2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: There were several times, me and my sister went into finical aid to get things sorted out. My dad even had to come in there a view times because me and my sister didn't know what was going with the finical aid.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus to give any opinion. But from what i have seen, the dorms seem pretty average. I have seen worse dorms at other colleges.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There is no housing for Greek life. That was one of the reasons i didn't do it. Plus how much it cost and time consuming it is. Especially with how much i work, i don't think i would have enough time to do Greek life. No Greeks still see Greeks as regular class mates.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: This year NKU became a tobacco free campus. A lot less kids smoke outside, but some still try to do so. Its nothing like high school strict. But i don't live on campus, so I'm not sure how strict they are about that.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I personally love sports. When there is a game going on, no matter what sport, there are signs everywhere saying who were playing, what time, and where. School spirit is awesome. All you do at orientation is get the freshman excited to become a norse!

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There are several spots throughout campus where there is a pole, with a phone on it in case of emergencies. That phone can only be used for emergencies. When the phone is used it goes to the campus police. I like the fact that NKU has their own police station, along with the city's police station. I feel very safe at NKU.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: NKU's athletic center is amazing. There is a gym right on campus and its nice to have motivation to workout without having to pay a certain amount each month. The student center is amazing as well! they have lots of places to choose what you want to eat. There's a starbucks for that early morning drag. And there is tons of places to study. The library is a great place to study for me because everyone is quiet. There is a little bagel place where you can get coffee and get some snacks to have while you are studying.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: I personally don't see any challenges with social standings or making friends because of what ethnic/racial diversity or economic background. People do have conversations about their political beliefs, religion, and sexual orientation, but it usually doesn't cause any drama or any conflicts unless of what one person says can offend the other. Most people have different beliefs on everything. So why shun them out if their opinion is different?

3 College Junior

Nightlife: Not much nightlife in the area. Have to go to Cincinnati for something other than a hole in the wall bar

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Same as at any school

2 College Junior

Facilities: WiFi is unreliable if you can connect at all. Buildings are old, outdated and block any cell service that might have afforded you internet access. Phone and tablet batteries just drain as they constantly search for service. Plumbing is super slow and has no pressure

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Much safer than larger schools in larger cities.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Administration seems reactive rather than proactive

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Unhealthy, but cheaper than on-campus

3 College Junior

Athletics: Athletics have never been a priority at this school, although they are working to change that

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: The same over priced, unhealthy food you would find at any school.

3 College Junior

Diversity: We have a little of everything/everyone on campus and there do not seem to be any intolerance issues

4 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek to non-Greek relations are better at this school than most. Wish they were able to get frat/sorority housing outside of the dorms though to have a better Greek experience.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Same problems you would have at any school

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Average campus housing. Old, over-priced and not close to classes.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: It's just your typical, run-of-the-mill scene. Very few people stand out in good or bad ways. No one is exceptionally great looking, rich, or well-dressed. This is a college full of people looking to get an education, and maybe make some friends. Status is less important here.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: You can sometimes feel left out if you are in greek life.

4 College Senior

Campus Strictness: They are strict on some things but not others.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Off campus dining is no where near healthy, but it is convenient

4 College Senior

Athletics: I believe there is room for anyone to part take in athletics here on campus. You can play competitively like club ball or not as competitive with intramurals.
