Life 101…Personally Speaking Series brings leaders from business, entertainment, politics and athletics to our campus. By meeting these guest speakers, the NSU community is educated and inspired by their life accomplishments and “life lessons” learned along the way. The interactive, 60-minute interview program is hosted by a faculty member and allows students and the University community to ask questions directly to the guest at the end of the program.


Mark Cavanaugh was the host of the Life 101 Series from 2000-2010 located at Nova Southeastern University. It is sponsored by the Division of Student Affairs.

In-depth, he hosted these researched interviews with Janet Reno, John Walsh, Alyssa Milano, Jack McKeon, Dan Abrams, Mo Rocca, Vanessa Williams, Jason Taylor, Krist Yamaguchi, Ivanka Trump, Gabrielle Union, Lonnie Rashid, James Earl Jones, John Legend, Sanya Richards-Ross, Anthony Bourdain, Alonzo Mourning, Dwayne Johnson, Vince Papale, Jamie-Lynn Discala, Max Weinberg, Michael Phelps, and Kyle Maynard.
