Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Our school is best know for the small class sizes and the cost of tuition. Tuition is very inexpensive compared to the surrounding public universities.

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

I would tell students to first decide a school that best fits them and not a school that their friends go to. Things to consider when choosong the best college are making sure that college has the major you are seeking, and if you are undecided make sure there are a very large variety of majors. Also consider what class size best accomodates your learning style. It is also important for the student to research thier field of study and make sure the college provides some type of excellence in that field. To make the most of your college experience definitely get involved in campus organizations but not too much where it becomes overwhelming. Also make as many friends as you can because having a support system while in college makes it that much easier to make it through your college experience. I would tell parents to make sure that the college their child is picking offers a numerous amounts of scholarships and other forms of financial aid to make your burden easier.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I would have know that the parking prices were ridiculous and that there was no way for me to graduate in four years. The way the classes are set up and the fact that every student had to declare a minor only makes it that much harder to graduate on time.

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

Visit colleges more than for a couple of hours, sit in on a class in your field, talk to some of the students, get the full picture before settling down, and live in campus at least your first year!

What kind of person should not attend this school?

In my opinion a person straight out of college should come here before they attend a bigger university.

Quiet, urban setting with all kinds of racial backgrounds and friendly students.

When you're looking for the right college, make sure its the right setting for you. I've been on so many college trips and all the ones I've been to were not for me. When I came to NKU I realized this is where I wanted to be. But I feel the two important things of making your college life a better experience is to definitely interact with on campus events and activities, and going to finanicial aid to look at other scholarships. It's very important that you interact on campus because that is how you will meet more friends and it would also be good for you and your resume. If you just sit in your dorm all day, campus life would definitely not be fun. Finally scholarships. When it comes to that, it's good to go to the finanicial aid office and talk to them regularly because they are there to help you find money. You don't want to graduate from school paying back a huge loan, you want to pay back less as possible. I've already had that situation once, now I go to the finanicial aid office often.

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

The worst thing would be just the parking on campus because it's very limited to students since we've had so much stuff being built on campus on. Plus how much parking is.

NKU is in a metrpolitan environment and has a large student population, yet still maintains small class sizes.

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

Find a school with the right class size that you want but also a school that is very diverse. Diversity will show you new cultures and you will meet different people who can change your perspective on life.

What's unique about your campus?

The diversity. There are around 15,000 students. These students come from 43 states, several countries and different backgrounds.
