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.
On Feb. 18, both the men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams celebrated a conference championship. Both teams led from day one of the meet and were able to hold off the opposition for victories. With conference championships under their belts, both teams are focused for nationals, which are scheduled to take place March 14-18.
