Ohio Northern University’s Baja Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) team finished first overall at the 2012 Winter Baja competition Feb. 18, 2012, in Lake Linden, Mich.
Hosted by Michigan Technological University, the 2012 Winter Baja featured 48 cars from schools such as Virginia Tech, the Univiversity of Michigan, and South Dakota School of Mines.

Ohio Northern University will recognize Tuition Freedom Day on Feb. 22 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the McIntosh Activities Room. Tuition Freedom Day is the hypothetical day where the University stops running on tuition dollars and begins to run solely by donations from outside parties.
Tuition covers only 65 percent of ONU’s operating costs for the year. The University relies on donations from alumni, faculty, staff, students, parents and supporters of Ohio Northern to cover the rest. Tuition Freedom Day was created to educate students about the generosity of donors.
