On behalf of our faculty and staff, welcome to the Getty College of Arts & Sciences!

With more than 50 nationally acclaimed and accredited majors and concentrations and just as many minors and special programs, from advertising design to applied robotics, from physics to musical theatre, we have what you want. If you supply the motivation, we will supply the opportunities: opportunities for internships, study away and study abroad, hands-on learning, faculty-student research and presentations, lab activities, professional conferences and publications, and exhibitions and concerts. Our students have performed in New Zealand, Spain, Germany, China, Italy, Estonia, Mexico and other countries. They have interned at places like The Washington Center, the Cleveland Clinic, Rudolph Libbe, Honda, and other government and private sector locations. Our students pass their board exams, earning 100 percent on the Ohio Assessment for Educators and more than 95 percent on the NCLEX over the last five years. Our students have received prestigious recognition, including Goldwater Scholarships, National Science Foundation Fellowships and Fulbright Grants. We help you develop talents and skills that prepare you for meaningful careers and that allow you to adapt and grow as the world around you does. 

An A&S student at Ohio Northern doesn’t just learn; she invents. He doesn’t just serve; he makes a difference. Our graduates don’t just succeed; they lead. We are extremely proud of how our alumni are changing the world, one student at a time. I invite you to explore our webpages and visit our campus. If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to ask them. You can contact us or 419-772-3566. I look forward to meeting you at ONU!
