Alumni Volunteer Opportunities
ONU recognizes that there are many ways for alumni to give back to their alma mater and volunteering is definitely one of them! Please consider sharing your love of Northern with perspective students, current students, or fellow alumni in your local area. Below are just a few examples of volunteer opportunities available to ONU alumni.
Alumni Club Volunteers:
Alumni Clubs are currently located in Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Dayton and Washington D.C. The clubs depend and exist only if there are dedicated volunteers to help plan local events. If there is not a club in your local area and you are interested in starting a new club, please let us know. VOLUNTEER HERE.
ONU College Campus Volunteers:
Alumni may choose to interview perspective pharmacy students, speak in a class on your area of expertise, or judge a student competition in any one of our colleges; Arts & Science, Business, Engineering, Law and Pharmacy. Let us know where you are interested in volunteering and we will connect you with a representative from that college. VOLUNTEER HERE.
Alumni Board Volunteers:
Alumni Board positions are filled as needed and requires an application and board approval in order to become a board member. Nominate someone you know or let us know if you are interested and we will begin the process. NOMINATE HERE.
B.E.A.R.S. (Building Energetic Alumni Resources for Students) Volunteers:
Alumni volunteers are welcome and encouraged to help Ohio Northern recruit perspective students by representing ONU at college fairs or write note cards to perspective students. For more information on the B.E.A.R.S. program request information HERE.
Pick One: Recommend a Polar Recruit
Every year students visit and apply to ONU due to the recommendation of an alumna, alumnus, parent, faculty, staff member or current student. What if each of us recommended at least one high school junior or senior a year? For more information CLICK HERE!
Are you in a position to hire ONU students for a job or internship or know of an opening in your organization that could be posted for current students to apply? Interested in mentoring a current student, or participating in mock interviews? Encourage your company to attend ONU career fairs and conduct on-campus recruiting. Alumni networking is key to placing ONU students in their future careers. Visit CAREER SERVICES for more information on how you can make a difference for our young polar bears!
Alumni Feature Stories for Alumni Journal:
Do you have an interesting story to tell, or professional experience to share? Do you know another alum who would have an interesting story to tell? Please let us know and we will add to our alumni story bank, which will be a list of possible alumni features for the Alumni Journal. While there are no guarantees that all stories will be used, you will be contacted by a member of Communications and Marketing for an interview or additional information when your story will be featured.
