Many senior student-athletes weren't afforded the privilege of completing their careers

By Bud Denega
 The COVID-19 pandemic unceremoniously ended a couple winter sports and cut short the spring sports season. Many senior student-athletes weren't afforded the privilege of completing their careers in the orange and black. 

In an effort to remedy the sports void at ONU and honor the athletes that weren't able to finish their respective seasons, here's a synopsis of those teams' seasons.

The Ohio Northern wrestling team was set to send three to the NCAA Championships in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

Ohio Northern University shares guidance on using campus outdoor facilities with community during stay-at-home order

Under Gov. DeWine’s Stay-at-Home Order, residents are encouraged to get outside for exercise and fresh air.

If families use campus resources for this purpose (the Green Monster and other walkways), it is permitted to stay together with members of your family, but please stay a minimum of six feet from anyone else. Please see further details and expectations below.

University VITA program continues to serve clients

VITA program offers free tax help to persons who generally make $55,000 or less who need assistance in preparing returns

In accordance with coronavirus precautions, Ohio Northern University has closed buildings to the public and transitioned to remote instruction, with most students returning to their homes.

The university’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program continues to serve clients, but preparing and reviewing returns have necessarily slowed down.

If your returns have already been prepared, they will be reviewed as soon as possible, and someone will be in touch with you to confirm.

If you have not yet had your returns prepared, there are two ways ONU VITA can still help.

All ONU instruction moved into alternative, remote delivery mode, including labs

Students will move out of the residence halls by Sunday, March 22, at 5 p.m

The following is from the Ohio Northern University website:
