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.

NSU academic advisers: Are they really that helpful?

All NSU students have had the opportunity to meet with his or her academic adviser. Everyone has had their own experiences and have formed their own opinions about them. I was under the impression that advisers are supposed to help us, but do they? During the registration process, scheduling process, and orientation process, oh yes, friendliness and “valuable” information is always present in an adviser’s greeting. But after that, it’s a different story.
