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.

NKU’s first 50 years were marked by a bevy of grass-roots initiatives, but the school’s success is also beholden to our past presidents. So for our final eight listings, we look to the eight men who helmed a half-century of NKU.
As we celebrate the people and ideas that defined our beginnings, we’re also excited about what lies ahead—years that NKU will embark upon under the administration of our incoming sixth president, Dr. Ashish Vaidya.
