Norfolk State University is a HBCU founded in 1935. The school, which is located in Norfolk, VA, took many forms but became the institution that we mostly know in 1979, which is it when it officially earned university status. Today, NSU is home to over 5,000 students. The Spartans, the school's athletic teams, play Division I and have found great success in track and field, baseball, and football.
