Niagara University Reviews
I am an African american female attending Niagara University and I can honestly say it was a great decision to attend this college. As any senior in high school, I was afraid of choosing where I would spend my life for the next 4 years as an actual adult but the second I walked on campus the energy was extremely welcoming! I thought I wouldn't fit in much with the color of my skin and the lack of ethic people attending but they treat everyone with the exact same dignity and respect. There are also Black Student Union programs as well which is cool too! If you aren't considering Niagara University as one of your college choices, please reconsider because I guarantee you won't regret coming here.
Thus far, the students have had a strong impact in the changes that have been implemented since my freshman year, beginning in the Fall of 2014. Niagara University is a family friendly, and community involving University with a strong Vincentian heritage. The dining hall has been recently renovated and will be completed next month. The food quality and variety has improved tremendously. I am a Community Advisor (CA) which is similar to an RA at most schools. Being a CA has positively impacted my experience here. Housing at Niagara University is very highly priced especially for the limited housing options. Yes, there are several housing options as far as buildings, but the most recent addition has been the apartments across campus, but that is also the only housing offered that is constantly full. Our housing occupancy has been down, and that has forced us to finally consider allocating money towards updating our residence halls.
Small school so you can connect with your professors compared to larger state schools. Programs every Friday that include free food and fun entertainment like escape rooms, hypnotists, comedians, laser tag etc. Campus is surrounded by nature, 5 min walk from the gorge, 20 min walk to the whirlpool and if you have a car you can visit the falls or go to Canada. I would like to see more diversity with the staff and faculty members. And I would like to see more programs about different cultures including Spanish heritage, African culture, Middle Easern Culture and Asiatic Heritage.
