I personally love Niagara University. The environment there is amazing. I felt so welcomed from the first day on campus. The administration is so helpful. Don't get me started on the beautiful campus. It is also located by Niagara Falls which is an incredible weekend spot. The academics and opportunities for involvement are extraordinary.
I quite enjoy NU! It has great people, amazing service professors and lots of things to do! The only thing I am not happy with is the fact that they are allowing students to return to campus during a global pandemic. It is not the safest option but, I am thankful that they are providing online classes as a hybrid option.
I think it is a great environment to learn in; especially since class sizes are smaller than the average school it provides a bigger opportunity to ask queations. Also I enjoy that each professors knows your name; and it feels like a personal experience.
Who says college isn't worth it or can't be fun? Since I have begun school at Niagara University, I have not once felt like it was not worth the work or money. Beginning at the first open house I attended, I have felt more than welcomed. The amount of effort, work, and detail put into each event and program shows how much the university really cares for their students and their education. There are many factors about the school that made me choose to attend Niagara University. The campus is located in a beautiful area in western New York near many tourist attractions. I was amazed at how breathtaking the campus was no matter which season it was. Whether a warm summer day or during a cold blizzard, the campus was beautiful. That is one aspect that makes going to campus more enjoyable. Another is how friendly and informative each staff member is. The abundant emails and phone calls to inform me with important information or to ensure I was on the right track was very helpful. Everyone I talked to was more than willing to answer any questions I had or help me with any tasks while enrolling and registering. I still encounter the same characteristics of the staff members today after being enrolled and attending classes. I learned that the professors at Niagara University are not as strict and harsh as shown on tv or at other schools. They all have taken the time and effort to know me on a personal level. Each student is known by name and have built amazing relationships with their professors. That connection has helped me learn a lot during my first semester and helped me make the transition from high school to college. While registering for classes, my advisor sat down with me one on one and thoroughly explained all the courses and credits I needed during my four years in college. That helped me feel more confident and prepared to take on the next four years of my life. What makes Niagara University different from other schools is their desire to develop students into well rounded individuals. Instead of just registering students for courses relating to their major, they require addition courses such as religion, philosophy, and liberal arts to be taken as well. This is what distinguishes a Niagara University graduate from other graduates with the same degree. Besides school, Niagara University has worked to maintain a safe and fun campus. There is high security in buildings and around the campus to ensure each student remains safe. That makes me feel more safe and secure knowing there are authorities on campus and I am not at any risk of danger. Throughout the school year, Niagara University has planned events to encourage students to get together and have fun.By g to events such as sports games, trivia nights, movies, a hypnotist show, and much more, I was given the opportunity to meet many new friends and have a great time. I have only been attending the school for a few months and already know I have made the right choice. I have found a new home and family and can not wait to experience the next four years here at Niagara University.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Niagara University is 82%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
If I could go back and talk to myself as a highschool senior there is not a lot of advise I would give to myself. I would definately say take as many AP courses as you can so that you can make more time for programs such as studying abroad. I would also tell myself to really visit the college campuses and sit in on classes to really get a feel of what the college or university really has to offer. Although I am satisfied with my choice in college now, sometimes I wonder if I might have been happier someplace else, and I think I would not wonder so much if I wouldn't have put off applying and visiting schools. Finding a school that works for you is the most important, and knowing people who also attend that school isn't necessarily important because it forces you to make friends and really branch out of your comfort zone.
The class sizes and how professors genuinely care about their students. It is similar to high school in that the teachers know you personally and really truely want you to succeed
My school is unique because it is a small campus and the professors are very approachable. All of the classes I have taken are very gifted in the knowledge being taught as well as having a positive attitude which is very important. This university is one of the greatest unversities when it come down to professor being helpful and postive.
Niagara University offers the small personalized classes not available to most student at larger, public schools. The small campus setting allows close interaction with many students and student atheletes . Professers know the majority of students by name and are readily available to assist and offer guidance when necessary. The programs can easily inter-relate and therefore there is much flexibility in completing your programs. The school's reputiable basketball and hockey program offer on campus activities that promote school spirit.
People who are extremely liberal and artistic should not attend this school. Also, people who enjoy good weather or are very impatient. And people who like living in bustling cities.
Fun, willing to party, but gets their work done as well.
The worst thing about this school is the weather. It's always snowy and windy, almost never sunny.
Someone who is interested in growing and developing in character, or creating change and social justice in the world. The University promotes Vincentian ideology in all its students, including service to other, integrity, honesty, and hard work. Anyone who wants to grow in religious convictions is also encouraged to attend the University, but students need not to worry about religion being forced down their throats. If someone truly wants to discover who they are, who they want to become, and do it in a small, friendly, beautiful environment, then Niagara is the place for them!
