Next step: project engineer at Marathon Petroleum

Gregarious and possessing a great sense of humor, Matt Dinnen is a person of many talents and interests. He enrolled at Ohio Northern University because he wanted to be able to explore all the facets of his personality in a supportive environment.

At ONU, Dinnen majored in mechanical engineering and became super-involved in campus life.

He pursued his passion for music, playing guitar, piano, drums, and participating in the University Singers. He grew in his faith as a member of Northern Christian Fellowship and a Soldiers Bible Study Leader. He developed his people skills as a Resident Director. He honed his mathematical and logical mindset building robotic football players. And, a natural on camera, he showcased his outgoing personality as a host on “The Roar.”

Dinnen's diverse campus experiences–plus two internships-enabled him to graduate with a stand-out resume. “I became involved in so many different organizations and grew in so many areas,” he says. “It really diversified my capabilities and helped me get ready for the future relationships I will form after ONU.”
