Volunteer opportunities

Our alumni are our best ambassadors. You are living proof of the promise of an ONU education, and no one is better suited to help advance the University. Here are a few easy ways you can volunteer on behalf of ONU.

Refer a high school student – Every year, students visit and apply to ONU because of the recommendation of an alumna or alumnus.

Put a Polar Bear to work — Stay informed of job openings and internships at your place of work, and share that information with Polar Careers.

Participate in B.E.A.R.S – Building Energetic Alumni Resources for Students is a volunteer program for admissions that asks alumni to assist at college fairs and in a letter-writing campaign.

Join the Alumni Board – Seats on the board are filled as needed and require an application and approval.

Share your story – Did you make a gift to ONU and want to inspire others to do the same? Have you, or someone you know, accomplished great things? Let us know, and your story might show up on our website or in a University publication.

Come back to Ada – We are always happy to see you.

Get social – An easy way to get involved is to engage with ONU social media channels. Like our Facebook page (facebook.com/OhioNorthern), follow us on Twitter (@ohionorthern) and Instagram (instagram.com/ohionorthern), or binge watch our videos on YouTube (youtube.com/onupolarbears). And don’t forget to share ONU content within your circles to help introduce new people to ONU.
