4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: I believe there is an endless amount of options for any foodie seeking for a fresh option, but you just need to look for it.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I think, since we recently became a district 1 school, that employers will now be seeking students from NKU far more than in the past.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I've met a lot of great people here, both professors and students and I've learned a lot that I never would if I never attended her. I think this university is definitely more humble then other universities, which is nice.

3 College Senior

Academics: I love the art program and even some of the gen. eds that I've had to take, but some teachers have been either too strict or don't care at all, so I would definitely go to ratemyprofessor.com before signing up for a class to see if its right for you.

5 College Senior

Academics: I really wish the school board would pay more attention towards the art program because it is such an awesome program with a lot of talented students who have such a passion for what they do.

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: The local area has plenty to do and see, but sometimes you have to look for it just a little.

College Senior

Majors: I've never had a internship, and not entirely sure if I want one. The only internship I would consider having is the art gallery internship which shows students how to hang up art properly.

4 College Senior

Majors: The process I went through wasn't difficult in order to get into my program. I'm a studio arts major with a creative writing minor, so the only thing you really have to do is fill out your college application with intended major and your in, but that doesn't mean it's a sure thing. Do not procrastinate with projects or you'll regret it.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: I'm not a Greek, so once again, I'm not sure how well I can honestly rate this. But, as far as I can tell, the Greek life is pretty normal and no one will treat you differently if you are not a part of one.

3 College Senior

Athletics: I'm not sure if I'm the best person to rate this portion since I'm not a sports person and don't really pay attention to the sporting teams. I do notice some of the flyers around school for the varsity teams but that's about it.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: I see campus police just about everywhere. At at orientation, they are sure to give you their number in case you ever need them.

4 College Senior

Nightlife: I'm not much of a party girl. I much prefer staying home with a good book or movie. But, if I were to go out and about, I would go to Newport on the Levee with my friends where there are plenty of clubs, bars, and places to walk next to the river all for reasonable prices. Not to mention, if we ever wanted to venture into Cincinnati, we could stay parked in Newport and just walk the Purple People Bridge to get there.

3 College Senior

Facilities: To be honest, there isn't much of a student life here. There are sports teams and clubs and what-not, but if you're looking for a party school-this place isn't for you. The theater program is AMAZING, however, and the art galleries are gorgeous. There is definitely things to do here, but not exactly on campus. Most students go to Newport or Downtown Cincinnati which is 5-10 minutes from campus to hang out and have fun.

4 College Senior

Campus Strictness: I wouldn't say that NKU is strict. At least that is not what I've experienced while being there. I've been encouraged to break boundaries and explore other possibilities and outcomes, which is pretty awesome and opens up so many doors as to how one sees the world and how to solve problems that we confront everyday.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Off campus dining has the same variety as I did back home. They have a lot of the places I really enjoy but the only downfall is they aren't open real late.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: Student life on campus is extremely welcoming. There are a good amount of places to go between classes and the school really encourages the use of the student centers and tutors that are available. Greek life is a large part of the campus because athletics are not their main priority on the campus. Everyone encourages you to get involved and everyone I have talked to has talked about their love for the school and how they are proud to be a Norse.

3 College Senior

Campus Dining: The food and restaurants provided on campus are okay, some prices can be a little outrageous for certain selections.

5 College Senior

Academics: It's amazing, you don't just focus on one media, you get to experience ones you are not normally use to and it becomes one of the best classes to take. Some art professors will let you listen to music from your own selections or they turn on the radio to help ease the atmosphere while you work. The workloads can seem a lot, but can it can be done. I was not a big ceramist or painter, but taking the classes was an experience that I enjoyed learning!

4 College Senior

Academics: Our campus provides extra help out of the class room for certain subjects, if I have friends if similar classes we usually tend to study together and provide ideas to help each other out. The professors are easy to approach and most of the extra credit is worth doing to help boosts those grades up, even if those grades help you when its Finals week!

5 College Senior

Majors: I greatly enjoy it, it builds up my art skills in different media instead of one and getting out of the comfort zone is a lot of fun. The work load and time can seem a bit overwhelming at times, but seeing your hard work pay off is a victory and hearing other likes and suggestions help out for the next project to come.

4 College Senior

Majors: The process to build up to the Major is not bad, there are fees to certain classes for art, but not extreme. Getting the credits you need and placing a time that will work not just you, but also your job. Its been a challenge trying to involve school, work, and being involved with family or friend activities was difficult, but it does get a little easier over time.

College Senior

Diversity: Its hard to watch someone walk on campus with a sign or preaching about homosexuality not being right anywhere, even when it involved our soldiers. It infuriates me to hear someone talk like that around campus.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: It's okay, it is a headache to work with. Especially if my guardians have to get involved with information that I cannot provide.

College Senior

Athletics: Not a sports fan, but the spirits are great for them around campus.

3 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Normally don't travel around near campus, but went to a couple of shops near by for campus supplies and very helpful people around.
