NKU is a great school for a good price. I am pleased with my decision to attend this University.

I have only been on campus for around five days, but ever since my first visit during my senior year of high school, I have loved NKU. The campus is extremely easy to navigate, and if you manage to lose your way, there is always someone to help you. Every staff member is here for the same reason, to help you. Overall, Northern is the perfect school for anyone.

This school provides great opportunities and options as far as classes, but they are terribly restrictive on scholarships, payment plans, and extremely excessive about their fees for students. It's very discouraging seeing the University cease hope from their future students.
