Review Northern Kentucky University
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!
Northern Kentucky University is an outstanding university! The school has small class sizes, so even the professor will know and even remember your name. This allows for a relationship with the professor and a better learning atmosphere. The professors truly care about the students learning and well-being. There are also a ton of clubs and fraternity/sorority to get more involved. Overall, this campus is unlike any other, due to their love for students and faculty alike.
I LOVE NKU. This is the most inviting campus I have ever been to. The people are amazing and so nice. The professors are involved with things on campus, the food is so good! Nku offers amazing opportunities for all students who are attending whether you are commuting or you are a resident. The organization opportunities are through the roof, from Greek Life, to sports teams, NKU offers something for every taste, and if they don't have something you want, they will help you create a program for it!
