  • I am a current student here

    I am actually a current student at NSU. Although next term with only be my second semester, I feel as though NSU is my second home.Everyone is extremely helpful and friendly at NSU. Commuting back and forth, from school to home, I thought I was going to have a difficult time becoming involved; but there are clubs even for commuters. I have also taken part in the Art Sharks club, Student Success, Dual admissions and Super sharks! At first, I have to admit I was a bit scared about the transition from high school to college, but all worries were lifted once I started. Professors are willing to take the time to help you in anyway possible. Staff is always there to assist you. Also, there are tons of programs and opportunities to ask questions if you are confused about ANYTHING!

    caveat emptor the vast majority of instructors are fair and some are really bright. however the school is not fully aware of affirmative action, civil rights, and they sadly don't stand behind gay students to reflect current civil rights law.

    If you have the option, do not live on campus. There is nothing to do on the weekends here and the people are not very friendly. A car is a must! The dorms are nice compared to others colleges', though.
