The purpose of this recap is to keep you up-to-date on issues and media reports impacting the university and/or specific departments or centers. Click on the  name of the media outlet to read their story – stories that appeared out of the South Florida media market are in red font (some links may have expired after this page was created.)

For this time period:

  • Potential Reach of stories related to NSU were circulated to approximately 2 million viewers;
    • The estimated advertising value equivalency (AVE) of  these stories is $3.4 million;
  • For Unique Visitors Per Month (online globally), the potential viewership was approximately 8 billion.

There were a couple of situations that were a bit out of the ordinary involving NSU that garnered media attention.

  • The first involved an incident where someone was posting hateful and threatening videos online, shot at various locations in South Florida, including NSU’s Fort Lauderdale/Davie campus. As news was breaking, it was determined that it was a NSU Public Safety Officer who noticed this individual, approached him and working with Davie PD, issued a trespass warning. Davie PD then provided information to the F.B.I., which discovered this person was wanted. As the media calls started pouring in, NSU Media Relations staff worked to the media knew that it was due to the quick action of NSU’s PSD Officer and the outstanding relationship we have with Davie PD that this person was apprehended and a potentially dangerous situation was prevented.
  • The second situation involved the Number 1 ranked NSU Men’s Basketball team. Unfortunately, during a game against St. Leo University, one of the opponent’s players took a vicious “cheap shot” against an NSU player, which was caught on video. While no foul was called during the game, there was a video that went viral, as these things tend to do, and subsequently the St. Leo player was suspended by his team.

You’ll find the links to these stories, and a host of others involving NSU, below.
