Academic Honor Scholarship Recognition Day Set
Ohio Northern University will conduct its Academic Honor Scholarship Recognition Day on Saturday, Jan. 24. This is the third of four on-campus scholarship evaluation days that attract high-ability applicants. These events involve many on-campus and accepted students who have achieved excellence during their high school careers.
About 220 high school students from Ohio and eight surrounding states are expected to attend the event. The students go through written evaluations and will be interviewed by teams of faculty, staff, current students and alumni.
The day kicks off with registration at 9 a.m. in the Freed Center for the Performing Arts. Dr. Kendall Baker, Ohio Northern University president, and Karen Condeni, vice president of enrollment, will welcome parents during an opening session at 10 a.m. At the same time, Dustin Jarrett, assistant director of admissions, will welcome the students in the English Chapel.
The parents will meet with college deans at 10:30 a.m., followed by a scholarship information session at 11:30 a.m. Students will begin the written evaluations and interviews at 10:30 a.m.
Lunch will commence around 12:45 p.m. in the ONU Sports Center field house. The students and parents will then have the opportunity to tour campus and meet with the student affairs staff. The University estimates that more than 900 accepted students will participate in the four on-campus scholarship days.
