Here are just some of the awesome programs available to you at NSU:

  • More than 50 clubs and organizations, including academic, cultural, service, athletic, special interest, faith-based and more.
  • A wide variety of intramural sports, including softball, flag football, basketball, volleyball and more.
  • Campus Activities Board: a student-led organization that promotes student engagement through programs and special events.
  • Wellness programs such as fitness classes and monthly educational programs.
  • Multi-cultural events: With students from a wide variety of cultures and backgrounds, we’re proud to support all students in a warm, welcoming environment of mutual respect.  Throughout the year, special events, on and off campus, give students an opportunity to meet new people and broaden their perspectives.


Your NSU life begins with Welcome Week.  Here’s where you’ll meet other new students and dive into all of the excitement and fun on campus. And wait ‘til you experience your first Gypsy Days.  It’s a carnival and homecoming all rolled into one. So come to NSU. We can’t wait to meet you!



Staying healthy is fun at NSU.

Work out. Play a sport. Take a wellness class. You can do it all at NSU. Our Student Recreation Center is a 3,500 square-foot facility that’s open seven days a week to serve our students and faculty. It houses a gymnasium, dance studio and aerobic room. Recreation Center staff members are on hand to answer your questions about how to get fit and stay healthy.

Interested in playing a sport? We’ve got you covered. The intramural program is a great way to stay fit and make new friends. Just drop by the center and talk to one of the staff. They'll help you find the intramural sport you're looking for! Some of our intramurals include softball, flag fooball, volleyball, basketball, dodgeball and disc golf.
