It is a joy to go to classes as well as having the freedom provided by the smaller size student base

I wanted to attend a small college because I am interested in an education not a "party school" and that is exactly what ONU offers. I enjoy meeting new friends who have the same interests as I do but also enjoy the diverse campus and meeting students of different cultures. I like the way the President of ONU is active and seen and well known by all. It's a very family friendly school. I have had an amazing first 4 years and am looking forward to finishing my educational experience at ONU.
