Life in Tahlequah

The Tahlequah campus is a blend of old and new, where rich history meets modern technology all over campus. Northeastern State University traces its roots back to the founding of the original Cherokee National Female Seminary in 1851, establishing us as a leader in education in Oklahoma.

If you want a school with a traditional college feel, you’ll enjoy your time at NSU in Tahlequah. Classes are small, people are friendly and supportive, and you’ll quickly feel at home.

Tahlequah hosts festivals and cultural events year-round, and with the Illinois River and Lake Tenkiller nearby, the area has plenty of outdoor attractions. And the easy commute to Tulsa and Fayetteville provides ample access to metro area arts, entertainment, dining, airports and shopping.
