5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I'm personally in a sorority. I am in Alpha Sigma Alpha, and we do a lot for the community, however we are not very well known on campus. We are in the process of trying to increase our voice on campus and hoping that after the next year or so we will be very well known on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: There are off campus parties every weekend. After that there are even people who will go to the bars. There is always something do to, party wise on or around this campus.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: When I applied for school I was automatically placed in my major. However during the process we go through Learn and Serve (I'm an education major) and they review our performance. If we get bad reviews they will have meetings with us to discuss if this major is really right for us.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I LOVE my major. I love the professors, and the fact that I am in a classroom for AT LEAST 2 hours every week since Fall freshman year. The professors are very helpful, and the workload is very manageable. The simulation classrooms are very helpful when designing a classroom of your own one day. The whole concept of the major is one of the best in the area.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are the CUTEST restaurants in Lewiston that are inexpensive and are SO fun to go to with a group of friends.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: It is very strict on campus, however it makes me personally feel safer. Due to the fact that they are super strict about things, it makes me feel better about my safety attending this school.

1 College Sophomore

Weather: It is always so windy, and so rainy, and so freezing! However, because the campus is small, you're never outside for more then 10 minutes at a time so its really not that bad. A lot of us walk through other buildings to get to father away ones so we don't have to be outside that long when its that cold. It is because of lake effect being right next to the Niagara River.

College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: It doesn't really bother me because I have a long term relationship. However, many people go out to the bars and the clubs to meet guys and girls.

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: I love the little town it is right near by, it's very small and has many cute restaurants. On the other side, there is Niagara Falls, which is nice because it is a bigger city, and there is stuff going on. It is the best of both worlds.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: I believe that being a Catholic school, our campus wide community is very diverse.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: There is great participation with club sports around student life, and there is also a very good out come to the division one team games. Sports is a great aspect of this campus.

5 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I have a very nice scholarship based on academics, and I have not really had a problem with financial aid.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: The policy enforcement is very strong, however the use of drugs and alcohol on this campus is very high. Most people do drink Thursday-Sunday, and it is very common to see students walking around with containers with what appear to be alcohol. Although the alcohol is seen a lot by other students, students hide the alcohol from the RA as we have a zero tolerance policy. I would not say that drugs are a HUGE issue on campus, but a lot of students use them.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There have been some incidents on campus, however I feel relatively safe being on campus because the issue was taken care of as quick as possible.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: I love the academics at this university. It is the reason I chose it. The education program here (the one I am in) is one of the best in the area. At Niagara professors really care about each and every student and they really are trying to make sure that the students get the most out of the class. The class sizes are small, and that also allows for great successes. The professors want to make sure that every student does their best, and it really is motivating for everyone else.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I really enjoy the campus housing. I think it provides a very diverse space to live. There are the towers, which provide a very social living environment, and then they have the older buildings (Lynch and OD) which are older and allow for a quieter atmosphere. Clet is nice because a lot of people from the same major gather here. It is also nice to have the on campus apartments because they allow for people to cook their own meals, and be away, but still part of the campus community. Finally, the option of on campus housing of Varsity village is nice because the housing is close to campus and you are able to live with people that have the same shared interests as you.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: You can almost always see a campus safety car which is nice.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are many places students can go to for off campus housing.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The professors are very helpful and encouraging to students.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: They don't have my major

5 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Two bars where NU students bartend make it more friendly environment

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: It's always great to hang out on the weekends and there are plenty of options to choose from.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: It's pretty in the spring, summer and fall but cold in the winter. There's not much to do in town and much of the area is run down and impoverished.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It's typical student housing off campus. Nothing great but it will do.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Certain sports like basketball and hockey are highly attended. The facilities for these sports are first rate. Other sports like swimming could use some help. The pool is old and not very appealing for a D1 school.
