Nova Southeastern University Celebrates its 50th Anniversary Year in 2014

FORT LAUDERDALE-DAVIE, Fla. – What do First Lady Michelle Obama, TV show host Stephen Colbert, actress Courteney Cox and Nova Southeastern University (NSU) all have in common? They all turned 50 in 2014. And like our famous counterparts who were born in the same year, NSU has come a long way since it was chartered on Dec. 4, 1964.

Back then, NSU was an idea that took root in a storefront in Fort Lauderdale. It was born in 1964, thanks to a group of Broward County leaders and visionaries, and was known as Nova University of Advanced Technology. Fast-forward 50 years and that vision turned into Nova Southeastern University (after merging with Southeastern University in 1994.) It is now one of the largest private, not-for-profit universities in the United States. In fact, NSU has campuses across Florida (Tampa, Orlando, Fort Myers) and recently opened its new facility in Puerto Rico.
