NKU students...

Welp, in case you haven’t noticed, our website, thenortherner.com, was hacked. Early Tuesday morning, our adviser Jacque Day logged on only to see an error page. Apparently, the “hack” happened within the last few days. According to our host School Newspapers Online (SNO), we had over 7,000 subscribers,...

In this week’s issue, staff writer Zachary Rogers previews The Rally for Higher Education. The event, which will be held Feb. 7, is exactly the type of call to action that Northern Kentucky University students need to respond to. We can all afford to be lazy occasionally.

Thanks to the Great Icy Doom of 2012, we weren’t able to make it Lexington this year to accept our Kentucky Intercollegiate Press Association awards. So we relied on our brave adviser Jacque Day to return them to us. Here’s the low-down on what we missed: For 2011, The Northerner received 13 KIPA...

The brief Jan. 11 Board of Regents meeting set Twitter feeds on fire because the Student Union will be renamed. However, one very important bit of information fell by the wayside: the potential budget cut of up to 7 percent that NKU could face in the next fiscal year. NKU draws most of its funding...

All the thinking and planning and dreaming of what I would say on the day I finally got to write my farewell editorial has done me absolutely no good. I’m sitting at my desk Tuesday night, about two hours from deadline with a stack of flats that need editing and I have no idea what to say. Who knew...

It’s hard to believe, but I’ll be leaving this campus of concrete and rebar; our beloved Concrete Jungle. It’s been a long, long five and a half years, but then again that seems to be too short. This campus has changed significantly since I started in Fall of ‘06. Two new buildings and a few...

Finally. It’s that time. I’ve gone through countless panic attacks, hundreds of flashcards, too much stress and too many awful professors. But I’ve had an amazing number of really awesome ones. I want to thank Dr. Barclay Green for giving me the courage to become a published author. He restored...

Another student was hit on campus Nov. 29. While the initial reaction is to blame the driver, the trend of students getting bowled over on campus is starting to raise some eyebrows. Particularly, ours. After The Northerner learned of the incident, conversation flew through our office. In specific,...
