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.

ONU law college seeks auction items

For public interest auction Feb. 8

The Ohio Northern Pettit College of Law’s annual public interest auction is set for noon, Friday, Feb. 8, in the large court room in the Law College.

"We are seeking donations for the auction,” said Jane Ward, director of law career services.  

"The auction provides funds to help ONU law students with their living expenses as they volunteer their time over the summer providing legal services to the underprivileged and those who would otherwise not be able to have needed legal assistance,” she said.

We are asking for donations of items that can be purchased at the live auction, the silent auction, and a raffle.

Carol Channing - a Polar Bear at heart

She performed the first-ever concert in the Freed Center, April 27, 1991

This note from the ONU Facebook:
"Even though Carol Channing wasn't an ONU alumna, she will always be a Polar Bear in our hearts.

"Ms. Channing performed the first concert at ONU's Freed Center for the Performing Arts on April 27, 1991, and absolutely knocked it out of the park.

Apart from her obvious talent, she was an incredibly kind and thoughtful person, even sending us personal Christmas cards after her one visit to Ada. Thank you, Ms. Channing!"

Ms. Channing died at 12:31 a.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 15, 2019, at home in Rancho Mirage, California, of natural causes.
