Welcome to Shark Preview!

Welcome to Virtual Shark Preview, future Sharks! We wish you could have been here on campus with us to dive in, fins first to NSU for the complete Shark Preview experience. 

As an admitted student for the Fall 2021 semester, we encourage you to use this space as a resource to explore the NSU Shark Life and stay connected with your admissions counselor and other important campus resources. From all of us at Nova Southeastern University, we're so happy you're here. Fins up!
