To say that my summer evolved at a slow pace would be quite an understatement. My summer strongly resembled a slow snail stuck in a pile of molasses, and reflecting on my overwhelming underachievement was a daunting task to say the least. As the last weekend rolled around before the semester started,...

My trip to South Africa was different in more ways than I had ever expected it to be, and still there's not a single second that I regret, or that I will ever forget. It was an extremely eye-opening experience in more ways than you could imagine and though I'll try, I don't think my words could ever...

On May 13, I along with nine classmates and two professors, will embark on the trip of a lifetime to Port Elizabeth, South Africa for two weeks. This clearly isn’t just a vacation that we are going on. It is part of our Media Around the World class, taught by Sarah Drabik and Chris Strobel. The...

New beginnings for a sound end

It was all set. I had everything ready to go. I may have been a “super-senior,” but I had no plans to move on to being an “ultra-senior.” Those kinds of powers could have easily corrupted me, and with great power comes great responsibility. The problem is, the longer I’m here at NKU, the less respon...

You do have to go home cause you can’t stay here

The term bittersweet has never been more applicable to my life than right now. As classes wrap up and my planner becomes more barren and satisfying to look at, I’m facing another challenge that’s different than just passing another round of classes in my efforts to receive a degree.  Moving home....

Wow. What can I say? This past year has gone by faster than I could’ve ever imagined. And while it has definitely been the busiest and most hectic, it has by far been the most rewarding experience of my life. Through my experience as the editor of the The Northerner, I have been able to meet people...

I have always dreaded writing my farewell to NKU and The Northerner because I knew it meant this amazing era in my life would come to an end. Although saying goodbye is inevitably sad, I am ready to focus on my career. Prior to becoming a Norse Many years ago when I was a student at Latonia Elemen...

I must confess that this stage in my life was not envisioned. I had no plan for college, much less post-grad. For as long as I can remember, my vision of growing up was portrayed through dreams of becoming a famous actress or singer. I’d be on tour with Britney Spears, and married off to Justin Timberlake....

I never imaged when I started school at NKU that I would one day work for The Northerner. I didn’t even know it existed until my sophomore year. I was then and now very aware of the reputation that the paper has on campus and being a part of this team has left me with an entirely different opinion....

People are my religion. This is my way of life and my purpose. I am at my best when I am working, laughing, meeting, and even competing with people. NKU’s biggest strength, and my reason for becoming a Norse, is people. To-do lists are my strength. In fact, this is how I have chosen to decorate...

Most college students spend their summers lounging by the pool working on their tans or serving fast food to annoying children. That was never me. Even though I am an aspiring writer, I got my tan on top of two story homes while repairing gutters or tearing off shingles. I would make a quick...

¡Hola!, Guten Tag, Nǐ Hǎo, Bonjour, Annyeong and Hej! These greetings are all in languages that are spoken in some of the countries Northern Kentucky University has an exchange agreement with. This academic year, around 331 NKU students will study abroad or have already done so. But why do these students...
