Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2015

I feel like my graduate program is just going to further me in my goals for starting a place for children to come who don't really have a great home life. I feel NKU will give me that advantage. College is really expensive, that is probably the biggest con for everyone, but I just keep trucking along hoping and praying money will come!

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

Northern Kentucky University has a small social work program and to me, has positive and negative elements. Student to teacher ratio is small and intimate. Teachers are very knowledgeable and easy to approach. The downfall of having small program is that there is not much diversity. Most of the students are also local, and diversity between students or experience is scarce.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2014

The counseling program is comprehensive and teaches you a great deal. However some of the classes feel as if they should be taught with a more practical approach and depending on which professor you have depends on whether that happens or not. I have had issues with feeling like my voice is being heard when there is an issue with a professor or I am struggling and have been unsuccessful in approaching the professor for assistants.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

The counselor program at NKU is a very good program. The professors are accessible, and the school is affordable. Most courses are offered at night so that grad students with jobs can still work and go to school at the same time.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2016

Just enrolled in program but I know that the program is very beneficial and helps its students become better counselors, however affording the program is going to be a major set back.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2014

Thank you for this opportunity! My pros for my graduate program: Nku excepted me into the nurse practitioner program. This is after trying 3 other schools. I am grateful. The graduate nursing office is very helpful in getting you to succeed. They are all about completing your program on top. Financially this school is affordable with quality education services provided Many of the school I attempted to enter cost was almost double. The cons: When going to school online you have to read all of your emails daily and make sure you read all information pertaining to your degree. The one time you don't you will have missed an important deadline or inquiry needed to continue. This at times can be difficult with work and home life. Another con, instructor accessibility. Communication between instructor and student is solely dependent on email and blackboard. There are rare times when you may need to call to receive a quick answer and may not be able to reach them. The waiting game is awful when it comes to your grade.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2017

From all of my research Chase College of Law is one of the regions best law schools. They give law students the ability to begin practicing law through their many clinics.
