The Good Life

With more than 40 student clubs and organizations contributing to our student life (ranging from Art Club to the Journey’s Outdoors Club), and fun, quirky traditions like Fresheree (our annual no-talent-required talent show) and Mr. NNU (like the Miss America pageant, except with dudes), you’ll find enough options to keep you involved and engaged for all four years.
