NKU Open House Coming to Covington Boys & Girls Club
Northern Kentucky University and the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Cincinnati announced a new partnership designed to promote a pathway to college for young people.
The All Roads Lead to NKU events will take place at the Covington and Price Hill club locations.
The open house experience presents prospective students with an inside look at what it's like being a student at NKU. They will have the opportunity to learn more about getting involved on campus, residential housing and many different career pathways.
NKU advisors from its admissions and financial aid offices, as well as current students, are attending the open house experience to help address questions.
“NKU is delighted to get involved with the Boys & Girls Club and its work to help deserving students reach their dreams. We are coming together to make a difference and open the doors to educational opportunities,” said NKU President Ashish Vaidya. “It’s never too early to learn what it means to be a Norse, and our goal is to ensure all roads lead to NKU.”
The university also announced a $500 scholarship for a graduate from the class of 2021 and 2022 who enrolls at NKU attending the event. The Boys & Girls Club will also raffle off various gift cards.
“This partnership is designed to empower learners to excel in school,” Bill Bresser, CEO of the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Cincinnati. “The focus of our mission is to motivate youth in ways they become successful, grow and thrive in both the classroom and the community. We’re excited to see the engaging programs NKU will unwrap at the events.”
