More than 100 NSU students, faculty members, and administrators from across the university gathered on Oct. 18 for the annual Dual Admission Program Reception, hosted by the Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences. The event recognized the outstanding undergraduate and graduate students who participate in the distinguished program.

The Dual Admission Program allows highly qualified undergraduate applicants to secure early acceptance to a selection of the university’s master’s and professional degree programs. Offering more than 30 undergraduate and graduate degree pairings, the program serves 490 undergraduate and graduate students.

Speaking at the reception were Don Rosenblum, Ph.D., dean of the Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences; George L. Hanbury II, Ph.D., president of NSU; and Mariam Haroun, a Dual Admission graduate student in her fourth year at NSU’s College of Dental Medicine. Haroun provided the students with strategies for success, such as prioritizing your goals, shadowing professionals during your undergraduate study, and continuing to challenge yourself. She also encouraged students to join professional societies and organizations at NSU.

Haroun left the Dual Admission students with three pivotal pieces of advice: “Number one: time management. Number two: time management. Number three: time management.”

Following the formal presentations, undergraduate students had the opportunity to meet and network with graduate Dual Admission students, as well as faculty members and administrators representing the various colleges and professional schools associated with the program.
