4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Have a variety of different food options available in almost every building on campus!

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: By living on campus you are exposed to a community that is there for the same reason you are, an education. It is a very positive environment to be in.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: It's like a normal college area but in a suburb

3 College Junior

Administration: It is fairly average set of rules.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: There is always a prevalence of parties if you know where to look and don't be afraid to visit UC!

3 College Junior

Scholarships: The process was kind of confusing. I felt like the financial aid advisors didn't talk to each other and I didn't really receive the aid I needed.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Compared to other schools in KY, Northern actually has some great on campus housing. Most of the campus is commuter.

4 Recent Alumnus

Administration: most things go very well, but there seems to be a lot of frivelous spending while tuition goes up every year

3 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: relatively small number of scholarships to be applied for

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Food: Quality is good, but most things are too expensive--especially for college students

Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The campus is relatively safe. I have not heard of violence or sexual assault on campus. Some special security measures include completing a survey about how the student sees sexual assault and drug and alcohol abuse that provides information, posts all around campus where a student can call the police for an escort should they feel unsafe, and a program called NorseAlert, where students are notified of problems on campus. I have felt rather safe on campus, safe enough to walk 20 minutes to and from my dorm building that resides a bit away from campus.

College Freshman

Athletics: I don't involve myself in the athletics scene. I don't know much about it, really.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I only looked at on-campus housing.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I don't go much to get off-campus dining. Often I go to Subway for fast and semi-healthy food. The best part about Callahan hall though is the fact that there's a Kroger across the street that has almost everything a student needs.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The fact that there are always places nearby to call police should you need an escort makes me feel safe enough to walk to and from campus to my dorm.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I do not go to parties. I never make the effort to look for them.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Being the first to go to college, I had no idea as to how the financial aid process worked. What could have been helpful was a readily-available guide as to how the financial aid process worked (with screenshots of the process for more visual people). Tips: Apply early. Look up all the things you need. Go out to the financial aid administration and ask questions, they will help.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The Student Union has a variety of food places that can apply to any food eater. From fast pizza to a healthy salad, there is a lot of variety. My only problem is that most food places close by 3, which means students that have later classes don't have a good opportunity to get food.
