What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great school to earn a quality education. They offer a huge variety of programs and extracurricular activities. It is a very diverse school and is very respectful of other peoples faiths, cultures, and hobbies. Their advising could be better, but their programs are well put together.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Northern Kentucky University has made great strides over the past few years and is continuing to make "igniting your spark" even easier. As a commuter, I felt that by not living on campus I would be missing out on many opportunities; however, I feel welcomed and encouraged every time I step onto campus. The campus is always being updated/renovated, which can be stressful at times (especially when it comes to parking), but it has definitely created better resources for students. There is a wide variety of food options on campus, including a brand new Steak and Shake! What I love about NKU is the many events held on campus. There is always something going on and just about anyone can find their niche around here. Overall, I've had a positive experience both educationally and recreationally.

I LOVE Northern Kentucky University and have never regretted my choice of choosing this college. I feel like I have a voice and all of my professors truly care about me. Their Greek Life is fantastic and is incredibly Panhellenic and supportive of all.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Northern Kentucky Univerisity, were the Norse Nation is alive. Where the people are social, but stay in clicks. Where the opportunities are endless, but must be found. Where sports aren't big and recretianol sport is. Where the sorority life plays a huge role throughout. Where the faculty and staff push for your better education. Where the weekends are dull and boring. Where the activities are categorized and often aren't integrated. Where the food is good ,be the meals plans are complicated. Where the atmosphere is there for an amazing campus but you have to find your place there.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The campus is in a prime location logistically. Why is that important? Well, simply, it gives many opportunities. To the north is Cincinnati, which is a city that boast industries like Proctor and Gamble and General Electric. Throughout the year, NKU hosts these companies to do lectures and in-services for their students. It opens the door for employment and internships with major corporations. If Healthcare is your thing, NKU has outstanding program. As I am a nursing student, I was worried that I might not get the same experiences because I didn't belong to a major research university that was attached to a magnet hospital. NKU's reputation has afforded them access to do clinical rounds at Children's Hospital (the best children's hospital in the world) and UC.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

NKU is a really great school because it offers plenty of opportunities for everyone. The size of the school is large and diverse enough so that it is likely that you'll find whatever your looking for in terms of extracurriculars, academics, sports, friends, and more. The campus is beautiful and well-kept, and all of the facilities are practical and welcoming. If you'd like to study abroad, NKU has an amazing variety of opportunities as well. NKU is a school that listens to its students and adjusts itself accordingly.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Northern Kentucky University is the largest school in the area with the most diversity, artistry, and community that I've seen. I went to a predominantly white high school with very conservative teachers. Once I came to NKU, I was suddenly met with a tapestry of different ethnic backgrounds, different languages, different sexualities, and different religions. Although I may not be a part of the LGBTQ+ community, I am a strong supporter of it. Any LGBTQ+ students at NKU do not have to worry about harassment or discrimination. After two years, I've yet to meet a student who agreed with such things. Professors, particularly those associated with the arts, are always open and accepting of students with lifestyles different from their own. I remember on the first day of my theatre class, the professor asked us which pronouns we preferred so he would not be offending anyone when he referred to them. The biggest downside to the campus I can think of is that once every semester, a branch of the Westboro Baptist Church comes to protest on our grounds. The campus believes in freedom of speech, no matter who's speaking. However, once the protestors leave, the LGBTQ+ community comes to the place where the protestors were and draw chalk murals filled with messages of love and acceptance. Some even write messages contradicting what Westboro had been saying; things like: "God LOVES you, for He made you in His image." I, personally, am not religious, but seeing that always brings a tear to my eye after having to walk by such loud hate-speakers. Those days when the murals are drawn are always special, no matter your sexuality or gender identity. Despite what sometimes happens on campus, I feel NKU's sense of acceptance, tolerance, and community is what pulls it through. In my eyes, it's what makes me happy I chose it as the place to receive my higher education.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe Northern Kentucky University is an excellent University where student thrive both inside the classrooms and outside. Numerous organizations are available for students to join and if not students can create their own! Residents who stay on campus have a variety of resident halls to chose from and develop friendships through various activities. Like all colleges, Northern Kentucky University is a college who is growing and on the rise!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of Northern Kentucky University is that it is that it is my home away from home. It's not too big and it's not too small, both campus and class size. Also, although this school consists of a majority of commuter students and there isn't much to do around campus, being right next to Cincinnati is so much fun. There is always something going on down there. The athletics here aren't a priority for many students, but it's been rebuilding since NKU transitioned to D1 athletics. Lastly, the professors here are phenomenal. All the professors I have genuinely enjoy their job and the subjects that they teach. NKU has given me my "other family"....my Norse family.
