The Northern Review's 'ONU Athletics Year in Review': 2017

Dec 30, 2017 - Comments: 0

With the sun about to set on 2017, it’s time to reflect on the year in ONU athletics. 2017 featured three NCAA Tournament appearances, four individual national championships (and two national runner-up finishes), and four OAC team titles. 12 Ohio Northern athletes earned All-America honors in 2017.

Although it is a bit difficult to hand out awards based on the calendar year, as it splits the school year and therefore will include last year’s winter and spring sports and this year’s fall sports, we decided to give it our best shot nonetheless.

How Do ONU Students Tackle Finals?

Dec 08, 2017 - Comments: 0

It is hard to find an Ohio Northern Student more stressed than during the weeks leading up to finals.​

From changing lives to being changed: Kristen Bissett tells of her Dominican Republic experience

Dec 07, 2017 - Comments: 0

The city of San Juan de la Maguana is not a tourist area. In fact, it is one of the oldest cities in the Dominican Republic and continues to be economically dependent on the agriculture cultivated by the inhabitants of both local “barrios” (Spanish word for “neighborhood”) and surrounding mountains. A visit to the city requires a three and a half hour car ride from the closest airport in Santo Domingo. If you would like to know how difficult the trip is, however, just ask Kristen Bisset.

She has made it twice.
