Life Outside the Classroom

Ohio Northern University works to afford each and every student an environment for academic success. However, this encompasses more than life inside the classroom. Much of your student’s time while enrolled at ONU will be spent outside of the classroom (residence halls, libraries, co-curricular involvement, etc.).

Ohio Northern has established policies and guidelines that outline expected behavior and conduct on campus. The ONU Student Handbook, which contains the Student Code of Conduct, can be found on our website. Here you will find policies pertaining to everything from life inside the residence halls to governing procedures for student organizations. ONU’s policies pertaining to alcohol, drugs and disorderly conduct, to name a few, also are contained in the Student Code of Conduct.

In August, your student will receive a required, online training-course called “Think About It” that details the importance of making sound choices (including the dangers and risks associated with alcohol, drugs and sexual misconduct) while transitioning into collegiate life. This training will be sent to their ONU email account; it must be completed BEFORE your student arrives on campus. Please be in communication with your student about their timely completion of this course.

Be on the lookout for the August Newsletter, which will contain additional information about the transition of your student to Ohio Northern University and “Life Outside the Classroom.”
