    Art in the Age of Social Media

    Any time one of us responds to a social media post, the action creates a potential dopamine release in the brain of the poster, a short-term feedback loop not dissimilar to the pleasure felt when biting into a piece of cheesecake or completing a brisk run.

    Student Spotlight: Claire Poling

    "I chose NKU for the class sizes and the wide variety of majors to choose from. Many of my classes are large enough to have a true college feel but small enough that my professors know my name. NKU is also big enough to have many different majors, so I knew I’d be able to find the right one for me. I have stayed at NKU because it is a perfect medium size, so it has the advantages of big schools as well as small schools."
