ONU Sees Record Enrollment

Sep 25, 2008
Ohio Northern University has announced a record enrollment for the 2008-09 school year. A total of 3,721 students enrolled this year, compared to 3,603 last year. ONU eclipses the 3,700 mark for the first time in school history, and it marks the ninth record-breaking year out of the last 10.

"We are excited to see students continue to choose ONU as a place to further their education," said Karen Condeni, dean of enrollment. "It shows that ONU is meeting the needs of students while offering what they are looking for in a university."

The number of new undergraduate students is 897, compared to 842 last year. The new class also is the most diverse class yet enrolled: The entire student body has experienced a 35 percent increase in international students, and diverse enrollment is up 22 percent.

For the second consecutive year, ONU was recently ranked No. 2 ranking among Midwest baccalaureate colleges in "America's Best Colleges 2009," which is published annually by "U.S. News & World Report." ONU also was featured as one of the nation's top schools in the new Princeton Review annual college guide, "The Best 368 Colleges, 2009 editions."
