The Office of International Students and Scholars at Nova Southeastern provides plenty of services and activities.

The annual International Education Week is an opportunity for exchange students worldwide to share with their host communities their cultures and highlight the benefits of international educational exchange programs.

You can make a difference by sharing with others your culture your history, government, language, food, holidays, school system and traditions.

It is a week of campus-wide events highlighting NSU’s international initiatives that support our mission and core values! All events are open to the entire NSU Community unless otherwise specified.

Imagine wearing shorts and flip-flops year-round, taking trips to the beach, experiencing diverse cultures, and surrounding yourself with some of the best weather in the world. Sounds pretty good, doesn’t it? Guess what? That’s the place NSU calls home.

With an average temperature of 77°F when you’re not in class, you can be outdoors all year round. You’ll need that time to experience everything South Florida has to offer. There’s sunbathing, bike riding, fishing, boating, and surfing.

You can enjoy world-class food from around the world and the best in arts and entertainment. Endless open-air festivals and concerts. There are also great shopping malls and boutiques, just minutes from campus.

For sports fans, professional teams like the Miami Heat, Miami Dolphins, Miami Marlins and Florida Panthers are all within a 30-minute drive.

It all sounds pretty good, doesn't it? Guess what? When you live on NSU’s campus, this is the place you’ll call home.Life on campus at Nova Southeastern University is like nothing you’ve ever experienced. You’ll be amazed at the many things we have to offer, like /b>modern and comfortable dorm rooms, the amazing Don Taft University Center, NCAA Division II sports, an abundance of student activities, convenient on-campus dining, hangouts like Starbucks and Einstein Bagels, plus a close-knit campus community where people welcome you with open arms.

There’s always something to do on campus, too - like the annual Anything That Floats Raft Race, Community Fest, homecoming week activities, and Shark sporting events.
