University Representative Logan Curtis
I am the University Representative for Northeastern State University. I graduated
from NSU in May of 2020, so I’m very eager to share my experiences with prospective
Moving away from Broken Bow was a tough decision that I made in 2016. I was accepted into the Honors Program here at NSU and knew it was an opportunity that I could not pass up, despite being 200 miles away from the only place that I called home. It was a wonderful surprise when I learned that everyone that I met here in Tahlequah was just as welcoming and inviting as a person could be.
During my undergraduate years at NSU, the University changed from being my school to my home. By that I mean the friends I made and the relationships I forged have impacted my life in a way that I did not think possible when I was fresh out of high school. Not only is the campus and city of Tahlequah a beautiful place visually, the people, organizations and opportunities present the same amount of splendor.
Ultimately, regardless of where you decide to attend, it is important to enjoy every second of it. This is an exciting, scary, and unpredictable part of your life and it will go by faster than you could ever imagine. So be sure to enjoy it.
If you have any questions about NSU, feel free to reach out to me. I would be thrilled to talk to you about what you can expect from this journey.

FAVORITE ASPECT OF NSU:
Of all the great things NSU offers, my favorite would have to be the amount of different organizations for students to join. If you are interested in something, there is a great chance a group on campus already exists that embodies that interest. If not, it only takes five people and an advisor to start it yourself.
FAVORITE SPOT ON CAMPUS:
My favorite place to be at NSU would be our fitness center, commonly referred to as The FIT. I honestly feel as though I made just as many friends exercising and playing intramural sports at The FIT than I did anywhere else. The FIT has an enormous variety of equipment and locations that any fitness goal can be achieved there.
FAVORITE NSU SPORT:
My favorite sport at NSU to attend is RiverHawk Basketball. The size of the stadium allows most seats to be filled, making every game a loud, festive occurrence. We are a competitive team always fighting for a playoff spot, making every game exciting.
ADVICE TO PROSPECTIVE STUDENTS:
Of all things I would tell students, the most important aspect of college is to take your courses seriously. It's fantastic to make friends and join organizations, but time always needs to be set aside to ensure that all fo your classwork is finished. One of the worst things a college student can do is get behind on their classes early,. Also, don't be afraid to ask your professors for help if you need it. They are more than happy to help.
