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.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have loved all the professors I had with so far through the years. My Art professors most definitely, I appreciate all the feedback and suggestions they give me to improve my works, even working on large scales! When I take my next art class, I'm taking my professor's advice to go where I am strongest in my works.

College Senior

Overall Experience: Researching career options for Major and Minor before graduation, but have ideas thanks to one of my Art professors.

College Senior

Nightlife: Haven't been to any off-campus bar and/club, but walking around campus when having night classes is enjoyable, even when viewing Griffin Hall's lights in the distance.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: I feel generally safe and comfortable on campus. We have emergency phones on campus and near the parking lots, I do see campus police drive around checking the parking lots and campus to ensure safety.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: I don't live in Campus Housing, but have stayed there during Orientation before starting the 2011 year and it was a great stay for the night. Roommate was great and so were the staff, very helpful!

5 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Guy and girls are all very nice on campus and friendly

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?
