Nazareth College is not a bad college when it comes to academics, but it is not diverse at all and there is not much to do when it comes to partying. This is a school for mostly those who are interested in the arts, but they also do have great medical programs such as; Nursing, Physical Therapy, Public Health, etc. The athletic department is not that strong but there are some games here and there. The school is really small which I like because the classes are not too large. Most professors at Naz are caring and do their best to make sure students succeed but many professors dont care about the well-being of their students. The dining is HORRIBLE! In conclusion, Nazareth is an average C- school in my opinion.

Nazareth is a beautiful school and has a lot of great programs to offer! The professors are great and get to know you because of the smaller class sizes, which is really nice. I would recommend Nazareth to anyone who is thinking about it! They also have great sports programs that are manageable to play with academics because of understanding coaches and professors. You can be a successful student athlete, student, and are important.
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.
