NSU Congratulates H.S. Graduation Class of 2021
From all of us at Northeastern State University, we could not be more excited about your recent graduation! Parents and guardians, I know that you have worked just as hard to see your high school student make it to this milestone.
As a result of the pandemic, many of your recent graduates are still deciding your next steps and I personally wanted to let you know that there is still time to apply to NSU for the Fall 2021 semester at apply.nsuok.edu. Additionally, there are some scholarships still available by visiting scholarships.nsuok.edu.
NSU’s application process is simple and easy, allowing you to apply without submitting essays or letters of recommendation. We also make submitting test scores optional; you only need to submit your test scores to be considered for scholarships. Following your acceptance, we look forward to seeing you at SOAR, your Student Orientation, Advising and Registration appointment. Here you will meet classmates, collaborate with your advisor to enroll in classes, and determine next steps needed for financial aid and housing. You will also gain the tools necessary to make your high school to college transition successful. To our future RiverHawks who have already been admitted, congratulations! Don’t forget to schedule your SOAR appointment soon at www.nsuok.edu/soar.
As Green Country’s affordable university with an average class size below 30, NSU offers the perfect balance of both a quality and affordable education that is close to home. With smaller class sizes, your professors are able to get to know who you are, care about what you want to accomplish. Your goals will become our goals. Whether you are eager to turn your passion into a career or would like to explore different degree options, we have a path for you. NSU offers over 55 bachelor’s degree programs, opportunities to study abroad, immersive-learning experiences, as well as advisors ready to guide you through each step along the way. We even have accelerated degree programs that help fast-track your degree attainment.
Beyond the classroom, NSU is proud to have over 100 student organizations and clubs for you to choose from. There are also numerous on-campus events and activities which is where many of your best college memories will be made. I want to encourage you to follow @Go2NSU on your favorite social media platforms to see and experience life on campus. Adjoining the south end of NSU’s campus is Tahlequah’s thriving downtown which is home to restaurants, music venues, unique boutiques, salons and Norris Park which is home to several annual festivals (www.tahlequahmainstreet.com). I invite you to experience for yourself the reasons why Tahlequah is rated one of America’s Top Small Towns.
Our Tahlequah campus was established in 1889 in the heart of the Cherokee Nation. We enjoy the scenic and recreational beauty of being situated in the foothills of the Ozark Mountains, as well as alongside the Illinois River and Lake Tenkiller, providing you with a multitude of outdoor activities.
We invite you to tour our beautiful campus which predates Oklahoma statehood; explore historic buildings as well as state of the art labs, clinics and classrooms; get a feel for life on campus; and meet your new RiverHawk family (www.nsuok.edu/AboutUs/CampusTours.aspx).
Again, I would like to offer my congratulations on your recent high school graduation and I look forward to seeing you on campus soon for a campus tour. If you would like to speak with an NSU University Representative, please call 918.444.4675 or email us at email@example.com.
