    NKU is the best school for anyone. With so many different organizations and events, it makes everyone feel welcomed and a part of the family. You have to actually look at nku from the inside not the outside. Then, you will truly see what it feels like to be a Norse!

    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.
