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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great university if you're having it paid for or living on campus. However if you're just a normal person, with a normal job, and don't live on campus. There's not a lot of resources available with off campus housing assistance. Not a lot of grants, loans or scholarship options. Also if you haven't done college before, its more of a do it yourself, less of a step by step, and handing holding process.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Nku is a fantastic institution. There is Greek life and plenty of organizations to join. Greek life is big because the fraternities and sororities are like a big family. They all work together and get along. Even though Greek life is big, it is not everything. There are plenty of other clubs and organizations to join. The academics are great as there are many majors/minors to choose from. The area is fun and safe too.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Northern Kentucky University, previously considered a commuter school is quickly becoming a great option for students looking for the full college experience. Degree options are increasing, and while academics are demanding they help to provide excellent career opportunity. Campus life and college spirit are alive and well, as are the constantly improving facilities available on campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

NKU is truly a great school. There is something for everyone, unless you're into partying or drinking. In which case, NKU isn't for you. Academics are at the forefront of all on-campus activities. You can go Greek if you like, but it's not too important.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Northern Kentucky University isn't the best university out there, but it certainly isn't the worst. The library is out of date and there is never enough study space in any building including the library. There also aren't many extra circular activities to be involved in, so the student body has no unification. There are some great professors who go out of their way to help you- I've gotten more advice from professors than from my advisors when it comes to scheduling and involvement.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Choosing to attend Northern Kentucky University has been one of the best decisions I made in life. NKU has so many programs that assist students with problems in areas such as finances, academics, childcare, and even peer to peer conflicts. NKU not only has programs set for students to succeed in many aspects, but also sets a diverse community. I appreciate diversity. I feel that with diversity we all can can broaden our minds and love to learn about other cultures. NKU sets the standard. There is even a restaurant in the cafeteria that serves culture specific food and changes each week. The advisors on campus are very helpful and encouraging. They guide you into seeing your path of success. When I step onto campus, I can feel in the atmosphere success, achievements and greatness, not just for me but for every NORSE and every future NORSE. I am looking forward in seeing where life will take me at Northern Kentucky University. Thank you NKU!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great school! It's affordable & everything is easily accessed. I am an online student at the moment but it is just as easy to contact my professors & get acquainted as if I were on campus.
