What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am contrite for enrolling at this apathetic university to gain competence in mental health counseling. I am not sure how exactly they made it into the top 20 ranking of online programs, but their online CHMC program is a waste of finance, energy and health. 90% of the "professors" are unorganized and unconcerned about their student's education. I am baffled that at a graduate level, we are asked to watch you-tube clips from the 80s then given middle school level school level prompts on how to solve the problem in the insipid you-tube clip. "Stupid is as stupid does", I assume. The only reassurance I have gathered from this uninspiring university is that obtaining a PhD is not only possible but borderline easy. Either that is the case, or I am not quite sure where these "professors" received their doctorates from. Walmart, maybe?

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Though I have only completed one year at NSU I feel like my experience would definitely help HS seniors decide on whether or not NSU is the right school. Overall I have experienced many positives attending NSU. As a pre-dental student, I have received a great amount of shadowing hours at the dental clinic as well as great research opportunities. Due to the small class sizes, you have a more personalized connection and can form great relationships with your professors, which is how I gained most of my research and internships opportunities and have wonderful letters of recommendation. The location is great because you are a good distance from the ft.lauderdale beach, sawgrass mills mall, and other wonderful Soflo sites. I HIGHLY recommend that you bring a car if you're going to live on campus, it is often very dead and most students go to the beach, downtown or other wonderful FL sites during the weekend or breaks. If not befriend someone with a car, I'll just say if you don't have the transportation you'll get VERY bored. You do have to be very careful driving around not only Davie but Soflo in general due to the high population of college students and crazy drivers in general. Though there were many positives, I would have to say that there are a handful of cons that makes me want to transfer. To begin with, NSU is very EXPENSIVE and yes I knew this going in, I did receive a good dean scholarship which I am grateful for, however, I do live at home and might have to live on campus which is around $10,000-$15,000 annually!! One of the BIGGEST CONS is that there are MANY hidden fees/things that are swept under the rug. An example being the razors program scholarships, on paper it looks great "$22k a year for a school that is $28k-30k that is a wonderful scholarship program!!" but here's the catch you HAVE to live on campus or you wouldn't receive it and living expenses aren't included through this program plus you must live in the MOST expensive dorms. Yes! you'll have a $22k scholarship but add on about $15k to your remaining $6k of tuition. I know this because I received razors global which I declined due to this catch and one of my closest friends who are part of razors leadership had to take out over $10k in loans and shes only 18. Besides the price another con that has been affecting me emotionally is the poor retention rate, due to the high cost and the average freshman taking out multiple loans, many transfers after their first year. WHich has affected me negatively because most of the friends that I have made during shark preview and orientation transferred due to the price and or lack of school spirit and now I am quite lonely. Another con that doesn't really bother me but might and has gotten to others is the school spirit, overall participation, and party life. NSU is a pretty academic school and the students are very focused since most of them are on the pre-health track. This sometimes leads to poor school spirit, very poor turnout to events, non-existent parties, and overall lackluster participation which is another reason why MANY students transfer to a bigger uni. Overall I absolutely love the academic experience and Opportunites that NSU have provided me. Unfortunately, due to the high cost and me potentially having to live on campus, I decided to transfer to a state school to save money. I know this is a private school however I do feel like the prices are VERY unnecessary and are not always upfront. PLEASE READ: what I'll recommend for anyone who would like to attend NSU and is not from a well-off family is to PLEASE APPLY to scholarships if you are a Florida resident BRIGHT FUTURES is the way to go,and DO NOT TAKE OUT LOANS!!! if you have to take out loans to attend this school NSU IS NOT FOR YOU. Trust me the loans from this school would haunt you and I'm lucky enough not to have taken any out before transferring.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think the school has been great so far. The professor's are accommodating and regularly reply to questions and emails. The environment is welcoming and safe. I feel like I am getting a quality education. We use Canvas to complete and upload assignments. So far, the software has been extremely user friendly and allows for quick communication with other students and professors.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, NSU is on the smaller side. It's not very spirited since we don't have our own football team and instead just partner with the Miami Dolphins to go to their games. NSU students are more focused on academics and the different programs offered that are academic-related rather than partying and living the typical college experience. The class sizes are good since they are small, however, this sometimes makes it difficult to be able to choose your preferred class since classes often fill up very fast (even before regular registration opens if you're not an honors student!). The food places offered are not chain-restaurants like those found in bigger universities but they still cover the basics. NSU has a variety of clubs and organizations, yet it is hard to get a lot of attendance at most of them since, again, students are more academically focused and often leave campus on weekends.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Nova Southeastern University is a facility that allows all student the opportunity to receive real-life experiences and involve themselves in a unique manner. The collaboration between faculty and undergraduate students was very appealing to me since like NSU faculty to student ratio which is 17:1, the same ratio was applied during my time at my high school. In addition to this, along with the faculty-student ratio and the small classes, the importance of community and the rigorous curriculum have further sparked my interest in being an NSU shark. I’ve seen firsthand how faculty, students and alumni engage with the surrounding community through several different projects, clinical programs and community-based research and resources.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

If you're not a science/biology major trying to become a doctor, this school is not for you. A lot of us end up switching out of the science major within the first year, because the faculty never fully teach us what we need to know to succeed. Students come here because they fall in love with the idea of the school and the people here are amazing. The academics and food come 3rd and 4th.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Nova Southeastern University is a great school located in Southern Florida right outside of Fort Lauderdale. They have many different majors and degrees for undergrads. They also have a great grad program including one of the only colleges in America with a D.O. and M.D. program.
