Back to school for NKU
HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky, (WKRC) -- Monday is the first day of school for many local college students.
Northern Kentucky University's classes start back up.
New this year, the school will begin offering a cyber security certificate program, and the athletic programs will be eligible for the Atlantic Sun Tournament for the first time.
Around 15,000 students are attending the university this fall and about 2,000 students are living on campus right now. That's the most in the school's history.
Travis Brinkman, a freshman at NKU, said "I think living on campus gives you a better college experience because you actually get to be around all the activities longer, in case there is an activity you do want to go to, you're already here so you don't have to travel far, you don't have to waste gas or anything like that."
The university says over the past two years, applications to NKU have gone up by 38 percent.
The last two incoming freshman classes are the most academically qualified in school history.
