ONU intends to return to full on-campus experience in the fall

“We are confident that fall 2021 will look more like normal campus operations for many reasons. Our successful response to implementing in-person education this academic year is one reason for that confidence."

Ohio Northern University announced on its Facebook that it intends to return to a full on-campus experience in the fall.

The announcement stated that the decision was made by relying on public health guidance and working with state and local officials to pursue learning, living, and working on campus as close to, if not at, pre-pandemic levels.

Continuing:  “The university is committed to providing students with an optimal educational environment and looks forward to returning to a traditional semester calendar as well as continuing in-person learning, on-campus living and campus events and activities.

“Our priorities are to keep students, faculty and staff safe and learning at the highest level.

“We are confident that fall 2021 will look more like normal campus operations for many reasons. Our successful response to implementing in-person education this academic year is one reason for that confidence.

“We implemented robust safety protocols for cleaning, testing, tracing, quarantining and isolating that have allowed us to remain effectively operational, and we are continuing to rely on our faculty and staff in pharmacy and in other allied health fields for their expertise to provide the latest science-based knowledge.

“We also have benefited greatly from the high level of compliance to these safety measures by our students, faculty and staff. In short, our current safeguards have worked well.

"Plans for fall semester may have to be adjusted as this health crisis evolves and as updated information becomes available pertaining to state and federal guidance and regulations. As we have all year, we’ll need to be patient, flexible, and resilient in order to protect ourselves and each other and sustain ONU’s health, safety and academic success."
