    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.

    NKU is a great school because the staff really cares about the student. From the advisers to the professors they all make it their duty to assist in the students learning. This is what makes the learning experience so great.

    NKU is a good school with a wide variety of people, where you are likely to make good friends very quickly. There are plenty of locations around campus to do a variety of tasks (studying, relaxing, etc.). The campus as a whole is quite beautiful, especially in late summer/early fall.
