Do you know what event is coming soon? We’ll give you a few CLUES! It’s a celebration… for someone big and fluffy… on a very special day!

That’s right, Klondike’s birthday is right around the corner! The ONU Polar Bear, Klondike, celebrates his birthday on Tuesday, March 16 and we want you to be prepared to celebrate ALL Klondikes with us! It has been 150 years of ONU and 99 years of Klondike, so let’s celebrate them all!


To participate in Klondike’s Birthday you’ll need some supplies!

•Register HERE for FREE!

•You’ll receive the following supplies to help you celebrate: a polar bear paw print button, a birthday treat, and party decorations!

•Follow @ONUAlumni Facebook to participate virtually as we reveal special birthday clues, and share how you are celebrating at home!

Bake a cake, draw a picture, send Klondike a birthday card, or celebrate Klondike some other way! Who knows, maybe there is a surprise in store if you tag us @ONUAlumni or @OhioNorthernUniversity!


Make sure to join the party as we celebrate the mighty Klondike!


While we’re sharing our #PolarBearPride, let’s show our support to current students by giving $20 to the Northern Fund. For 99 years the polar bear has embodied the strength, resilience and prestige that is an ONU education. In conjunction with Klondike’s Birthday, consider a gift to the Northern Fund. Northern Fund gifts are an investment to the student’s overall experience, like our beloved mascot. The Northern Fund supports campus improvements, academic programs, student life, faculty research and financial aid.
