NSU Experience

My time at NSU Halmos College of Natural Science and Oceanography was some of the best of my life. The faculty is excellent and knows how to prepare students for a future in the sciences. From the perspective of a medical student at the end of my 1st year, I can say without a shadow of a doubt that my choices in undergrad have served me well in my career path so far. Taking advantage of honors coursework and advanced biological sciences offered by the college (such as histology and cellular and molecular biology) made the 60+ credits of M1 year entirely more manageable. For future students, I highly recommend taking classes outside of your comfort zone. Challenge yourself. By putting in the extra work now, you’ll be amazed to see how ahead of the game you are when you enter your graduate or professional education or when you enter the workforce.
