Community Connections offers programs, activities, and resources that are dedicated to fostering a commitment to attain a postsecondary education in the minds of elementary and middle school students. The younger the child is when exposed to college, the better the chances that a student will incorporate college into his/her lifelong goals. NKU faculty, staff, students, and alumni have created activities for teachers, community youth coordinators, and families to use; supplementing lesson plans, adding to their own programming and allowing the next generation to explore topics through the lens of NKU research and creative efforts.
The Norse Explore campus visitation program provides field trip opportunities to school groups and community organizations. Whole grade levels, classes, small groups, and homeschool families can schedule a campus visit and visitors will meet with NKU faculty, staff, and students, go into NKU classrooms and labs for activities, tour campus, and more. For more information about Norse Explore group visits, email email@example.com.
