“NKU Day” Visits Two

Local High Schools 


November 5, 2019—  Northern Kentucky University’s Office of Admissions and School-Based Scholars program (SBS) brings “NKU Day” to two local high schools on Nov. 8, 2019. 

NKU faculty and staff will visit Boone County Schools' Ignite Institute campus, as well as Beechwood High School in Ft. Mitchell, to showcase the research and creative work happening around campus. Admission representatives will also be available to help students navigate the admissions process.  

  • Ignite Institute | 9:40 a.m. | Dr. Yi Hu and Dr. Anthony Tsetse | Cybersecurity

Dr. Tsetse and Dr. Yi Hu will present information about exciting programs in NKU’s Computer Science department, highlighting strides made by NKU’s Cyber Defense Team. The team consistently wins the state Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition and last year outscored all teams competing from Ohio, Indiana, Wisconsin and Missouri.

  • Beechwood H.S. | 2:08 p.m. | Brad McCombs | BLINK 2019

Professor McCombs will focus on the School of the Arts’ (SOTA) installation for BLINK 2019. He will explore how the dynamic artwork and collaboration impacted students and will also share examples of other creative opportunities that exist at SOTA.

The SBS program enables students to earn college credit before graduating from high school and is designed to make taking the courses convenient. Courses can be taken at the high schools, NKU’s main campus, NKU’s Grant County location or online. The current course cost is $58 per credit hour. More than 1,800 students were enrolled in NKU courses during the Fall 2019 semester.
