The Student Life Achievement Awards

STUEY's

The Student Life Achievement Awards, affectionately known as the "STUEY's," is an annual celebration of NSU’s best in Academic Excellence, Student Centered, Integrity, Innovation, Opportunity, Scholarship/Research, Diversity, and Community.

More than a decade ago, it was the vision of Brad Williams, Ed.D., Vice President of Student Affairs and Dean of the College of Undergraduate Studies, to create a celebration to recognize those who further a sense of campus community. Thus, the Student Life Achievement Awards were born. While the world finds itself in difficult times, both politically and economically, Nova Southeastern University has never been stronger and the sense of campus community continues to grow and flourish. This event is a celebration of the hundreds of activities designed to enrich the overall student experience of the NSU community.
