Zobrist helps make ONU official educational partner of Chicago Cubs
Olivet Nazarene University (ONU) will be the official education partner of the Chicago Cubs, represented by second baseman and former ONU student Ben Zobrist.
“We could not be more thrilled to announce this partnership with the Cubs organization and to find such an outstanding partnership ambassador in Olivet alumnus Ben Zobrist,” ONU Vice President for Strategic Expansion Ryan Spittal said. “Ben is a man of faith and an outstanding example of a friend and teammate, and we are so glad to have him as an ambassador for Olivet and this partnership.”
Zobrist, who spent three years at ONU as a student-athlete and won a World Series ring last year with the Kansas City Royals, will promote the school's graduate and continuing studies programs through a series of advertisements.
“I would not be where I am today without Olivet and the education the university provided,” Zobrist said. “With the flexibility and variety in programs offered by Olivet’s School of Graduate and Continuing Studies, now everyone can advance in both career and life by letting Olivet take them from where they are now to where they want to be.”
The school has more than 150 locations that includes partnerships with Hong Kong, China, the Czech Republic, South Africa, Dubai, the United Arab Emirates and Israel.
