18 years – 110 flights of stairs – ONU still remembers 9/11 in a big way

9/11 Stair Climb – Roughly 100 students participated in the 9/11 Stair Climb, as well as local first responders and veterans

FROM THE ONU WEBSITE - On the evening of Sept. 11, 2019, Dial-Roberson Stadium was a sight to behold. Dozens of people made their way up and down the stadium steps over and over.

They marched for the victims, they marched for the first responders, they marched for those who answered the call to defend their homeland and our freedom.

The 9/11 Stair Climb, as it has come to be known, began as an ROTC effort, started by recent graduate Bryce Bouman, BS ’19, but this year marked the first time that it took place on ONU’s campus as an organized public event, hosted by the newly re-established Ohio Northern Veterans Organization (ONVO).
