  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)

NSU is a nice school where you feel safe.
Tayla from Tulsa, OK
NSU is a great college to be at. The classes are small, so there is a more student-teacher connection than most colleges can provide. The campus is small, but it promotes student connections.
Benjamn from Haileyville, OK
N.S.U. is an affordable college that has some great teachers in the English and Linguistics departments. They also have tons of clubs, ranging from the every day fraternities and sororities to the NEWTS (Northeastern Wizards Teaching Service) club that focuses on charity fundraising! There are many opportunities to become a stronger, better you at N.S.U!
