What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe that Northern Kentucky University is a organized, diverse , and safe campus. I do think that there are some thing's that the school can improve on, but overall it is a really good school. This university also allows students to create their own organizations and they also have a lot of other actives for students to do so that they will be involved on campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think that NKU is a great choice for college. We have so many majors to choose from, small class sizes, and a wonderful staff. There are so many people that I encounter on a daily basis and they are all very passionate about there careers and NKU. Northern Kentucky University is also a safe campus. There has never been a time I felt uncomfortable or unsafe while here. We are growing a tremendous amount and have recently achieved many great goals. The NKU basketball team was eligible to play in the NCAA tournament and got to play the first round. That was a big milestone. We are also adding a building on campus. There are so many great things about NKU and I would recommend this university to anyone.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I was always told crazy stories about college and how your professors don't care about you or if you're not involved you won't know anything, but I can proudly say that after my first year of college, none of that is true! Of course, it's always great to get involved in clubs and organizations but everyone is so friendly on campus, it's super easy to make friends in all classes. Also it's a complete myth that professors don't care about you at NKU because they definitely do! My professors make it their mission to have their students succeed by providing us with extra help when needed, office times to visit them, and millions of accessible resources in the classroom and on campus. I wouldn't want to experience college anywhere else!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

If there were three words that I could use to describe NKU, they would be, "diverse but unified." We have a little bit of everything here, and our diverse cultures help to make us who we are. No matter what a person believes, what a person spends their free time doing or what they identify as, they are accepted and loved here. NKU almost feels as if it's a safe haven, it's a place where you can be yourself without judgement.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The arts program there at NKU is my main intreest, being able to express your musical abilities is everything to me. NKU makes SOTA a priority. They understand that without it we wouldnt be where we are today and I love NKU music is in the air.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, northern Kentucky University is an amazing school. Everyone gets along and are willing to help everyone. The class sizes are great and teachers are always helpful. I recommend this school to everyone. The school and people are very welcoming and they will make sure you have the time of your life. NKU provides free resources such as free books at the lending library and free tutoring sessions as frequently as you may like.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

ACADEMICS: The professors at NKU are decent, they are willing to teach you instead of just lecturing. Class sizes are smaller for the most part so it is easier to get in touch with professors. The people at the advising center care about your standing and are very attentive. CAMPUS LIFE: There is none. The campus is ugly because the buildings are concrete, so the campus nickname is the "Concrete Jungle." The enrollment is 15,000 but only 2,000 commute which results in campus being dead and not much going on. School spirit is rare and there's no student involvement; a lot of that is because of all the commuters. About 90% of people that go to NKU have UK and UofL in their blood. It's also hard to find someone at NKU that actually likes it outside of the greeks. Ask the majority of people why they go to NKU and they'll tell you it's because it's cheap and close. Overall, the life at NKU is comparable to a community college. NKU doesn't have a football team, but the basketball team made the tourney this year. Outside of that, very little going for them in the athletic department. LOCATION: The location is ideal, about five minutes from downtown Cincinnati. On campus and in the immediate surroundings you'll find very little to do, but once you get down to Newport and Cincy you'll eventually find something. REPUTATION: Outside of the Greater Cincinnati area, hardly anyone has heard of this place. The place has no reputation and no prestige outside of the area. PARTY SCENE: Does not exist. There is one bar by campus and an Applebee's. Other than that, you have to go to Cincinnati to drink. NKU is a dry campus and there's no football, so there's no chance to tailgate except for the homecoming basketball game. The Greek life here is laughable. There's no frat or sorority houses, so frats throw venue parties downtown where you have to take a bus and pay $20 to get in, and the 21 to drink rule is in effect. If you're from the Greater Cincinnati area and just want to commute to class and go home, this place is for you. Otherwise, stay far away.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I knew when I first stepped foot on the campus it was my home! The small class sizes are amazing and the teachers and advisors really care about students. The campus is updated often and we are a very inclusive school! The community and education are the highest caliber! Go Norse!!
