About Northern Kentucky University
Northern Kentucky University (NKU)
has become a leader in the Greater Cincinnati area and the Commonwealth of Kentucky
. One of the fastest growing schools in Kentucky, NKU enrolls more than 14,000 students. While NKU has grown into a major metropolitan university, the professors still know the students' names. With an average class size of just 24 students, NKU is able to offer the kind of personalized attention students receive at private universities for a fraction of the cost. NKU's faculty and staff are second to none, and are eager to help-each other, the students, and the region. The friendly and supportive campus environment is a hallmark of the Northern experience. That is one of the reasons NKU was recently named by the Cincinnati Business Courier as one of the Best Places to Work in Cincinnati.
NKU students have access to more than just a great faculty and staff -- they have access to some of the world's most sophisticated technology. NKU's Natural Science Center features equipment that is the most advanced in the nation. NKU students also participate in unique undergraduate research opportunities, working alongside faculty on projects and programs that improve the quality of life in our region. Many of these projects have been widely heralded and have helped make Northern a national model for civic engagement.
One of the major keys to the success of the student body is NKU's commitment to building a diverse population
on its' campus. Our students are both commuter and dorm residents, traditional and non-traditional, and represent many nationalities, ethnicities, and races. NKU is strengthened by the contributions of the students that it serves and the unique talents and perspectives that students bring to the campus. NKU is very proud of its students. About 85 percent of them work at least 20 hours per week. Some work much more. NKU has about 35,000 alumni who live and work in Greater Cincinnati fulfilling their dreams in a variety of professions.
