Why Study At NSU?
South Florida Living

Imagine wearing shorts and flip-flops year-round, taking trips to the beach, experiencing diverse cultures, and surrounding yourself with some of the best weather in the world. Sounds pretty good, doesn’t it? Guess what? That’s the place NSU calls home.

Between undergraduate and graduate programs, NSU offers more than 150 different degrees, but for some people, the degrees that matter most are found on a thermometer. So how does 77°F sound? That’s the average temperature in South Florida. That means, when you’re not in class, you can be outdoors the entire year. You’ll need that time to experience everything South Florida has to offer. There’s hiking, biking, fishing, boating, scuba diving, and windsurfing.

Fort Lauderdale Beach is 15 minutes to the east, and the Everglades are 15 minutes in the other direction. You can be on South Beach in Miami in about 30 minutes. In about three hours, you can be enjoying yourself at one of Orlando’s theme parks or chilling in the Florida Keys. For sports fans, there’s FINS Football with the Miami Dolphins, baseball, basketball, and hockey. For foodies, there’s everything from casual waterfront dives to world-class gourmet cuisine. And, if you view shopping as a competitive sport, then South Florida is the Olympics, with everything from funky flea markets to outlet malls and some of the world’s most exclusive shops and boutiques, all just minutes from campus.

NSU offers many opportunities to make friends, get involved in organizations and clubs (more than 100 to choose from), play intramural sports (flag football, dodgeball, bowling, badminton, racquetball, basketball, volleyball, ultimate Frisbee, golf, tennis, soccer, softball, and more), join a pre-professional society to kick start your resume, and volunteer for community projects (helping others is a tradition at NSU). It all begins with meeting other students and faculty members during the helpful New Student Orientation program. From then on, whether it’s pledging a fraternity or sorority; being a leader in student government; taking yoga, kickboxing, or Pilates classes; or just hanging out with your friends at the Flight Deck Pub, you will be welcomed into NSU’s caring and supportive university community. NSU has all the elements of a classic, traditional college. Visit www.nova.edu/student-life for more information on clubs and organizations.

I'm looking forward to
