Opportunities and Resources
The Getty College of Arts and Sciences and Ohio Northern University provide many resources to assist you in achieving personal and academic success. A partial list is below.
The Getty College of Arts and Sciences offers both weekly and as-needed tutoring sessions for select Arts and Sciences courses.
Students share the results of their research through presentation and publication. Visit this page to learn of opportunities to present your research to others.
Your 21 representatives on the Getty College of Arts and Sciences Student Advisory Board meet six times a year to advise the dean about student perspectives on college issues and encourage college unity. The representatives welcome your input and would be happy to raise your concerns at an upcoming meeting.
The Ohio Northern Student Research Colloquium celebrates academic achievement among Northern's students of all disciplines by providing them the opportunity to discuss their research with and demonstrate their expertise to other Northern students and faculty and visitors to ONU’s campus.
We aid all ONU students and recent graduates as they seek to identify and apply for prestigious scholarships, fellowships, and other competitive academic prizes. While any student is welcome to stop by for assistance, only those with high GPAs are generally eligible for the most competitive awards.
The College of Arts and Sciences has designed courses that will help you transition from your high school successes to a college student on the path toward graduation. These Transitions Experience (TREX) courses will help you understand how to think critically, reason analytically, and make connections between disciplines—all skills needed to be successful in college.
