On Wed., Sept. 21, ONU's Red Cross blood drive collected 47 units of blood—enough to help 141 people. This is just one of the many successful drives Ohio Northern has held in the past nine years that they've been partnered with the Red Cross. Over that time span, donors have given over 6,700 units of blood, saving up to 20,109 lives. That’s about 2,235 lives a year—equivalent to 60 percent of ONU’s student body.
