Congratulations on your admission
to Nova Southeastern University!
NSU is filled with academic excellence, culture, tremendous students and dynamic professors - everything you imagine and more in a college experience. NSU is constantly seeking out cutting edge opportunities which will enhance your academic experience for example the Center for Collaborative Research, which opened in September 2016, will house the NSU Cell Therapy Institute. Only at NSU do you have the opportunity to take advantage of such a rich learning environment of all 8 undergraduate Colleges, 50+ majors, and access to world-class graduate programs but at the same time have an average class size of only 15 students to provide you deeper discussions where professors and students get to know each other.
In addition to academics, you have been selected to join a vibrant campus community with tremendous opportunties to become involved outside of the classroom. Whether part of The Razor's Edge Scholars groups, performing and visual arts, service clubs, living on campus, FINS Football or athletics, NSU students are involved and make a difference. At NSU, your education is as personal as you are.
