What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If I were to go back in time as a high school senior, knowing what I know now, I would definitely make a bigger effort to study hard and get better grades. I would ask for tutoring or help from teachers in classes I had difficulties. I would also be more involved in groups and community based organizations. My first year of college would have been much easier if I had made my senior year of high school more of a priority and I would have been further along by now in gaining a successful career.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Person's who shouldn't attend are those that have not desire to succeed.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

We are a very artistically-oriented school with the top science center in the Midwest. We are also known for our soccer and basketball teams (both men's and women's teams).

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If I were to go back to my senior year and give myself advice about college, there are several tips I would share. First, I would tell myself to make friends as soon as possible when I get to campus. The best way to adjust to college life is to put yourself out there and meet new people - chances are they're feeling the same way you are about the whole situation. Second, I would also tell myself to be ready for roommates who don't exactly see the way I do- I still have to live with them regardless of my feelings toward them. A final piece of advice I would share would be to take every opportunity that presents itself to me on campus. Learn new things, enjoy the little time I have there, and get to know people who can help me succeed. I would push myself to take classes which were more suited to my interests and work as hard as possible to get good grades. These tidbits of information, among others, would be the advice I would share with my high school senior self.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Work hard, don't slack, and takes things seriously. You can't go back and fix your GPA, try your hardest, push yourself, and you'll be surprised at what you can accomplish. Never say you can't do something, because you can.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone looks for small classes, caring teachers, but mainly a commuter campus

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

I don't really know, but to me I feel it's strongest area is that of being just right in every area.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

The first advice I would give myself is never stop, even if you have no idea what you want to end up doing. And, I might have tried to talk myself into going away from home for college to broaden my worldly experiences even more.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would advise myself to not worry about what other poeple think of me. Most of these poeple you wil never see again in life and are therefore insignificant in the decisions that you make to better yourself. I would also advise myself not to take out so many student loans but instead to work and pay cash for school. Student loans are horrible on a recent graduate that does not make a lot of money. It's out right depressing. With all of this being said, keep your head up and keep striving for what you want out of life. Let no one hold you back. Speak positive statements about life.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would have liked to tell myself to study a little harder. If i would have studied a little harder maybe money for school would have came easier and picking schools also would have been easier. I also would have loved to tell myself to try a little harder and explain how important school really is. I think i took it as a joke and never tried to attempt to get extra money or even loans. I just blew it off. I just wished I would have taken it more seriously than I did. If i would have studied a little harder and thought about school more I would definetly be better off than i am now. I wish i really could go back, life would be easier.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

I think anyone could attend Northern. It is a great school for anyone. They offer the very lowest classes, if you aren't prepared for college to the very highest classes if you wanna reach your dreams. The price is also very afforodable and that makes it very conveniant.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The worst thing about Nothern Kentucky University is the prerequisites. I do not enjoy taking literature classes to be a radiologic technologist. I think you should be able to focus more on your major. It is focused more on getting your prerequisites done than anything.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

In highschool, I did not know what I wanted to do after I graduated. I looked at my various interests, such as art, theatre and literature. As I questioned what to do with my life, I questioned what college to attend. I decided upon NKU because it advertised how well it worked with students who were 'Undecided/Undeclaired'-which is exactly what I would be entering college as. Going to NKU gave me the chance to figure out who I was and what I wanted to do. If I were asked to make this descion again, I would once again say yes. The atmosphere at Northern Kentucky University has helped me find myself through the classes I've taken, the professors I've had, and the friends I've met. I have found myself at NKU, and would not trade my found identity as a Costume Designer for anything.

What's unique about your campus?

I believe that the best thing about NKU would be how helpful the faculty is. If you are struggling either acemically or in yout personal life, they will do what they can to help you through.

Describe the students at your school.

The perfect amount of students to feel like you have a chance to be one on one with your teachers, as well as allowing you to get to know your peers better.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Be ready for some big changes. You're going to grow up quickly and be treated more like an adult than you ever have before. You're responcible for all that is going to come your way, but don't be afraid to ask for help. Take time to figure out what you want, but do it as quickly as possible! DON'T FORGET TO SAVE MONEY, even if it seems impossible. Believe in yourself, you can do anything.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

I really enjoy the professors at my school, as well as how welcoming everyone is.

The tuition continues to increase, yet I am not benefiting from any of the changes that occur.
