Being on college campuses, like Ohio Northern’s, can give students a false sense of safety when being surrounded by their peers. Students don’t realize everything they can implement to keep safe and knowledgeable throughout their years on campus.

I’m going to share my top five tips on how to keep aware and safe on campus. While these are tips for Ohio Northern’s campus, they can be used anywhere at anytime.

Ada seasons have begun to change and so have student moods. Once the sun starts setting earlier and the workload gets heavier, students mental and physical health can start to deteriorate. That deterioration makes it hard to focus on the important things like school, friends and most of all sleep.

Comfort of a cornfield

Ohio Northern University is like a second home for every student who attends the university.

Ohio Northern is just that kind of place. The university makes its students feel as if they have the support of their family and closest friends all year round. There is a closeness and a connection between students and their professors that cannot be rivaled by any other university.  

It's my duty to fight anti-Semitism

Twenty-nine minutes away from the campus of Ohio Northern, tucked back in the corner of Lakewood and Glenwood Avenue in Lima, Ohio is a Temple—a place of worship for the area’s limited Jewish population. The Temple Beth Israel-Shaare Zedek is the only Jewish synagogue in northwestern Ohio aside from the Congregation B’nai Israel, an hour and a half away, just outside of Toledo. Its congregation is small, and most of its attendees are aging, many in their sixties and above.

Defining the millennial

Definitions of a millennial vary across the internet and fluctuate frequently. The Pew Research Center did not define a set of years until March of this year: 1981-1996. Forbes says 1981-1997.  The United States Chamber of Commerce uses 1980-1999.

The key to a well-balanced college life: Being more aware of your health

Nov 05, 2015 - Comments: 0

To most college students, a healthy lifestyle is not a priority when compared to studying for finals and finishing projects. Towards the end of the semester, class work increases while healthy snack options decrease. 

Have you ever been too busy in between class to eat? In a demanding college lifestyle, eating healthy can often be difficult. Poor student eating habits are not the only issue to student health. As the sun sets earlier and the nights get colder, students are more apt to stay indoors and skip physical activity.

On February 10, 2015, three Muslim college students living near the University of North Carolina’s Chapel Hill campus were shot in the head and killed by 46-year-old Craig Stephen Hicks.

The students, Deah Barakat, 23, Yusor Abu-Salha, 21, and Razan Abu-Salha, 19, were murdered over what the police and the accused claim to be a parking dispute. There has been no official confirmation as to the real motive for the killings.

Hicks, a self-proclaimed atheist, posted several anti-religious messages on Facebook prior to the shooting.

Here are a few films you should put into your schedule while you’re stuck inside because of the frigid cold:

Arctic attacks ONU

Jan 29, 2014

Temperatures extending below zero degrees Fahrenheit. Wind chills reaching close to -20 degrees. As I wake up in the morning and check my cell phone for the weather, I groan and wish I can cover my body with my blankets and stay warm for the continuation of the day.
