For Olivia Snowden, having fun with other students is what makes Northern Kentucky University feel like home.

Olivia, who is a junior studying Cybersecurity and Computer Information Technology, is involved with the Honors College and was recently awarded a scholarship to support her education.

“The Honors College has been my rock during my time at NKU,” she says.

And it's also given her the chance to learn about subjects outside of her core majors. In a recent Honors course, she completed an abstract art piece in response to Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick.

“I loved that I was able to study literature and art, which, as a computer major, I don’t get to enjoy very often.”

“There is no better place to pull an all-nighter than sitting underneath the beautiful lights and getting a panoramic view of campus.”

Olivia is most interested in cloud computing and virtualization and is excited to enter the workforce to make her mark on the technology field.

She spent eight months as a corporate information security intern for Kroger Technology.

“I helped protect Kroger from cyberthreats, and even helped open Kroger’s new lab on NKU’s campus.”

Her favorite place to spend time on campus is the dome of Griffin Hall.

“There is no better place to pull an all-nighter than sitting underneath the beautiful lights and getting a panoramic view of campus.”

Before graduation, Olivia thinks all students should do as much as they can to get involved and to use all the services NKU provides.

“Make sure to take advantage of tutoring and career services! They can help make your classes and job searches much easier.”
