elizabeth Shelley Biological sciences major ELIZABETH SHELLEY participates in undergraduate research to stop the spread of White Nose Syndrome, a disease that has killed more than a million bats on the East Coast, causing multiple problems in ecosystems. “We went into parts of Mammoth Cave and swabbed bats. They would be hanging from the ceiling, and they weren’t like you would expect. They were sweet and docile, and they let us swab them on their wings and muzzles with really long Q-tips.”

josh Bohl When Josh Bohl, a finance major, was looking for a school, he wanted something specific: An environment that was close knit but that was also near a big city with big opportunity. NKU fit the bill. Bohl landed an internship at nearby General Electric in Cincinnati, where he helped analyze the finances of the energy department. “I’ve made some connections here and met some people. My experience is opening all kinds of doors. Having GE on your résumé looks really, really good.” Bohl is now working as a financial analyst for Hill-Rom., Inc.


5 minutes to downtown Cincinnati Why put off your dreams? NKU undergraduates obtain first-hand, practical experience through research projects and co-op and internship experiences. NKU’s proximity to major national and international corporations gives students a chance to expand learning beyond the classroom.

keith Justice Athletic training major KEITH JUSTICE spent his time as a Cincinnati Bengals intern preparing the field for practice, taping up athletes, and taking care of injured athletes, giving them ice bags and massages, as well as transporting players to the hospital. Always a football fan, Justice says, “It was surreal spending time in an NFL locker room.” Justice’s internship experience prepared him for a position at the Hughston Clinic in Columbus, Ohio, and graduate school, where he is studying health and physical education.
