Alumni Resources

Once a Polar Bear, always a Polar Bear!

The Office of Alumni Relations would like to encourage all ONU alumni to take advantage of the services ONU provides!


Where to stay when visiting ONU?


Services provided for ONU Alumni:

ONU Alumni Journal provides alumni with updates on the university, current student activities, information on alumni and friends, and upcoming events on and off campus. Have an update to share? Contact the office of alumni affairs.

ONU Alumni Connect is an online directory and an event registration website available to all alumni. This online tool enables alumni to search and find classmates to reconnect or stay in touch and allows alumni to register for events online. All alumni are included in the directory unless specifically requested otherwise. If you have not already signed up to use the ONU Alumni Connect, please visit to set up your username and password. Alumni still have the option to register for events without signing in, however, the benefit of signing in gives alumni full access to the alumni directory, and a faster event registration. 

ONU Alumni Website provides alumni with up to date information on events, volunteer opportunities, alumni clubs, and other alumni programming and portals to other information at ONU that alumni may find useful. The website received a recent facelift and has a new look and feel. Visit and see our new look!

ONU Alumni House provides alumni with a home base while visiting campus! All alumni are welcome to come and visit the Alumni House (Former President’s house) at 115 West Lima Ave. We have coffee, tea, water, free Wi-Fi, and campus tours available. Call/email ahead or just stop by and see us!

ONU Alumni Identification Card provides access to those alumni living locally and wish to access King Horn Sports Center. An application is required which can be found in the below PDF. 

ONU Alumni Social Media provides alumni the opportunity to stay connected and keep up to date by the minute with our alumni Facebook page, alumni club Facebook pages, Twitter and more. Click HERE for a listing of all our social media sites to like or follow!

Regional Alumni Events are alumni events in different cities around the country where the office of alumni relations brings ONU to your own backyard! These events give alumni who live farther away from campus the opportunity to meet the President and first lady, meet and mingle with other area Polar Bears, as well as receive an update of the university and hear perspectives from current students. To find out if ONU will be in a city near you, check the alumni website for updates on event listings HERE

Polar Career Services for Alumni provides alumni with many resources including meeting with a professional advisor either in person or via phone conference, post your resume or search for jobs on Polar Careers (powered by Simplicity), attend career fairs, or advice on creating or adjusting your resume.

ONU Logo License Plate: Alumni living in Ohio can purchase a license plate displaying the official Ohio Northern University logo. A portion of the funds generated from each license plate purchase is designated for the general scholarship fund. Special license plate applications are available at all Deputy Registrar license agency locations.

Raabe College of Pharmacy Volunteers: The Pharmacy College is seeking volunteers for the White Coat Ceremony each November on campus, Refer a Student, Interview Days, and Job Shadowing. VOLUNTEER HERE/LEARN MORE

All golden class years (1968 and earlier) are also encouraged to come and celebrate! Save the date for this year’s Alumni Weekend on the weekend of June 1-3, 2018. Click HERE for more details.

ONU Homecoming is an annual opportunity for all alumni to come back and visit campus. Classes that are celebrating their reunions have special events and photos. We especially look forward to welcoming back the classes of ’13, ’08, ’03, ’98, ’93, ’88, 83, ’78, ’73, and ’68. This year Homecoming is on the weekend of October 26-28, 2018.

NCAA After the Game is an excellent resource for alumni who were NCAA student-athletes looking to reconnect, or find a job. The career center promotes connections between former NCAA student-athletes and employers that want to hire them. Former NCAA student-athletes seeking jobs at all levels can post resumes, search for employment and get job seeking advice.  HERE
