Celebrating NSU on Founders Day

In 2015, the Board of Visitors of Norfolk State University passed a resolution formally establishing “Founders Day” events to commemorate the University’s founding on September 18, 1935. Since then, events are held annually on a day close to our anniversary date for faculty, staff, and students to pause in celebration of NSU’s rich past and promising future.
