the time. It drives me crazy when I eat chicken for more than one dinner at Mac a week, or when all of the printers seem to be broken. 

Future of fracking fleshed out

Feb 19, 2014

The use of natural gas as a fuel has expanded rapidly during recent years. Within this industry, a notably promising and controversial advancement has surfaced: high-volume horizontal hydraulic fracturing, or, more simply put, fracking. This unconventional technique has allowed for massive amounts of previously unreachable fuel deposits to undergo extraction; it involves pumping a highly pressurized mixture of water, sand and chemical additives into buried sedimentary rock in order to free and capture trapped natural gas. 

Sochi problems reveal larger issues

Feb 19, 2014

Before the 2014 Winter Olympics, most people had probably never heard of Sochi. Of course, now it is becoming a household name as reporters from around the world descend on this Russian resort city. 

Unfortunately, not all of the attention is positive.

As a developing country in the post-Soviet era, Russia has surely hoped to make a good impression on the world as it hosts the Olympics. But Western journalists have seemed mostly to notice the many flaws of Sochi.
