Northeastern State University’s main campus is located in a place like no other, where the Ozark Mountains roll gently across the land, offering a panorama of natural scenery filled with pines, oaks, dogwoods and redbuds that blossom each spring. Nearby the main campus runs the Illinois River, cool and clear, feeding into Lake Tenkiller, a deep, crystal lake with a shoreline of beautiful forest and spectacular rock bluffs. The countryside, river and lake create an ideal area for a wide variety of favorite outdoor activities including backpacking, camping, horseback riding, fishing, boating, scuba diving, water skiing and many others.
Within this natural setting is the city of Tahlequah, capital of the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma, where the tribe’s western migration ended in 1839. Rebuilding their civilization after relocation, the Cherokees established a progressive system of tribal government and public education. This unique history results in a rich and active heritage celebrated through Native American art and crafts, the Cherokee Village and Cherokee Heritage Center. NSU, with its 200-acre campus of beautiful lawns and large shade trees, rests in the midst of this city and surrounding countryside. NSU, founded in 1909 on the grounds of the Cherokee National Female Seminary, offers students and the community not only a tradition of excellent teaching, but also Broadway productions, concerts and guest lecturers of international fame. NSU, Tahlequah and the Tulsa metroplex, just an hour away, offer a little bit of paradise west of the Mississippi.
