There is certainly enough to do on campus, so it feels like your getting your money's worth with the amount of classes they have available. They also try and take all the steps they can to make it the least expensive it can be, even for their abroad terms, and the class fees in general. Even with allowing you to rent things such as laptops and textbooks for free with a swipe of your student ID card. So you could have a school year where you don't pay anything for books!
If I had to say anything about NKU, it's that it has definitely seen a huge growth in the past few years both attendance and campus wise. Not to mention our sports teams have gotten only better and better every year; we even managed to get into the NCAA this year as a Division 1 school. The impression that i had, and the one most visiting students probably get about NKU is that it is a small campus; yes, unfortunately there's not much campus ground but it more than makes up for it in its class sizes. My one concern about first entering college was one about being overlooked by a professor in a huge lecture class, well fortunately here at NKU the classes are made to accommodate the students. Not once have I had a huge lecture class in which I felt I had no strong engagement with my professor, in actuality I refer to my professors by their first name, and that the kind of relationship that really will help you feel at home and help you grow here at NKU!
I love how open everyone is to one another and will come up to you and just start a conversation! This college had amazing greeklife and great potential. However, it’s downfall is some of the professors don’t even know what they are doing, or don’t seem to want to help the students.
