Why Join the NSU Honors College?

"NSU and the Honors Program fueled my leadership and networking skills and prepared me not just for a career, but for life. The skills I gained are not part of a typical classroom experience but they are essential for any career path. I believe the faculty, staff, and student body at NSU were essential in leading me to where I am today. My success is a testament to the skills I gained at NSU—they are applicable to so many disciplines and pursuits."
