Nova Southeastern University Reviews
My experience at NSU so far has been amazing. There are small class sizes, apartment -style dormitory options, and many great scholar programs. Being a part of the programs has opened many doors for me. My program affiliations allow me to earn my Masters Degree in Elementary Education in just 4 years! Professors at this school get to know YOU. NSU is a private university, whose student body is mostly made up of Biology majors. The diversity on campus reaches a global range. The university is located in Florida, and it is attended by students all the way from California, Brazil, Trinidad and Tobago, Denmark, etc. There are no parties on campus but plenty things to do in the surrounding area of Fort Lauderdale and Miami. Athletics are Division II.
Nova Southeastern University is a great university! During my semesters here at NSU, the professors were very helpful. I was transferring from Broward College and they helped me to navigate online and figure out what internships and research opportunities were available to me on-camps and outside of school. Also, the campus is excellent with public safety. Any time i found myself study late hours they would escort me back to my dorm/apartment which was a little far from campus.
As a Senior at Nova Southeastern University (NSU), and a student that will be graduating this fall, I have loved the entire experience. From the professors to the coursework to the opportunities I have had. I was able to conduct research alongside my professor and even got the opportunity to present at our school's undergraduate symposium! It was a great and wonderful experience! The University has done a great job with safety and security and I have felt very safe on campus, even when I took a class at night. As far as attaining education is concerned, the environment of the school has been conducive to my overall learning; as I've adapted the skills to learn and study more effectively throughout the semester and for the designed coursework. All in all, a great school and a great environment for learning!
