Why should a student choose ONU?

Students feel a sense of belonging and that each student matters here at ONU.  People are open, relaxed and friendly.  The campus community is small enough to care and yet big enough to challenge with the number of student outcomes and opportunities for involvement.  

What is your favorite thing about college admissions?

I absolutely love helping students follow their dreams while witnessing how they develop leadership, innovation, and deepen their faith along the way.

What is your favorite thing about Ada?

I love traveling and meeting people from different cultural backgrounds, but Ada is home and feels like home.
