What impressed you positively?

"Everything was impressive. The Campus is beautiful and high tech. Palm trees line the driveways, computers are everywhere and monitors hang from the ceiling in every lab. Technology is obviously integrated into a strong curriculum that prepares the student early for the interaction with patients (IGC, integrated generalist curriculum). Harvey, a manikin that mimics heart and lung sounds is available to all students and gives an edge to NSU students with regard to auscultation skills. Nothing I could say describes the new library, IT IS AWSOME! Wireless web and laptop computers for check out. The faculty and staff are committed to the betterment of the student. Overall the facility and program exceeded every expectation! The students are happy and very supportive of interviewee’s, they boosted my confidence and made me less nervous! Thank you to Lynne Cawley for your “pep” talk and making me feel welcome. Also thank you to Mary, Dr. Simpson, Dr. Greber and Dr. Aye and the students of NSUCOM, I enjoyed the time I spent with you all. I can’t wait to study at NSUCOM. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The exercise facility needs some work. However a new complex is to be constructed very soon! If half as much attention is placed into the design and construction of the exercise facility as was placed into the library the place will be spectacular. Bally’s is across the street." Report Response
