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.

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.

The 2014-2015 Ohio Northern Housing Lottery is right around the corner. In order to be eligible to participate in the ONU Housing Lottery, students must complete a housing agreement and emergency contact information online through the MyHousing area of Self Service Banner.

How did you spend spring break? Maybe you found yourself soaking up some sun the beach, making a little extra cash, or simply watching hours of your favorite Netflix show. For the third year in a row I spent my spring break on a trip with Habitat for Humanity. This year I traveled to Dade City, Fl. with a group of 35 other ONU students for a trip that was one for the record books.
