GO TO ANY OTHER SCHOOL IF POSSIBLE! TheBrightEngineering Department
GO TO ANY OTHER SCHOOL IF POSSIBLE! The office staff is lazy, rude, and rarely helpful. Teachers are OK, some good, most bad- by bad I mean they ramble on about non related course material, they teach directly from the book without adding helpful professional experience or knowledge to the lessons, or they just cancel class a lot. The facilities are new but rarely operable- frequent wifi and power outages. They love prioritizing their atheltics above education, the sports teams just got 3 new tour buses while the regular students have just 2 small shuttle buses that resemble a short bus. Student population is OK, most kids complain every class about having to actually read or do some work when the teacher asks for participation- a lot of kids don't even try to participate and just scroll on their devices. Only good thing that's happened in 3 years at this school is the distribution of iPads to kids for $1, but it's honestly the least they could do when they charge $5000+ for classes every semester

IT ISN'T WORTH THE MONEY AT ALL! NSUQuite BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
IT ISN'T WORTH THE MONEY AT ALL! NSU IS UNPROFESSIONAL! the school hires people that are not willing to do there job and take responsibility for there actions. My roommate was very disrespectful to me 1st semester, she played loud music in the room and she never would turn it down when I was doing my hw, talking to my friends on the phone, and when I was trying to go to sleep. she also make rude remarks about me and overall had a bad attitude. I had a bracelet stolen out of my room between the time she invited 5 boys to the room. I complained to my RD a few times. My RD kept telling me she will do something about it but really she didn't do anything. but at the very end of the semester she apologized to me saying that she could've done more about the issue and that she was protecting my roommate from getting moved out since she was raped last year on campus. So when I talked to my RD's supervisor and herself, she denied everything that she told me. I started to cry because this is someone I had trust in and she betrayed me by denying everything that came out of her mouth. she couldn't even look at me when I was crying because i know she felt guilty! Crazy thing is she is a pastor!!! Long story short she got away with it. TAKE MY ADVISE GO TO A DIFFERENT SCHOOL!!!
