I was dropped into the London Heathrow Airport completely alone with a short list of items to ease me into the study abroad experience: 1. A broken laptop, 2. half the medicine I needed for the duration of my semester (after many crying sessions on the phone with the insurance company, they still...

This year, high school freshmen will be taught about 9/11 piece of history that happened nearly a year and a half before they were born. This is something I experienced along with millions of others.

Ask most students on campus why they came to college and the knee-jerk response is get a job that pays well that (ideally) we don’t hate. There are other expectations, too:  meeting new friends, exploring your identity and seeking new experiences. But,at the end of the day it seems impossible to ...

For more than half of my college career, The Northerner has consumed me. In fall 2015, I wrote a news story on the first gender-inclusive bathrooms coming to campus. The move came after SGA passed a resolution asking that they be placed in high-traffic areas of campus, but the initiative was one ...

I wasn’t sold on NKU when I first arrived on campus. As a commuter and a working student, I felt disconnected from the school I traveled to for classes every day. That was until I officially joined The Northerner. The experiences I’ve had as a member of The Northerner and as a student in the journ...

We admit: We're more than a little sad to let our seniors go. From reporting on the fly (sometimes skipping class to do so, shh...) to working long hours and late nights in the newsroom, our graduates will be missed. Here are their goodbyes. Ugh, do you have to go? ...

Polarizing as its appearance may be, it’s my opinion that NKU is a beautiful place. I don’t think I realized it until now, taking the opportunity to revisit the past four years of my life, realizing that my fondest memories of college are abstract, sensory experiences. I let myself slip into a daydre...

Two weeks ago, on Good Friday, many non-tenure track (NTTR) lecturers at NKU received letters that due to budget uncertainties, they may not have positions next school year. That’s 47 lecturers in the arts & sciences, 15 in informatics, 16 in education, and more across campus. They’re the...

Highways carved into mountains guided three vans of NKU students to the area where the War on Poverty was first declared by Lyndon B. Johnson in 1964.
