    About Ohio Northern University

    Founded in 1871, Ohio Northern is a selective, private, comprehensive university, comprising five colleges (Arts & Sciences, Business Administration, Engineering, Pharmacy and Law) with nationally ranked arts, sciences and professional programs. ONU champions the pursuit of True North. Talented students enter motivated, engage in abundant opportunities, and leave prepared with an education with one of the highest returns on investment in the state. Evidence of Excellence Ohio Northern’s reputation for excellence continues to grow. In just the last few months, ONU has received recognition for teaching quality, high graduation rates, commitment to volunteer service and, most impressively, providing a high return on investment (ROI) to its graduates. Location Our scenic, safe and modern campus rests on nearly 342 acres in the village of Ada, Ohio (population 5,582). Our location provides a quaint small town atmosphere that compliments the friendly environment found on campus, while still offering some of the finest restaurants, shopping and culture the mid west has to offer just a short drive away. Located in northwest Ohio, Ada is 69 miles from Toledo, Ohio, to the north, 80 miles from Columbus, Ohio, to the south and 15 miles to Lima, Ohio to the west. Research Don't wait for graduate school to get involved with cutting-edge research. At ONU, undergraduate research is a pillar upon which future success is built. Our students partner with faculty on research that expands the horizons of human understanding, and our annual Student Research Colloquium is a showcase that attracts researchers from across the country.
