Ohio Northern University Reviews
Review Ohio Northern University
Ohio Northern University was a great experience. Firstly, they are committed to helping their students attend by providing extensive financial aid to those who need it. The professors are all very committed to the students, and do all they can to help you not only in class, but with anything you might need outside of class. There are many student organizations on campus, including religious groups, multicultural groups, academic groups, and even for fencing, video games, dance, and writing. The Student Planning Committee (SPC) is also committed to hosting at least one to two big event(s) each month. The campus is beautiful, and the facilities are great. As a student you have access to a lot of great technology and resources. It's also very safe. The format of ONU's degree requirements pushes for a well-rounded education, and guarantees that you will have opportunities to put your learning into practice, ensuring you will graduate with real-world experience.
When I visited Ohio Northern University, I was in a program called HOBY Leadership a program that emphasizes the need to help the community. It was a fun experience and through that experience I also had a privilege to look around the university. The students there are proud of their school and it shows. They are enthusiastic and are helpful. Their campus is nice and presentable, they have nice lakes near the dorms and unique animals like the turkey vultures and swans. However what I find really appealing about Ohio Northern University is there engineering majors there. I know they're most recognized for there pharmaceutical program but I like there engineering programs the most. In my school we focus on technology and machine industry, so my teachers talk about this college a lot and how good they are. Also I seen how many programs they have there, it is overwhelming in my opinion but I'm still sticking with engineering.
Students engage with knowledgeable and friendly professors. Everyone is very kind and the community is small and close knit. The university is known for its competitive Pharmacy program. It is also planning on breaking ground for a new Engineering building soon. The campus is picturesque with many trees. There is a lot of open space. The university has begun to make a commitment to sustainable energy and has three wind turbines at the edge of campus. The university also houses its own observatory, perfect for viewing the dark sky. Located in the village of Ada, security is never a huge issue. However, there is little to do off campus as Ada is small. Overall, the university is a great learning environment with most students graduating on time.
