Our Alumni Forge Their Own Paths

Our low student-to-faculty ratio and community-first campus mean that you’ll make friends and mentors who will be there throughout your career.

I discovered my passion for public history and museum studies and it was during a study abroad with Dr. Kilroy that I became interested in archives and special collections, specifically.


NSU Alumni Success Stories

“Sociology was the catalyst for my career path. When I took my first sociology course and began learning about social issues and social problems, I had no clue what a career as a sociologist would be like.”

 – Sylvia D., Attorney, Social Justice Advocate and Sociology Alumna, Class of 2014

“The biology program at NSU prepared me for pharmacy school. I was able to hit the ground running and take on additional responsibilities. My fast start helped me graduate summa cum laude and make the most of my professional training. Looking back, the small class sizes were key in my professional development. They allowed me to engage with the material and my professors in a unique way.” 

– Nicholas C., Pharm.D., Pharmacist and Biology Alumnus, Class of 2008

“The faculty at NSU are extremely supportive and offer students many opportunities to gain professional work experience both on and off campus. They connected me with theatre companies and industry professionals who provided me with internships and jobs working backstage on professional shows.”

 – Calypso H., Technical Theatre Director and Theatre Alumna, Class of 2015

“Since graduating, I have worked for the Florida Panthers, Sony Music, and now Royal Caribbean Group. As a senior business analyst, I interpret patterns within sales data and present strategic recommendations to executives. There are various career options following a degree in mathematics, with the world of analytics being just one of many. I highly encourage everyone to explore this field.”

– Teodora S., Senior Business Analyst and Mathematics Alumna, Class of 2017

“I knew I wanted to pursue a career as an attorney, but my legal studies courses helped me find my calling within the legal profession in a way that I never expected.”

– Roy S., Attorney, Florida Supreme Court Certified Family Law Mediator and Legal Studies Alumnus, Class of 1997

“I had no idea what I wanted to do walking into NSU, but with the guidance of the professors in this department, I found my true passion: chemistry. The excitement that exudes off the professors inside and outside of lectures and labs is unrivaled. Not only did I gain exceptional laboratory and research experience, but also lifelong mentors and role models. The guidance and passions of the professors of the Chemistry Department at NSU remain the reason why I have chosen to pursue a Ph.D.”

– Amanda C., Ph.D. Candidate and Chemistry Alumna, Class of 2018
