Nova Southeastern University Reviews

Dom 3/16/2020

Nova is a beautiful place. A beautiful place to put yourself in more debt than your degree will even be worth. Nova is a business, it’s all about money in the end. With the pandemic that is happening as I write this, 100s of people have been laid off without work indefinitely with NO PAY. But students get paid for their time. Not temps. This university needs to do some serious re-evaluating if it’s ethics.

I loved the small class sizes at Nova Southeastern University. I had the ability to connect with fellow students. The professors were very caring and always willing to help. Being a student at Nova Southeastern University afforded me many opportunities to become involved in research and other community activities. Nova provides numerous opportunities for internships, research and practicum experiences.
