Getting involved is a great way to meet people and experience NKU to the fullest. After I went through Orientation as a new student, I knew it was something I wanted to be involved in. During my first year, I waited until I had the first chance to apply and become an orientation leader. I found it rewarding to help incoming students adjust to college.

As an international student, I flew nearly 12,000 miles away from home to study at NKU. I was scared, and I really didn’t know what to expect, but now I am so glad that I took this step and came here. NKU has given and continues to give me so many great opportunities regardless of where I come from.

NKU Athletics is an NCAA Division I program with membership in the Horizon League. Following a storied history as a Division II program that included 72 conference titles, 25 regional championships and three national championships, NKU made the transition.
In May 2015, after just three years in Division I, Northern Kentucky accepted an invitation to join the prestigious Horizon League. Prior to the 2016-17 season, the NCAA granted Northern Kentucky active Division I status, and Northern Kentucky won Horizon League Tournament Championships in men's basketball and women's soccer and appeared in the NCAA tournament in both sports.
