NSU CommunityFest
NSU CommunityFest Logo

NSU CommunityFest is an annual festival that celebrates and connects NSU students, employees, and their families in a carnival-like atmosphere around the Gold Circle Lake.

The event was initiated and developed in 2003 by Michelle Manley, an NSU student who wanted to bring the university community together and build school spirit.

While this is a student initiated event, NSU CommunityFest is also an event that involves the collaboration of NSU staff and students, as well as community businesses and organizations. For more information on how you can get involved, we encourage you to check out the information below.
