It is a dedicated organization, with almost daily activities planned, to meet neighbors and give back to their community. Newcomers Club works with Nossi so we can help document the HolidayFest events including Tree Lighting Ceremonies and athletic events including the Indian Loop 5K. We are sending two students to Monthaven’s Christmas Tree Elegance Ceremony on Nov 17 – we hope you can come out and join us!

Nashville and the surrounding communities have been supportive of Nossi College and the impact we wanted to make on this area, so in return, we wanted to feature 45 acts of thankfulness.

WRITTEN BY: lfunke

FAQ Nossi Master’s Program  When does the first class start? We plan on beginning the first Master’s Class in January 2019 with our Spring Semester Launch How many people do you expect to accept for this first class? Our first class will be limited in size, and we do not expect to accept more than 8-10 total students as we want a good balance when it comes to the student to teacher ratio. Is this an online program? Kind of – we offer half of the program online and half of the program will be on campus. We have found a mix of in-person collaboration and online discussion is the best way to learn this program and be attractive to businesses once you graduate. It is imperative to meet and connect with like-minded people in this career field. How much is the application fee? Our application fee is $100, and you can complete your application here. Is financial aid offered for the Master’s program? We do have financial aid opportunities available for those who qualify. To learn more, please reach out to admissions@nossi.edu.

International Travel – Nossi’s First Study Abroad Trip Was a Success!

WRITTEN BY: lfunke

Nossi College introduced our first study abroad trip to Ecuador in 2018. With an itinerary to check out the local scene and connect with the community, this group spent eight days on an international adventure. Nashville powerhouse photographer (and luckily also an amazing Nossi instructor), Sheri Oneal and 12 eager photo students share their journey. The images are gorgeous, students were a little sunburned, but everyone came back on top of the world after this amazing adventure. Below are photos from photo students and excerpts from Sheri Oneals’ blog. Read more of Sheri’s blog here. Nossi’s Photo Program Day 8! As our journey comes to an end, we are very grateful for the experience and especially, the honor of being the first Nossi College of Art study abroad group!   “It was really nice to feel a bond with the folks over there, but also with the students. We learned a lot about each other.” “There are things about each of us that no one may ever know, but our stories and experiences often help others feel connected.” To discover more about the pros and cons of travel and how cultural differences made for the best memories throughout the journey, visit Sheri’s website here.  Day 7! [Photography by: Alexandra Cale, Emma Wilson and Michiah Posey] This day was particularly special because we knew it was our last day exploring Ecuador and we were determined to enjoy all we could, even along our 4-hour drive back to Guayaquil, where we will fly…
