    NSU is wonderful and the Scholar's program is equally amazing if not more so. It's almost too good to be true. Your fellow Scholars' become family and your professors are the matriarchs. You feel well taken care of and there's never a time you should ever feel alone. We have manage to have endless fun without it conflicting with our educational performance. And trust me, we do have our fun.

    I love the time I spend at NSU. It's nice to be able to go to class for a few hours, then be able to enjoy time with friends doing things like going to the recreation center, amd participating in many different organizations. The city is also very historic, and there is much to do.

    NSU is full of people and fun. Everywhere you look something is going on and people are eager for you to join. Since I have already chosen a major, it's really fun to do things with my fellow students in my department, but I have a lot of friends outside my academic department, too. During my freshman year, I did not join a sorority, but becoming friends with girls in sororities and seeing how much fun they have, I have decided to rush in the upcoming fall. So much is going on at NSU that people cannot help but get involved, have fun, and show off the spirit of NSU!!
