Siran - 6/17/2018
Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016
"I can attest that Nova Southeastern University is a good university, as my experiences with NSU are just awesome. The campus is really gorgeous, so whenever I am down and in a bad mood, I just take a walk around the golden lake of the main campus where are home to many cute animals such as squirrels and birds and I feel happy again. Based on my personal experiences, I have not met any impatient and poor professors in NSU. I am not saying they are all good, but at least my emails have been replied on time. Lots of opportunities for scholarships are provided and courses are well-organized. I have systematically trained, so my overall evaluation on the teaching quality of NSU is good, A plus."

Degree: Conflict Resolution
Graduation Year: 2017
"I proudly recommend my alma mater, NSU, to all people who plan to broaden their knowledge, sharpen their kills, and increase their income. I started my academic journey at the doctoral program in Conflict Resolution 6 years ago and got an extremely wonderful experience there. This program got many patient, charming, and knowledgeable professors who unreservedly help students drive to succeed. There are many academic interest-based groups in this program, where students can study together, discuss together, and share their research experiences together. I am not saying this program is perfect. On the contrary, there is a lot of room that they should work on. For example, some professors are too gentle and nice and they are not challenging enough on their assignment. Besides, scholarships and financial supports for doctoral students are too competitive. Compared to universities in the same region, say, University of Miami, NSU is not as generous as how UM treats their students at the doctoral level. However, it does not really fade NSU away from the title of "top-notch" university."

Degree: Conflict Resolution
Graduation Year: 2016
"I highly recommend the conflict resolution program of Nova Southeastern University to those who want to start/develop their career as educators, researchers, consultants, or organization administrators. My experiences in the master program were really good. They do have some knowledgeable professors who really care about their students. My classmates were from all different corners over the world. I super like the school climate because everybody is nice. Courses are practical. Moreover, the beautiful campus is a wonderful plus. The small class size allows professors to focus on each student. All in all, everything is nice. The only downside about the program is that fees and tuition are increasing. However, I believe it is worthy for the world class education provided by NSU."

Sarah - 5/1/2018
Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2018
"I spent this year living on campus, as a freshman, and was very excited to go here. This school was one of the worst experiences of my life, the housing is a joke and forced all freshman into triples while loud construction on the roof went on ALL year starting drilling at 7 or 8am. I lost 30lbs due to the fact that the school couldn't provide vegan options for me and got so sick I had to start eating dairy again, today I paid $10 for 2 cafeteria tacos with no drink or anything else. The academics are kind of a joke and I managed to get a 3.8 GPA without learning a thing. I know a large number of the population who are leaving the school or wish they could leave but cannot because of certain programs they're in. I would not recommend this school to anyone."

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2001
"This was a great experience with highly qualified faculty offering challenging group projects. Flexible course offerings were helpful. I have 3 degrees but this has to be one of the most attractive campuses i have ever attended. Completed the degree with strong advising support and administration was easy to work with. I am certain the the graduating class all found responsible positions by the time they graduated."

"My experience with Nova Southeastern University was great. The teachers answered any questions I had in a timely manner. The topic discussions were interesting and every one respectfully participated. Lots of reports to write. The financial aid department processed payments on time ."

Nicholas Griffin - 4/28/2017
Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2013
"NSU is a good institution and I would recommend it to incoming students. The university has new facilities, nicely manicured grounds, and wonderful professors. Unfortunately, the degree that I obtained (B.S. Biology) is more of a stepping stone to an advance degree. With it alone, the job prospects are bleak."

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2017
"NSU is a great place to learn the essential skills for a career in the communications field. All of the professors are experienced and extremely helpful. They want all of their students to succeed and constantly provide opportunities for networking and internships for students to take advantage of. There are infinite possibilities at NSU for communication studies majors."

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015
"Nova Southeastern University was an excellent school. The dedication of the professors to help the students is evident. The classes are small and interment allowing for a more successful learning environment. They have simulation labs which allow for a more interactive learning experience. This really helped when applying nursing in the hospital setting. Overall, I would highly recommend this institution to anyone pursuing their Bachelor's in Nursing degree."
