Welcome Center increases accessibility

Northern Kentucky University has a new resource to accommodate campus visitors: a Welcome Center.

The new “front door to the university,” as it is referred to by the center’s coordinator Maribeth Carskadon, officially opened June 16 and has since been providing information to visitors of the school.

The center is located on the ground floor of Steely Library across from the fountain. It is visible from Nunn Drive, which is key for visitors who are unfamiliar with the campus.

The center is provides any type of information a visitor might need, such as campus maps, application forms, course catalogs and financial aid forms.

The center also provides information to prospective and existing students.

Employees created a PowerPoint presentation that can be shown upon request.

The Welcome Center employs one part-time student and two part-time workers.

Operation hours are 8:15 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday, Friday 8:15 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The Welcome Center can be reached by phone Monday through Friday until 4:30 p.m. at 859- 572 -1485.
