Community News

It's that time again! NSU wants to know what our students think.

Annually we send out an email invitation to participate in the “I Believe in NSU” student survey. We use the responses to continuously improve the high quality education and services we provide. On October 20, students will receive an email invitation from Credo Higher Education (our survey partner)!

When they participate, they will automatically be entered into a drawing for one of two JBL Pulse Portable Bluetooth Speakers! With this device, you can share your music with all your friends, anywhere you go!

The drawing will take place on Monday, November 17, 2014 at noon at the offices of Credo Higher Education in Whitsett, North Carolina. Prizewinners will be notified by email and all prizewinners will be featured on the "I Believe in NSU" website after December 1, 2014. Prizes will be furnished by Nova Southeastern University from its general fund. No purchase or contribution is necessary for eligibility in the drawing.

The 2014 Annual Student Survey has closed.  Two students’ names were randomly selected as winners of the two raffle prizes.  Thank you for participating in the annual survey.

The Winners are:

  • Ligia Vega (Fischler School of Education)
  • Joseph Ryan (College of Dental Medicine)
