Visit Campus

One visit and you may never want to leave. At NSU, seeing is believing. That’s why we strongly encourage you to schedule a visit to campus as soon as possible. You can read the literature and see the pictures, but nothing compares to being here, live and in person.

Not only is the campus one of the most beautiful in the Midwest, but you’ll have the chance to breathe the air and feel the vibe that flows from every NSU student. Our Northern Bound Days are designed specifically for prospective students and their families.

We’ll roll out the “maroon carpet” and give you a personally guided tour of campus. While you’re here you can visit with representatives from each of NSU’s academic units, ask questions of student services and eat in the Wolves Den. In addition to Northern Bound Days, tours are available Monday through Friday. Custom tours are available, and we welcome transfer students to visit us, too. Schedule a visit today. We can't wait to see you!
