My first semester at Northern Kentucky University has been a Great experience! Ever since I first came to visit the campus, i knew, for sure, that I would love it. There are different programs that you can be in before school starts that'll get you familiar to campus and other students. For example, I was in NKU R.O.C.K.S. and it was a really great experience for me. I made friends and participated in different activities that familiarized me with the campus. The professors are also really nice! They are willing to work with you if you accidentally slack behind and they are really passionate about what they teach. They care more about helping you become successful, than getting a check and that's what I love about them. There are so many courses offered, and even if you are undeclared, your academic adviser ensures that you get a little taste of all that NKU has to offer and that';; help you make your decision. The Classes are not too big and not too small. They are big enough so that there is an atmosphere created and they are small enough to where someone shy would be able to speak out. There are so many great opportunities at NKU and I would love for people to have the opportunity to experience it like I did.

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!

I love NKU! Everyone is so welcoming, especially your first day. There's lots of booths and people trying to get you to be a part on campus. NKU is a campus that is just right for me. Because of the fact that it's a small campus, it's really easy to navigate classes and get to them in a 10 minute interval. NKU has made my college experience the best that it could be. If I could do it all over, I would still choose NKU because when I first visited the campus, I fell in love with it. It's so beautiful and the professors are so willing to help you out if you need it and they will work with you. They want to see us succeed and you don't get the vibe that they're just doing it for the money. They actually make connections with you and do the best they can so that they don't have to fail you. As long as you're willing to work with them, they're willing to work with you. That's why I love my school.
