"NKU Day" to Include Visits to Three NKY High Schools

The second annual NKU Day will include three visits to Northern Kentucky high schools on Friday.

Northern Kentucky University faculty and staff will visit Grant County, Highlands, and Lloyd high schools to discuss admissions, scholarships, and financial aid.

The day begins at Grant County at 9 a.m. with a presentation by Jeff Fox on informatics, including details on Fox's interests in organizational communication with an emphasis on the airline industry.

At 1:54 p.m., the day continues with a presentation by Dr. Joe Cobbs on "What sparks rivalry?".

Dr. Cobbs and his students surveyed over 10,000 fans of collegiate and profession sports. The presentation will uncover the 11 elements that contribute to rivalries between teams. Their research on the topic has been featured in the Wall Street Journal and several other national and international media outlets.

At 8:30 a.m., a visit to Lloyd will include a presentation by Jill Shelley on how crime scene investigations come to life. Shelley will discuss how NKU students uncover the art of modern forensic science by learning to process crime scenes. It will include the hands-on crime scene processing activities at NKU such as lifting latent prints, casting impressions, and much more.
