Lezlie - 9/1/2016
Degree: Music
Graduation Year: 2014
"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."

Kaden Pendleton-Deramus - 8/9/2016
Degree: Anthropology
Graduation Year: 2016
"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."

Degree: Industrial/Organizational Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014
"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!"

Sarah Hayley S. - 8/5/2014
Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2013
"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!"
