Degree: Reading & Literacy Education
Graduation Year: 2010

Niagara University has successfully prepared me to be successful in my educational career. That have given me the tools, resources, and quality experiences to ensure that I was prepared to be a teacher, reading coach or administrator. I have recovered multiple degrees and teaching certification from my NU experience ranging from elementary education, special education, literacy instruction and educational leadership. I've also been successfully placed in multiple jobs with great success.

Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2015

I graduated from Niagara University with a B.S. in biology, a coordinate in environmental studies, and a minor in mathematics, and I love any opportunity to promote this university as I feel I had a remarkable experience in my undergraduate career. In my opinion, what sets Niagara apart is the individual attention that the faculty gives to each student. If you choose to attend Niagara, you will have the opportunity to get to know your advisor from the very first semester. This person will not only help you choose the right courses, but he or she will also help to set you up for whichever career you’re interested in. They will know not only "what" you want to be when you graduate, but also "who" you want to be. They will know you, not only as a student, but also as a person, and in my opinion, that subtle distinction makes all the difference. My college experience was exceptional because of the courses, the clubs, and the friends, but my college experience was uniquely exceptional because my professors cared about my success.

Degree: Education/Teaching of Individuals in Elementary Special Education Programs
Graduation Year: 2008

I have attended Niagara University for now my 3rd degree. I went for undergraduate in Elementary Education 1-6 and Special Education 1-6. I then went back for my Literacy Instruction degree for my first Master's program and now I am currently enrolled in the Building Level Leadership administration degree. I am thankful for all of the knowledge and insight that their teacher preparation program has offered me. Firstly, stating that you have obtained your degree from Niagara as an educator is looking upon highly, especially in our area. It is a rigorous program and strong and successful educators have come out of their college of education. Also, while expensive, they do offer substantial scholarships and financial aid, and the staff is helpful in ensuring that you can get all the help possible financially. There is also multiple opportunities for study abroad programs, while I haven't personally participated, I have many friends and family members that have and I know they considered these experiences highly beneficial and would recommend them to anyone. While being a Catholic school, I myself don't really have much of a religious affiliation. I know people are often concerned about this, especially with the religion requirement of courses. I actually did a study of all religions and found it to be one of my most interesting courses that I took that was outside of my education curriculum requirements.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2012

While Niagara University was beautiful and the professors were good, I have found that, in general, my degree has not helped me meet success in job hunting; furthermore, private college's ballooning attendance costs do not merit the loans you will take out to attend. I think, in the long run, you are better off attending community college as cheaply as possible, completing a bachelor's degree as inexpensively as possible, and getting into a field that is searching for workers. All college programs should include coding--if they don't, teach yourself. Take that money you would have spent on tuition and take out a small business loan for an online start-up or kickstarter. Write a book. Do things you can talk about in interviews. Network, network, network. My generation got scammed into overpriced educations. Don't follow in our mistakes.

Degree: Biochemistry
Graduation Year: 2013

Niagara University has dedicated professors who make an effort to get to know their students. It truly is a home away from home with a tight-knit community of students.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2015

Niagara University strives to produce the most well-rounded, educated students. As a biochemistry major, I was able to take many classes not in my field of study in order to enhance my overall knowledge. This allowed me to see connections that my major had to the rest of the world. Not only do they have a phenomenal liberal arts educational program, the instructors hired are outstanding. Their knowledge and willingness to help their students was something like I have never experienced. These professors also push you to gain as much knowledge in the four short years you are there as possible. As a biochemistry major you are faced with not one science class and lab per semester, but many. This was frustrating at times but it forced me to grow and push myself into becoming the best in my field.
