NKU Magazine Fall-Winter 2017-18 Issue Cover

The Fall/Winter 2017-18 issue of NKU Magazine features a look back at the people, places and things that made NKU’s first half-century “The Big 50.” And, looking to what’s ahead for the university, we introduce you to NKU’s new, incoming president, Dr. Ashish Vaidya, who ponders identity in the modern age, discusses the need for collaborative vision-development moving forward and tosses up an enthusiastic set of horns for his inaugural "Norse Up.”

And meet Dr. Scott Nutter—professor, astrophysicist and space aeronautics buff—who, in 2017, traveled to Florida to watch ISS-CREAM, an instrument he helped develop, be loaded onto a SpaceX rocket and delivered to the International Space Station. Plus, meet alumni doing interesting things in the region, across the country and around the globe, and get details on the upcoming Alumni Awards and Homecoming weekend.
