New Student Orientation
Welcome New Polar Bears!
Your new journey at Ohio Northern University is about to begin.
Welcome Weekend begins on Thursday, August 21 and ends on Sunday, August 24.
Welcome Weekend is a required event for new students and serves as a comprehensive introduction to nearly everything ONU offers you.
Throughout Welcome Weekend, you will meet other new students, facutly, and staff while engaging in more than 20 events on campus. You'll be led in small groups with upper-class ONU students known as Orientation Leaders (OLs). Your OL will share the ins and outs of being an ONU student and answer any questions as you prepare to start classes on Monday. Whether you are living on campus or commuting from home, Welcome Weekend is essential for your transition to ONU.
Family members are encouraged to attend Welcome Weekend on Thursday, August 21. Family members can be invovled in move-in day activities (if the student is residing on campus), the family meetings in the afternoon as well as convocation and the farewell dinner. Programming for family members concludes at 6 p.m.
