5 College Freshman

Scholarships: Honestly i hired a private person do to my financial aid because i had no idea what i was doing.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: they are strict on good things that really do not impact me much.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I don't really know alot about greek life.

5 College Freshman

Academics: I have a great internship and the workload was not too bad.

3 College Freshman

Academics: I am not a fan of the registration process it takes a lot time.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: I live near a small town which is nice when going shopping.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Niagara Falls has a lot of Oriental tourists so the places to eat reflect a lot of their cultures, but there is many good places for chicken wings since it is right outside Buffalo which is the home of the chicken wing.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The campus is small so there is a cafeteria as well as a building with about 4 little shops. the cafeteria closes at 10 on week nights and 7 on weekends which is very inconvenient but many students are off campus at these times anyways. the other shops close by 12 p.m each night as well.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The only annoying aspect of campus strictness is when you have friends from other schools visit. It is understandable that since they will be responsible for the student when they are in the dorm that they are strict but a form is filled out and a temporary i.d. is given to the person even if the visit is a mere 20 minutes.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: All the buildings are independent and none have connections between them. It is a beautiful Catholic college in western New York that gets decent snowfall but the University maintains walkways during storms as well as if not better than the town maintains the roads.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Niagara University is as diverse as other large institutions but on a much smaller scale due to size. After visiting large colleges near such as the University of Buffalo which is 10x larger than Niagara, the diversity seems pretty similar.

Scholarships: Being a private institution the cost of attendance is high, but I received an academic scholarship for about 60 percent of the amount, but was not available to receive much state financial aid.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: There is a lot of school spirit and all facilities are kept super clean. On one of the green spaces between the two largest dorm buildings students lay out and hangout in the nice weather calling it "O'Shea Beach" after one of the dorms.

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: Student faculty interaction is almost impossible and you almost have to try to not become friendly with your teachers who all know you personally. My largest class is a lecture with about 50 people in it, my smallest class last semester had just 18students in it (as a 100 level course) so class discussion occurred every class and it made it easier to approach the professors. As a biology student i am already participating in undergraduate research with a professor in which we are isolating bacteria from animals and testing their resistance to antibiotics, and due to a question about a fruit tree I have started growing and starting this semester as a personal side project he is going to assist me in growing apple trees using grafts from his own personal trees.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The United States side of Niagara Falls is nothing compared to the Canadian side, which many students take day trips to. Behind the school (away from Niagara Falls) is a town called Lewiston which always has festivals and activities which Niagara University is a big part of when weather is nice (harsh western New York winters on the Niagara River)

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There is 8-12 campus saftey officers which partol campus 24/7 in vehicles and walking throughout buildings and from 12am-6pm there is one stationed at the front desk of each dorm building and they are very personal to the students having conversations as we run into them across campus.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: For only having 4500 students there is 2 fraternities and 1 sorority which have no designated housing but there is 5-6 small houses on campus which house a decent amount of students which upperclassmen (and friends) get first choice of which is known as varsity village and is a crescent in the center of campus and there is a lawn they rotate around where they hold some events.

College Sophomore

Nightlife: I have not gone off campus to any clubs or parties but most people take taxis to one of two clubs on the weekends which have cover charges from 5-10 dollars depending on the event going on that night.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: For a school of 4500 students there is 1 computer lab as well as a large computer lab in the library with about 40 computers. Most students have laptops so unless it is crunch time finding a computer is easy. I personally have a laptop but no printer in my room so i go to the library nightly to print my work due the next day. 40.00 dollars is given to us on our student i.d. cards for printing at a rate of 5 cents per page. Being a biology major with chemistry and biology labs due every week I had over 20 dollars remaining at the end of the semester. The wifi is pretty reliable and when it happens to be going slow the dorm rooms all have ethernet ports which work pretty quickly taking into account the internet and wifi is available throughout the entire campus.

Drug Safety: It is understood that students will drink in school, but if you do not stumble through campus, act stupid, have alcohol visible in your room or get sick (which you immediately get sent to the hospital for) then disciplinary action is taken. Weekdays campus safety makes rounds through the dorm hallways every hour or so from 6 p.m.until 12 p.m., while on weekends they do so from 6 p.m. until 2 p.m. enforcing the policy of no alcohol. If you are 21 you are allowed alcohol in your room as long as no one under 21 is in the room and the door is kept closed.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: For a small school most of the sports teams at Niagara University are Division 1, and there is alot of school spirit at the games which are free to all students and which most students that reside on campus attend.

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: An NU degree is one of the best degrees you can get in the world and companies worldwide know about it.
