MLB spring training headlines

Mar 26, 2014

A new season of America’s Pastime (can we still call the MLB that or has the NFL taken over?) is nearly upon us. Before that, though, we can enjoy a full month of preseason baseball in March. With this come stories of injuries, trade rumors, former free agents getting used to their new teams, over speculation of spring ball stats and any number of dramatic things you can come up with. Here, we won’t be doing any speculation of the numbers players are putting up against minor leaguers, but there are some interesting things to look at, in no particular order.

Surviving the housing lottery

Mar 26, 2014

It’s essentially the same feeling as showing up to an exam and realizing that you have no idea how to answer the first question. Your stomach drops, your cheeks flush, you feel all warm and sickly and you just want to run to the bathroom. Nothing puts a strain on your stomach quite like the housing lottery.  

Music in the making: Upcoming ONU events

Mar 26, 2014

Hart delivers dynamic reading

Mar 26, 2014

On Wednesday, March 19, the Department of English was pleased to host poet Matt Hart. He read from his as-of-yet unfinished book “Radiant Action.” Hart’s reading was as dynamic as the name suggests.  The poems read gave insight into the personal side of Matt Hart and how he has evolved as a writer.

On-campus things to do in the spring

Mar 26, 2014

It's officially spring, though Mother Nature has evidently missed the memo.  As the sunny days increase and the weather warms, cramped dorm residents will start crawling out of their winter dens.  

Luckily, there are a number of outdoor activities available on campus to help students stretch their legs.  The following are excellent ways to enjoy a spring day without having to drive anywhere.

DegreeWorks to aid students, advisors in planning process

Mar 26, 2014

The university, as many have noticed, is continually moving forward with technology. We currently register for classes online, look at course assignments through Moodle and email any student or professor any time we need to get in contact. One aspect of our schooling that hasn't been transferred to the online world is our degree requirements. Until now.

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

Validating the value of volunteering

Mar 20, 2014

Why do we volunteer? As a student at Ohio Northern, I've asked this many times. ONU is very good at connecting with the surrounding community and volunteering as much as possible in that community, but this makes me question its value for the communities being served and for myself. What good does volunteering actually do?

Here is my background in volunteering: A lot of it hasn't been official, but I still volunteered, nonetheless. My parents have always loved helping people. I remember doing countless projects with my dad for others. 

"In Ireland" concert performed with flare and diversity

Mar 20, 2014

The ONU Symphonic Band performed a diverse concert of Irish-influenced pieces on Saint Patrick’s Day evening at Freed Center. There were arrangements of the traditional Irish jigs and programmatic pieces that left you feeling like you just visited a local pub and the rolling green hills of Ireland.
