Nova Southeastern Sharks - Mascot - Sharks

Sharks

Upon completion of their reclassification period Nova Southeastern University wanted to complete its rebranding. In 2005, the administration put together a school wide contest to help create a new name for NSU athletics. After many rounds of voting the university decided on Sharks. NSU is the only college athletic team to use the mascot Sharks. The shark mascot has become more than just an athletic logo, but also a symbol for the university. The Shark mascot has help brand Nova Southeastern University's identity.

Famous quotes containing the word sharks:

    Nobody had ever instructed him that a slave-ship, with a procession of expectant sharks in its wake, is a missionary institution, by which closely-packed heathen are brought over to enjoy the light of the Gospel.
    Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811–1896)

    They will tell you tough stories of sharks all over the Cape, which I do not presume to doubt utterly,—how they will sometimes upset a boat, or tear it in pieces, to get at the man in it. I can easily believe in the undertow, but I have no doubt that one shark in a dozen years is enough to keep up the reputation of a beach a hundred miles long.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
