Nova Southeastern University Student Handbook 1 Welcome to Nova Southeastern University and the Shark nation! During your time at NSU, you will receive a quality education that will prepare you for a rewarding future in your career, your community, and your life. You will learn from the expertise of our diverse faculty and be challenged in new ways. Over time, you will grow academically and personally as you work with professors and your peers. You will push past any limits you have set for yourself as you learn the skills that will allow you to dominate your chosen profession. Life at NSU extends well beyond the classroom, so I encourage you to explore your interests with our on-campus clubs, organizations, athletics, and internship opportunities. Your course at NSU is yours to chart, and I am confident that you will make the best choices and have enriching experiences. I urge you to keep your aim beyond your reach as you pursue your goals, guided by integrity above all. Your journey at NSU doesn’t end when you graduate, as you will always be connected to the Shark alumni family of 210,000+ strong globally—and growing! Go Sharks, and FINS UP! Sincerely, George L. Hanbury II, Ph.D. President and CEO Nova Southeastern University Message from the President
