"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."

"Overall, NU has a great school counseling program. No program is perfect; nonetheless, the faculty and staff are caring and committed to their students, and I feel my education will prepare me for my future career."

"Over the past few semesters, I have learned a ton of information relevant to my future career, and feel like Niagara University is excelling at preparing me to be a school counselor. However, I do wish the technology in the library and computer labs were more up-to-date, as it takes me longer to actually log into the computer than it does to print multiple documents. While some of my professors (mostly the adjuncts) are not the best instructors, overall I am happy with the instruction I have received thus far."

"The professors are great and are very accessible. However, the number of papers I needed to write in my first semester was absurd -- there was one semester where I had to write five papers a week. Overall though, the program is very good and has done quite a bit to prepare me for my career."

"This program definitely works to prepare students for their careers as school counselors. However, there were a few classes where the amount of work did not reflect the content (i.e. constant busy work)."

"Pros: The program is very affordable and is centered around data driven instruction. The professors make an effort to keep the students up to date with information and push them to not only be the best but to be the only logical option for a career choice. The programs are filled with valuable information and honest care is put into each course. The professors truly make the program worthwhile for any person looking to become an educator. The two day per week schedule is also wonderful because of work schedules. The networking between cohort members is a great tool, as more than half of the students are from Canada. Cons: The workload is intense, not necessarily reasonable. It is obvious that this program is an accelerated program, but much of the work became busy work. Also, with the repeating need for technology use in the classroom, the technology often failed in class at the University. Because of this, much time was wasted during the actual class segments. Also, much of the material seemed to be "common sense," although it is understood why this information must be repeated."
