    I am a transfer student, and I quickly discovered that NKU had everything that my previous college was lacking. Honestly, the transfer process was a bit tedious and messy. However, even if I had been aware of the profusion of emails I had to send and reply to and all the financial aspects of transferring, I would do it again every time because of the warm, friendly atmosphere and countless opportunities this school has granted me.

    All of the teachers I've ever had knew what they were talking about and taught very well. The campus looks so beautiful since the school has been remodeling the landscape. The downside is the parking lots and garages fill up fast and the construction has been going on.

    Has small class sizes which is great for having personalized relationships with the professors. The faculty has been fantastic, I have only had a couple of professors that I would not recommend to anyone. The sports facilities are fantastic, and it has been a great experience being a student-athlete.

    I would rate NKU a 3 out of 5. The reasons it is not a 5 is because it is mostly a commuter college and many campus buildings are large concrete blocks. Overall, the programs, professors, and campus provisions are high quality.

    Northern Kentucky University is a small university that with a small tuition. Even though it is cheap, we have incredible programs and many opportunities for advancement. Also, because it is so small, it is not hard for one to find a position in undergraduate students.

    Has a lot of great programs, for undergrads and graduate students. The community on and around campus is amazing, and it really becomes a real home away from home.
