Atmosphere is a big part of college.AverageCommunications
Atmosphere is a big part of college. You don't want to feel like it's a drive through education and that's what you're getting at NKU. There's little to no school spirit the clubs and Greek life is a joke. A good atmosphere makes you want to stay and go to school. Without it you don't feel like a college student. NKU lacks the traditional college experience. If you're an older non traditional student with a full time Job and kids then NKU is good for you.

A good majority of the teachers don't actually care about your overall success.
I took an English class last semester that I had a perfect A+ in, but since I was late 8 times, the teacher failed me. I tried to explain that working until 3 in the mourning then going to school by 8 was kind of difficult and he wasn't hearing it.

He isnt the only teacher either. My parents called the university and they said each professor has complete control of their class. On top of the jerk teachers, its also VERY boring on campus. Its a dry campus that doesn't allow smoking either, needless to say, everyone goes else where to have fun

if you speak your mind about the injustices in a program save your breath this school does not care!I really haven't had a problem with financial aid or bursars. However, being a non traditional student does appear to present problems!
