What is your overall opinion of this school?

Being an online-only student I am not much of an authority on-campus life. Living around 4 hours away, I have not even visited the campus. My review is strictly for their online programs, which are becoming a very important aspect of higher education as more students are forced to work full-time while attending school. I am also a non-traditional student. As someone who holds down a full-time job in a field unrelated to my major, a father, and a husband a 100% online experience is a must. Previously I had attended a local community college and tried my hand at another university through their online program. To say I was unimpressed is an understatement. There was little support from advisers, the professors seemed uninterested in students they could not meet in person, and the requirements for the degree were not clearly stated upfront. I was apprehensive about attending a school that I had heard little about, but they offered the program I was looking for and I decided it was worth a chance. I am one semester away from graduating now and the entire process has been positive. The requirements for the program were clearly laid out before I committed to anything, the advisers have answered emails often within minutes of my sending them, instructors have been very clear on what is expected, and there have been no surprises. My only complaint is with the availability of online classes. Each semester their history department offers a wide variety of classes for on-campus students. Many of these classes, which dealt with specific topics in history, I would have enjoyed and I believe would have enhanced my knowledge on pertinent subjects. Unfortunately, many of these classes were offered in class only and those that were available online filled up quickly. I would have loved to have the opportunity to take more of these classes. From what I understand, most colleges are in this situation but it seems to me that if you are offering a 100% online degree all available classes should be offered to the students in the program. Hopefully, this is something that will get better with time. Overall I highly recommend Northern Kentucky University for anyone interested in a 100% online program in history. I have never felt that my education has suffered because I was unable to attend classes on campus nor have I ever felt like a second class student because I was not on campus. The instructors do their jobs and grade most assignments within days along with useful feedback. My adviser has gone above and beyond with the help she has provided. Often she has spent an hour or more on the phone with me while signing up for classes. The financial aid office is often maligned at universities since they are the perceived keepers of the money, but I can honestly say that they never did anything that I could complain about. The university seems to have a good thing going, at least as far as their history program goes, and I will be proud to have graduated from NKU.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, NKU is a great place to be. I feel that I have flourished here, not just as a student but as a person. While it may not be perfect, the university has provided me with more than enough means to succeed in my area of study. It has also given me the opportunity to branch out and find more areas that spark my interest.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think that Northern Kentucky University is truly a unique place to further your education. Students and staff are very open and accepting of everyone as individuals. Clubs, Greek Life, and sports are all very important. Students are highly encouraged to get involved. To add to this, there is always something going on campus. Job fairs, ice skating rinks, free food and drinks, pop-up drag shows, dance parties, and more!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of Northern Kentucky would have to be over the top excellent. I will be a freshman this coming fall and I have never been so excited for something in my life. Northern Kentucky is extremely organized and on top of things. They always go above and beyond on helping with whoever is struggling. No one struggles alone. You have SO MANY organizations to choose from to get involved and thats something that caught my eye when I applied. Northern Kentucky caught my eye in so many ways while applying and during my college visit I couldn't be more excited to be a norse this coming fall!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great school. I feel a lot safer here than I did at UC. The professors are always there to help and very accommodating if you misunderstood directions on an assignment. The food on campus is great as well. I like that there is a large variety so there is something for everyone.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I'm a freshman this year, and from what I have learned is there are so many opportunities. Multiple clubs on campus and you can make your own with your friends. Teachers and advisors are always there to help and answer questions. The facilities are amazing and have everything you could possibly need. Housing is a little smaller than expected, but that’s okay.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really enjoy NKU! Overall, it is a nice learning environment and it is easy to communicate with pretty much everyone. Everyone is so friendly it really doesn't make you feel like you are at school. The campus is not to big but also not to small. There are a few newer buildings and they are all very nice! For the academic portion of the school it is pretty nice how you register for class by seniority (senior's go first and freshman go last) but usually there are more then one section of the same class so the freshman can sometime get into the course that is needed for them also!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a very big school with a lot of different classes and majors to offer. Most professors here try to work with you, with the exception of a few. The difficulty of the classes, I would say are medium to difficult, especially once you start to take bio 300 to 400 classes. But overall, it's not a bad school.
