It's a blessing to attend one of Florida's top private schools. This school gives their students all the resources possible to acheive beyond their capacity. I've always said that if you don't make it at Nova, it's because you didn't put in the effort. The staff all across really care for their students. Professors are all easy going, professional, helpful and approachable. There's no such thing as assistant professors at this institution. You have real professors that practice what they teach for a living. Nova is hands down the best school ever!

I haven't visit Nova Southeastern University campus yet, however I went to a college fair and Nova Southeastern University was there, and I love the information I received. I also browsed around online, and look at their campus and there surroundings and I loved what I seen. I'm a senior in high school and looking forward to being a college student at Nova Southeastern University!
I went to Nova University with my Health Science class. It was honestly the best experience I've had at a university. I was left with my jaw-dropped. I wanted to stay and never leave. I wouldn't change anything about the school because the students were very helpful and answered all my questions. The materials they used were amazing, they had dummies ("patients") who actually breathed and could give labor!
