Northern Kentucky University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (10)
Northern Kentucky University is a great institution for anyone seeking a degree and a positive experience. My favorite experience from NKU was being apart of a welcoming community that made an impact on my life forever. I was able to achieve my goal of becoming a teacher while taking part in a wonderful college experience!
NKU has a number of great majors that get students ready for what they want to do. If students are unsure of the major the want or what career paths they want to pursue, their advisors and professors are always willing to help. Most of the professors also understand that life happens, and they will do anything to try and help you.
Northern Kentucky University is a wonderful, student centered university with many different educational options for every type of student. They are on the rise in many ways in the Ohio valley region be it in athletics, education, student life, and student diversity so this is a great time to be a part of the growth NKU is experiencing. The business management major was a great choice for me as it could be for you. There were a plethora of class options and great instruction for classes and even career by the college of businesses advising team. Overall I was most happy with the fact that the major offered so many different classes in different aspects of business such as finance, accounting, marketing, HR, business ethics, etc. NKU is a great university and if business interests you definitely check out the business management degree!
I am happy with the time I spent at NKU. I would say the quality of instruction is overall average, but there are teachers throughout the school who are fantastic. I spent the first several years of my college experience as a Music Education major, but then changed direction. I took several years off, and came back as a distance learner (online student). Both experience were valuable. Bottom line: I liked it, but always do your research.
Northern Kentucky University's Anthropology program is a great opportunity to discover interests that pertain to anthropology whether it be cultural, linguistics, physical/biological or archeology. During my time at the university, I was elated to learn that I could study cultural and archeology. There were many studies abroad trips one could take and professors encouraged hands-on and group work. However, I was not pleased with how many careers there would be in solely studying anthropology. I would not recommend anthropology as a major unless one wants to pursue a career in that field. I would recommend it as a minor, coupled with another field of study one is interested in.
It was a great program. I was able to complete most of my courses online, which allowed me to do my course work at night (I was working full time, too). Professors were nice, helpful, and knowledgeable.
I loved this program in the college. I only attended as a master's student, so I do not know what the undergraduate experience is like there. They had a good amount of activities and being located very near Cincinnati there were a lot of internship opportunities.
Northern Kentucky University is excellent for students who want a personalized experience in a large university feel. Class sizes are very small and you get to know your professors very well. Tuition is affordable and the opportunities for internships, co-ops, and jobs are amazing!
It was a great experience. I met a bunch of great students and teachers.
I loved NKU! The classes are small so professors are able to engage their classes better, and really try to help a student to the best of their abilities. There are so many options for receiving extra help with particular classes, including tutoring and supplementary instruction sessions. There are all different types of organizations for students to join and be involved on campus ranging from student government, Greek life, religious, political, honors societies, and so much more. Plus the campus isn't extremely big so it makes getting to classes on time much easier. I loved everything about my experiences at NKU and I would highly recommend this university!
