Bethany Kludt: Student Snapshot – Ohio Northern University Edition

Bethany Kludt is a highly motivated and successful young lady who is currently enrolled at Ohio Northern University (ONU). She knows that getting what you want isn’t enough, but rather, doing the right and best kind of work possible in the attainment of your goals holds the key to true and optimal satisfaction. For a young person, she has led an extraordinarily accomplished life. She was born in Dayton, Ohio and has lived in Miamisburg, Ohio for many years. She has been active in a variety of activities from an early age.

She is now an accomplished bicycle motocross (BMX) racer and began her experience with the sport at the age of 4 years old. She began gymnastics at the age of 3 and continued that sport until middle school. She also has years of practice in golf, cheering, and diving, all of which she played at the high-school level. Since enrolling at ONU, she has not put the brakes on her determination to stay active and involved with the kinds of activities that she finds fun, positive and worthwhile.

She has maintained part-time employment throughout her educational course at ONU while also staying active in activities completely outside of work or school (I.E., becoming a member of the National Physique Committee in 2014 and participating in its bikini division competitions).

If you’re interested in attending college, ONU might be the perfect fit for you. Here’s some basic information about the university:

  • It was founded in 1871 and is located in Ada, Ohio
  • It was ranked second among regional colleges in the Midwest by the U.S. News & World Report
  • It is generally considered ‘more selective’ than other colleges or universities.

As an ONU student, Bethany Kludt provides a great example of someone who has learned to balance the aspects of work, school, and extra-curricular activities.


Bethany Kludt: Animal Shelters 101

Bethany Kludt is a successful student who is currently enrolled in college and working towards her bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) degree. She leads the kind of lifestyle that beckons for a trusted four-legged friend. This is where Bo comes in – her adorable Chihuahua. She enjoys spending time with Bo whether it be in the form of a nice walk or a relaxing reprieve at home.

She is committed to not only her training and successful career in the professional healthcare industry, but also to her daily responsibilities that involve the balancing of work and school.

She believes in a variety of good causes, including that of animal welfare. In this post, we’ll take a quick look at animal shelters and how they may or may not differ depending on their ‘type’.

The most common types of animal shelters in the United States include:

  1. Traditional: These are generally known as ‘Humane Societies’ and most-often take animals from public areas. Animals at these shelters are put up for adoption and may be re-homed directly from the facility. These shelters are run by part-time and full-time paid staff and are mostly funded through donations, adoption fees, and grants. Humane societies are also increasingly offering free or low-cost spay and neutering services to the communities in which they are present.
  2. Control Facilities: Often known as ‘municipal control facilities’ or ‘pet repositories’, these shelters are run purely through the government and are completely funded by taxpayer dollars. They follow local, state, and federal laws and codes and are an extension of the enforcement arm that is ‘animal control’. Some pet repositories allow adoptions; however, many animals are first transferred to rescue organizations (many of which were founded specifically to take animals out of control facilities).

Bethany Kludt is an animal lover.
