Life 101... Personally Speaking is an informal interview program hosted by:

NSU professor

The overall goal of “Life 101” is to bring leaders from business, entertainment, politics and athletics to our campus. By meeting these guest speakers, the NSU community is educated and inspired by their life accomplishments and “life lessons” learned along the way. The interactive, 60-minute interview program is hosted by a faculty member and allows students and the University community to ask questions directly to the guest at the end of the program.
