College History

History

Although a school was founded on May 7, 1851, as the Cherokee National Female Seminary, it was not until statehood that the school now known as Northeastern State University commenced operations. On March 6, 1909, the State Legislature of Oklahoma passed an act providing for the creation and location of Northeastern State Normal School at Tahlequah, Oklahoma, and for the purchase from the Cherokee Tribal Government of the building, land, and equipment of the Cherokee Female Seminary. The name changed to Northeastern State Teachers' College in 1921. In the 1950s Northeastern emerged as a comprehensive state college, broadening its curriculum at the baccalaureate level to encompass liberal arts subjects and adding a fifth year program designed to prepare master teachers for elementary and secondary schools. In 1974, the Oklahoma Legislature authorized that the name of the institution be changed from Northeastern State College to Northeastern Oklahoma State University and then again in 1985 to Northeastern State University. In 1979, NSU opened its College of Optometry, making it one of 14 schools in the United States to offer a doctorate degree in that field. Today, NSU is the fourth largest university in Oklahoma. On March 6, 2009, NSU celebrated its centennial with Founders Day celebrations.
