More about Shark Fountain

Shark Fountain, an iconic focal point at Nova Southeastern University, was crafted by famed international wildlife sculptor Kent Ullberg. The fountain features a 17-foot bronze mako shark—NSU’s mascot—weighing 3,000 pounds, with 76 individually sculpted teeth. Located at the east entrance of the Don Taft University Center, Shark Fountain was originally commissioned by PAN-Student Government Association and completed in 2009.


About Commencement

Commencement is a recognition and celebration of academic achievement and the lasting contributions that students have made to the university.

Do not confuse the degree/diploma application with commencement and your regalia purchase. These are two separate processes.

Although often used interchangeably, the words Commencement and Graduation are not the same thing. It is important to understand that participating in a commencement ceremony does not mean that you have completed your degree and actually graduated.

Commencement is a formal ceremony for students who have been cleared to walk by their school or program.
