Nazareth College is super cool! Everyone at the school and everyone who talks about it or recommends it take note of how nice everyone is. The staff I've met are excellent and seem extremely well versed in their subjects. The food is pretty average for a college, same with the dorms, but its cozy and there's always good conversation around.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Nazareth College is a really great school. The school has a very welcoming atmosphere especially during orientation. Most professors are incredible at the school. They care lots about their students and their success. Professors at Nazareth all check their email regularly so it is easy to reach them if you need help. Most professors also keep consistent office hours so that students can drop by for help if they need it. The campus is located near Rochester so there are plenty of things you can find to do around campus, but there always seems to be something happening on campus so you don't have to leave to find something to do in your free time. The biggest downsides to Nazareth is the food and the cost. The school is a private college so the tuition reflects that aspect. They give a good amount of scholarship but it can still be a bit pricey for some. The food on campus isn't great. The dining hall food is the worst, but there are many other dining options on campus in several different buildings that are better than the dining hall.

This is my first year at this school, and it feels like a good fit for me. The most popular professions include health and service, education, and arts. There are wonderful facilities such as Peckham hall, the rehabilitation building, as well as many others.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

There are of course the things that you would expect to see at a college: drugs, alcohol, parties, and frat boy types. Those are just unavoidable. It's a small campus, but, hey, there are tunnels that go to almost every building on campus. It's very much a part of the culture to hold a door open for people. The student population is generally devoted to diversity and inclusion of all ideas and ways of life.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I attend Nazareth College because it has a unique mix of the big city feel while remaining quaint and comfortable since it is a rather small campus. Since it is nestled in the heart of Pittsford activities are always available off-campus. Some of the most popular examples are Pittsford Dairy, the Canal Path, the local library with the attached Starbucks cafe, and Rochester's Vinyl nightclub. On campus, the college handles political activism in an active and open-minded way with forums held for political discussion for big topics such as growing anti-semitism, racial diversity, and religious freedom. The campus also has a diverse array of extracurriculars with college level Hockey and Swimming for the more professional athlete, as well as, black light dodgeball and Quidditch for the more casual participants. All around, Nazareth College offers a warm welcome with incredible opportunities for students of all backgrounds and I am proud to be a Golden Flyer.

Overall, Nazareth College is a great school. I feel at home whenever I'm there and am given a great support system of friends and faculty. Nazareth is a great fit for those who are looking for a smaller, yet active school in various programs and one that provides great opportunities for their students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Nazareth is a place that welcomes diversity, the arts, sports, and more. Naz is the kind of place you won't feel homesick at. We are our own little world, a family that fosters growth, encourages exploration, and throws one hell of an end of semester Springfest! Naz is home to beautiful, blooming intellectuals from all walks of life. We value our students in unique ways unlike other schools. Naz is a forever home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Nazareth College is an okay college. The professors can be hit or miss. The class sizes are of good size which allows students to get to know the professor. They offer a variety of classes, but not at various times which can cause some scheduling issues.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I attended Nazareth College to be in the Doctor of Physical Therapy program. Long story short: I am an introverted person, I work best studying alone and working on my own. Although I managed to get by my first 3 years fine being on the deans list most semesters (given there was a lot of opportunity to work solo), I struggled through my 4th year when we started our clinical coursework. Not only was it a huge course load, nearly everything we did had to be done as a group. Being myself this was a struggle and it made it even harder because I felt this particular group of PT students was cliquey and I couldn't really find my place (like being in high school ALL over again). At this point you are required to keep a 3.0 gpa (not cumulative) to stay in the program. Not a single professor nor my advisor made an effort to offer help, in fact I actually got decent encouraging feedback from my professors that made me less worried. Anyway I got one warning letter that I needed to raise my grades, and by the next semester I did raise it significantly to a 2.96 gpa. You would think this would be sufficient but I still got the dismissal letter which was an utter shock. When I went to repeal the decision (in front of the entire faculty and program director), the topic of conversation quickly shifted from poor grades to instead how quiet I was and that I needed good communication skills to be in this profession. I left that meeting embarrassed and ashamed and having no idea where to go. I did graduate that same semester with a degree in health sciences, but instead of it being a time that I should feel accomplished and prepared, I instead felt scared and unsure of the future. I was so ill-prepared for the real world I ended up having to take a job that requires no college degree at all. My words to Nazareth College: in an age where we are supposedly accepting of all backgrounds, cultures, languages and religions, shouldn't we also be more accepting of other personality types? The way I see it, this was character discrimination. I wanted to become a Physical Therapist because I love people and want to help them, I'm sorry I am not exactly a cheerleader. I feel now as if I threw away A LOT of money and time and I was left in a hole that I will NEVER dig myself out of. No other college physical therapy program will accept a failure of another program. Attending this college is now my life's biggest regret.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Nazareth College is a small school located in the Rochester area. Being such a small size, there is not typically very much going on around campus. This school offers students an academic centered environment that is both safe and quiet. I would definitely recommend Nazareth College given the quality of education they offer. However, there is a lack of student activities and few dining options available.
