The New Year is here. Well, at least for Asian Lunar Calenderers it is– a time of food, friends and fireworks. And a new start. That’s why the Asian American Student Union (AASU) decided to host a celebration in honor of the holiday. 

The lunar New Year is a big event in many Asian countries, with festivities easily lasting up to 15 days. 

Families will clean out their houses in order to rid themselves of any ill fate and make way for good luck, said Chou Tran, an event attendee and P5.  People are given days off from work and school in order to fully participate.

Feb 05, 2014

Here at Ohio Northern, we have our very own collegiate Habitat for Humanity chapter where it holds multiple service events throughout the whole school year. Our chapter's biggest event is our spring break trips. 

This spring break, we have the privilege to go to three awesome locations: Davidson, NC , Jackson, MS, and Dade City, FL. Students who go on these trips have an awesome opportunity to help others by donating their time over spring break to help build a habitat home. 

New chapel group "Emerges"

Emerge. Ever heard of it? 

Well, Emerge is a chapel group that Chaplain David MacDonald started last semester. It is intended to be a spiritual small group meeting that gets together once a week on Sunday evenings. 

With the Emerge program, MacDonald hopes to explore faith in an in-depth way with students and equip them to be able to do the same with others. 

The group is currently comprised of about seven freshman. MacDonald wanted to first invite freshman to be a part of the group to help them "merge" into campus life.
