Nicholls State University Reviews
I had an amazing experience! The college is very big and nice and the teachers are highly qualified. The building is very big and on the cafeteria you can eat any kind of food, drinks and desserts.
I attended Nicholls State University from 1993 - 2001 and cannot say enough great things for this school. I'm in the medical field and can honestly say that I owe it all to the professors and instructors. The teachers are genuinely interested in giving their students the best education to propel them through to the top in their field. Thanks Nicholls State, you're the best. Unsurpassed!
