FAMILY AND SIBLINGS WEEKEND IS SEPT. 20-22.

Join us for a fun-filled weekend at ONU! Family and Siblings Weekend is a chance to experience the social life of an ONU student. ONU students are encouraged to bring their family members to campus for one, two or all three days! The weekend is designed as a self-guided tour with admission to most events being free; those that do have a cost are affordable. Siblings can even stay with their ONU siblings to see what it is like to live in campus housing. Family and Siblings Weekend is a collaboration hosted by Student Senate, Residence Life, the Student Planning Committee, Greek Life and Northern Christian Fellowship. Registration is free and the sign-up link can be found here. All registered families will receive periodic email updates about each event.
