Niagara University Reviews
Niagara University is a wonderful school! I never realized how much people can inspire you until I came here. The teachers are so attentive to each student, and they truly do care about your future and what you have to offer the world. They bring out the best in each of their students, care deeply about good morals and community, and are very well-educated individuals. The programs here are also challenging but fun! Each program is very unique and is presented in such a way that all types of learners are able to thrive. There is never a dull day, even in the general education courses! Even better, you are always surrounded by great people with profound ideas that will influence the world someday. Believe me when I say that you can be ANYTHING after coming here!
I love it there, feels just like a second home and I’m so excited that I had the ability to attend. All of the different programs that are offered are so individualized and creative compared to other universities. Having it be a smaller campus, it is extremely easy to make friends and find fun things to do. The surrounding area has a bunch of restaurants and shopping places as well as being so close to Buffalo and Canada which is awesome! I love this school and would recommend it to anyone looking for a close knit school.
Niagara University from the moment I stepped foot on campus was welcoming and compassionate. I have visited countless schools and not one was as genuine as Niagara. Each and every member of their staff is 100% open and willing to help you in every aspect which makes the college exper A lot less daunting. It is in a geographically exceptional area with the Falls less than 10 minutes away and the campus is stunning with its Vincentian architecture. Though I may just be a freshman, I have no complaints with the Niagara University family and campus.
