ONU and The Washington Center
Ohio Northern has had a strong relationship with The Washington Center for Internships and Academic Seminars (TWC) for nearly two decades. ONU faculty have served on the National Liaison Advisory Board for a number of years. Under the leadership of its current president, Michael Smith, BA ’68, an ONU history alumnus, TWC has witnessed exponential growth. This is especially true in regard to TWC’s procurement of outside funding. TWC received three separate $1 million gifts in 2007. This helped the Center establish a new headquarters as well as build a new residential facility to house its future interns. More than 20 ONU students have attended the Democratic and Republican National Convention programs in the past two election cycles.
Students from virtually any major are able to participate in TWC programming. For instance, more than 15 majors and three colleges (A&S, Pharmacy, and Business Administration) from ONU have had participants in TWC programming. Our students have enjoyed high-profile placements and real-world experience that have helped them in their post-graduate lives.
