Jonah Daniels What I love about NNU is that there is place for everyone. No matter what you do or what you are into you will find people who have similar interests. I also love that people from all over come together and like it so much, most tend to stick around. So NNU has to be doing something right. —Jonah Daniels, NCHS '17

The Good Life

We have some unique traditions and campus characters you might not find elsewhere. With more than 40 student clubs and organizations contributing to our campus life (ranging from Art Club to the Journey’s Outdoors Club), and quirky traditions like Fresheree (our annual talent show) and Mr. NNU (like the Miss America pageant, except with dudes), you’ll find enough student-life options to keep you involved and entertained for all four years.
