Nazareth College Reviews
I feel that benefited a lot from attending Nazareth College. There are lot of different activities and volunteering to get involved in. Dining hall food is not the best so I wouldn’t expect anything gourmet. I have had great relationships with many professors. They support you all throughout your college journey. What I liked most about this college is that you were taught more than just academic content, an in depth understanding of our world. Not to mention, the value of diversity is second to none! However, I had trouble finding my niche and had some personal problems along the way but hey it was still a good fit for me just to live at a small campus.
Personally, Nazareth College has been nothing but a second home to me. It has brought me so many new friends because everyone is so warm and welcoming. The campus is so beautiful because of all the trees and the buildings. The teachers are very caring and want you to succeed. The food here, hasn't been so good in the past. However, this year it has really improved. For example, now they have a pasta bar, salad bar, and an ice cream bar! All in all, Nazareth is a community. It's a place where the community comes together through events, sports games, and more.
This college is all about embracing your true self. The great thing about Nazareth is that they push for diversity and inclusion in all race, religion, sexual orientation, and gender. The college truly cares about the students' success education wise, but also in our everyday lives. They offer many services to help students that are struggling. For example, they offer health and counseling services, reading and writing services, tutoring, financial aid, and academic advisement. Since Nazareth College has a small campus, everyone is a familiar face. Every student is so kind and respectful of everyone's differences.
