  • I have not lived on campus, but I have friends who are/have. There are some newer dorms that people rave about and some not-so-great older dorms. It just depends…

    Lots of healthy and vegetarian options, along with southern style, pizza, and burritos. Not too expensive either.

    The food was good for the main part of the year, however the larger cafeteria on campus closed for renovations after spring break, which drastically decreased the quality of food for the end of the year. However i expect when it reopens in the fall, it will be much better.

    The only bad thing is you are required to have a meal plan for most on campus housing, and some days the food isn't all that great.

    There are so many options when it comes to food at NKU. Tons of different locations and a great variety such as grilled foods, fresh sandwich place, Mexican, Italian, papa johns, and much more. I have even heard recently that chic fil a might be coming to campus

    Staff is friendly and the food is pretty good! There's a variety of foods to choose from, including many healthy choices, vegetarian options, and more home-cooked type meals, instead of just all fast food. Not too expensive on the wallet either, if you don't have a meal plan.

    Some of the food is great, but it's nothing to write home about. They are constantly making adjustments and improvements, but it's still rather average.

    There are very few options of food at NKU. There are some restaurants at the Student Union but everything closes at 3 pm except for Starbucks. There are also a couple of small coffee shops on some of the buildings but these don't have a lot to choose from and they close at 6 pm. Nonetheless, there are some restaurants off-campus such as Chipotle, Big Boy, Burger King, etc.

    As a member of NKU's Greek Life, I can attest that it is amazing. The relations between each organization is amazing. When it comes down to someone in need, everyone pulls together.

    Greek life is huge here. Everywhere you turn there is something advertising it, or some Greek event going on. For those completely against Greek life, this could possibly be a turn-off.

    There are many Greek organizations and they are one of the best things about NKU. Greek life at NKU is something that anyone can join. NKU is known for having Greeks that do not haze their new members. Greek life is involved in philanthropy events, specific rituals, and many other things.

    Very visible and influential on campus. It's a good place for you if you're looking to be in a sorority or fraternity. Otherwise, your options are kind of limited.

    I'm a Greek so I think it is pretty awesome. We all get a long pretty well and there are a lot of us. Everybody tries to be really supportive of the different chapters.
