Cultural convo hour explores implicit biases

Apr 15, 2014

"I'm a white guy—about as white as you can get," Rev. David MacDonald said when he opened the session, citing his English and Scottish heritage. But, that doesn't mean I'm not affected by the perceptions and biases of the world, he said.

"What I think is true may not be true to others," he said. MacDonald also added that no matter what culture we come from, each of us comes to the conversation with implicit biases.

Attending multicultural events: A vital experience

Apr 09, 2014

The weather isn't the only thing changing this time of year. 

Several of your fellow ONU students sacrificed several hours of a Saturday morning to work on improving and passing the torch to the new officers of the multicultural organizations. 

The "'Executive Retreat"' was held by the Department of Multicultural Development to ensure that everyone involved has a good sense of where their organizations are going next school year, and how they are going to get there. 

And you are a big part of that. 

Active Minds shares secrets, raises awareness with Post Secret U

Apr 09, 2014

Ohio Northern University's fairly new student organization, Active Minds, is determined to make a difference in the mental health of ONU students. The group's mission is to change the stigma about mental health by presenting people with facts and allowing them to know that they are not alone. Everyone goes through stress and problems in life. 

No need to #PolarBearUp; Spring has arrived

Apr 02, 2014

Even though the first official day of spring was March 20, those of us at ONU haven't gotten to experience spring until just recently.  There are many universal signs of spring that are enjoyed by everyone regardless of location; however some signs of spring are uniquely intrinsic to experiencing the season here at ONU.

1. Now that the weather is getting warm you may be fortunate enough to have class outside. Some professors will oblige to the request of students to hold class under a nice shade tree or sitting at a group of picnic tables.
