A portion of the evening’s proceeds will go directly to support activities of the NSU Visual and Performing Arts program — theatre, music and visual arts. In addition, this taste and mingle event provides our Tourism and Hospitality Management students with valuable experience. When the NSU Foundation, Inc., determined to establish Taste of NSU, we set our sights on raising funds for a worthy cause in an entertaining setting. Beyond that, however, we wanted to introduce an inviting event that brings together Hampton Roads community groups, churches and businesses to share an evening with the NSU community and raise awareness of our University as a world-class facility and Virginia’s largest historically black university, which is celebrating more than 80 years of educational excellence.
