Northeastern State University Reviews

The advisors are extremely helpful, particularly in helping me transfer from another University! Everything was fully explained from degree programs, to enrolling in classes as well as various other student aids they have available (which includes a food and clothing pantry, on- campus family housing, counseling/ grievances services and a great deal more). My professors have been top notch- intelligence, expertise and empathetic to their students. My only complaint is their narrow selection of graduate programs.

NSU has always felt like home to me. Everyone on campus, including students and staff, are always so welcoming and kind. You will never feel out of place here. I am so excited to be a Riverhawk and attend NSU in the fall of 2018. NSU offers many opportunities for you to join clubs, Greek life, and even just get out in the community more. The atmosphere of the campus and the town in general are fun and very laid back. Come to NSU! You will not regret it!
I loved Northeastern State University. It was a small college, which provided a small community feel. I enjoyed everything about the school- from the campus feel, to the local eateries, even the walkability of the town. When you aren't learning in school, NSU is always putting on fun events!
