The Nova University of Advanced Technology was founded in a warm Florida winter in 1964 and had an inaugural class of just 17 students. It’s hard to believe that a school with such humble beginnings would go on to become Nova Southeastern University, a private non-profit university that offers its students 175 degree programs with 250 different available majors from 18 different schools and colleges. Nova, or NSU, is currently located in Davie, Florida. The Alvin Sherman Library, Research, and Information Technology Center is the largest library building in the entire state, and it is located on the Davie Campus. There are additional locations that operate in Dania Beach and North Miami. There are also a number of satellite campuses and Student Education Centers; these house computer labs, video conference necessities, and other resources for distance learners who wouldn’t otherwise have access. These are currently dotted across the state, operating in Fort Myers, Jacksonville, Kendall, Miramar, Orlando, Palm Beach Gardens, and Tampa. In 2014, one was even established in Puerto Rico.
