NSU Experience

7 years after graduating from NSU (fins up!) I can fully and confidently say my favorite aspect of my time at NSU was the unwavering support from my professors. At NSU, you are not just one of 500 students in an auditorium and that matters for your development as a person and a professional. I am still connected with several of my professors, who I can reach out to from time to time to help provide advice and guidance as I am developing into a working professional (or to just brag about myself a little!). Very few undergraduate students at other universities can say they had less than 30 students in a freshmen biology class, and several upper level classes with less than 5 students. Take advantage of this opportunity to learn from your professors, not just academically speaking, they have so much wisdom in their words and they are always eager to support us.
