ONU students to help area residents with tax preparation

Volunteer income tax assistance - VITA

Taxpayers in Hardin and surrounding counties can find free income tax assistance from Ohio Northern University business students through Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA).

The VITA Program offers free tax help to persons who generally make $54,000 or less who need assistance in preparing their tax returns. As part of this program, ONU students receive training and become IRS-certified to help prepare basic and intermediate tax returns and identify special credits such as the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), Child Tax Credit and Credit for the Elderly.

Electronic sports coming to ONU in the fall

Esports is the newest, fastest-growing trend to hit collegiate athletics

 Ohio Northern University is launching an esports (electronic sports) program in fall 2019.

This initiative continues ONU’s emphasis on offering students well-rounded, high-impact learning experiences that allow them to pursue both their professional and personal areas of interest.

Esports will continue that focus in much the same way students have opportunities to participate in co-curricular activities such as intercollegiate and intramural athletics, the arts, and other pursuits that add to the richness of the college experience, expand students’ horizons and provide opportunities to interact with other students who have similar interests.
