What is your overall opinion of this school?

This was a very comfortable school to attend, however, that came at a price. There are many other schools one could choose for such a price, so why go to NOVA? The professors are fantastic! Knowledgable, no one takes advantage of their office hours, research opportunities, and generally speaking, all the staff are polite and interesting. Give the campus a visit, come with questions, and see for yourself.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think that Nova is a great school and a beautiful campus. The teachers are there to help you and class sizes are small. Everyone I have met at this school has been friendly. There is a lot of diversity here and everyone is super focused on their studies. This school is very scholarly, the students care a lot about their studies. The food is not too great but it is do-able. Every building on campus is beautifully breathtaking and classes are usually all close-by. The sports here are not really that big, we don't even have a football team.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Resourceful is the most fitting word I can think of to describe NSU. With over 150 degree programs NSU aims to offer a diverse array of meta-majors while maintaining a highly engaging and quality level curriculum. Professors are well-versed in their field of study and bring an assortment of experiences to each class. The University encourages student interaction and real world application of the concepts taught. My program in particular shy's away from the proverbial practice of 'book work' and focuses moreso on simulation activities. When I graduate from NSU there's no doubt in my mind that I'll have off the tools necessary to be successful.

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.
