  • This college is full of teachers who believe in the success of their students. It has beautiful campuses and lots to offer for many fields of study. If you are considering a college, I would recommend NSU to anyone. 💚
  • I LOVED my time at NSU! It is seriously such a great university! It's big enough to meet new people everyday, but small enough to know people anywhere you go and get really involved. The student to professor ratio is really great and you can have a good relationship with the professors. There are so many fun things that NSU does for its students and so many ways to get involved. It is a beautiful campus and you just know that everyone there really cares about you. SO much love for NSU and the amazing time I had there. GO RIVERHAWKS!!
