The Food Bar: The New King of Shark Dining

The Food Bar offers several dining options which are desperately needed at the food court. The Culinary Table offered students a prefixed menu of limited variety. If you did not like what they served that day you were simply out of luck and forced to dine elsewhere. With the Food Bar, you get the opportunity to choose from a wide and rich menu. Anyone who dines at the Food Bar will immediately notice the variety of food they offer, first glances will remind customers of the Chicken Grill or Greens etc. but the similarities end there.

Nevil Shute’s “On the Beach”

The book draws remarkable parallels to more contemporary novels on the subject, like Cormac McCarthy’s “The Road”, which follows a father and son travelling through the desolated landscape of a ruined Earth. Though it lacks the rampant irradiated landscape of Shute’s novel, the ecological collapse of both novels is clear, and the aftermath of a world where the nukes have begun to fly is both desolate and grim.

Must See Movies on SUTV 96

Car chases, hunger games, and….lace dollies? If like most students, you spent your summer break away from NSU campus, you missed out on Channel 96’s summer movie line-up. Fortunately for all the movie buffs out there, Channel 96 has introduced a new On Demand program, allowing students to watch last month’s movies whenever they want online.

Become a Certified Scuba Diver at NSU

Scuba diving can now be checked off the list of exciting programs at NSU, thanks to the new academic diving program. This program offers scuba diving training for academic credit as well as for recreation purpose.
The Introduction to Scuba Diving (MBIO 4900), was added to the course catalog this summer. The course is a three-credit hour elective from Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences. Students become certified divers at the end of the course. There is a $200 lab fee, which covers boat fees, lake dives, books and other materials needed for the class.
