Come back to Ohio Northern University for Alumni Weekend! This is a special weekend dedicated to our Golden Years Alumni (all classes celebrating 50 years or more).

The Class of 1966 will have a special celebration dinner on Friday, June 3rd for their 50th Class Year Reunion. All other classes celebrating 55, 60, 65 and 70 years will also have celebrations at the reception before the Alumni Association Luncheon on Saturday, June 4. Even if it is not a reunion year we encourage all alumni from the classes of 1966 and earlier to join us in celebrating ONU from your days!

We would like to thank the members of the Class of 1966 Reunion Planning Committee for all of their work on planning the weekend and for reaching out to classmates to encourage attendance.

Most importantly, we know that you will have a fun-filled weekend. We look forward to having you return to campus for alumni programs, events and a chance to meet with President Dan DiBiasio and his wife, Chris Burns-DiBiasio.
