“Why are we here? What’s the meaning of life? What’s my purpose?” These are the kinds of questions Ohio Northern chaplain David MacDonald hears from students he counsels––from Christians to Muslims to Jews to agnostics. MacDonald is passionate about campus ministry in all its colors and kinds, compelling the Methodist elder to write his recent book “Benedict on Campus” about Catholic traditions.

The campus-wide power outage on Tuesday, Aug. 28 disrupted both lights and air-conditioning, but it didn’t discourage over 100 students from attending the Writing Center open house. Students found free snacks, a gift card drawing, and peer tutors explaining the center’s services as they entered the doors. These services have expanded ever since Dr. Justine Post joined the Ohio Northern faculty in 2015.

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.
