  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)

What Students Are Saying

3.75 Average Rating
I love this school. It's small, so you basically know everyone in your grade. And, it's not in a big city, so it's a very safe campus.
Ohio Northern is a small school in a small town. The campus is nice, and easy to walk to everything. The programs are good and most professors are good and accessible.
Anna from Hilliard, OH
Great college in a small quiet town. The professors are amazing at their jobs and are very personable. I definitely recommend checking out Ohio Northern University as a choice for future students.
Jessica from Farmersville, OH
The best student tours. The professors took me into all of the labs that I would ever have a class in. My tour was one on one with a professor.
Morgan from Columbia Station, OH
Ohio Northern University has a small town feel, which is perfect for me, and the overall community just makes you feel so welcomed. I will be playing softball and all the coaches there are just as welcoming and great as the students, professors and staff.
Alexis from Batavia, OH
ONU is a great school! I highly recommend it for anyone who would enjoy a small, tight-knit community, with overall good people. Go Polar Bears!
