Every kind of person, everybody can do it you just have to work for it. But if you have an amazing support system everything will be amazing.

Lori

Anyone can attend NKU, but it has been extremely helpful for me because of the amount of online courses available. I am able to obtain my Bachelor of Science degree while working full time and around my work schedule. So in my opinion, I think if someone is looking to obtain a degree but has a schedule that is not very flexible, NKU is a good college to look into.

Considering NKU is LGBTQIA friendly, racially and religiously diverse, and does not favor any sex above another, I believe virtually any and every student should attend this school. The university tends to residential and commuter students and provides schedules for those with jobs and families. All professors put into consideration that their students have lives outside of school and may be experience difficult situations throughout the semesters. NKU provides an effective and healthy learning environment that any college student should consider attending NKU.

Northern Kentucky University is a very laid back and relaxed campus. This school would be recomended for students who are serious about their education but are very easy going as well. NKU gives many fun activities to get involved with and is very safe. I wouldn't recommend my school to someone who enjoys partying, NKU is very quiet and relaxed. Although we do have our bon fires and occasional get togethers in the courtyards, parties aren't our specialty.

The type of person who should attend Northern Kentucky University is a person who is not affraid to ask for help because help is there for us to use.

NKU is the perfect school for the people who loves getting involved.

I'd say it is more a commuter school. The campus life isn't like many other colleges so there usually isn't a lot going on, on campus besides playing sand volleyball. Someone who really strives to get involved with people so that way yoou strivfe to look for something to do and don't just got to class and then home and not truly have a college experience.

People attending NKU should also be friendly and eager to learn, since everyone I have met at NKU has been super nice and their education is always a top priority!

The type of person that should attend NKU is someone who does not mind being in a close knit community.
