ONU Sees Record Enrollment
"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."
