Nazareth College not only has a beautiful campus, but it also has an amazing staff and an outgoing student population. The staff members who clean and cook for the school are all interested in the students and their wants and needs, and are as friendly as can be. The professors want nothing but the best for their students, and are more than willing to help their students succeed in their classes. Nazareth also offers so many great opportunities for students to to be involved in the community, and on campus. I highly reccomend students looking into colleges to apply to Naz and become a Golden Flyer!

Nazareth College was very different for me culturally. Although I'm still adjusting to its environment, I couldn't be anymore content for my decision. Financial aid was given to me in abundance, the college is the perfect size where you don't need to run to class because every academic building is close in location, the professors and faculty are extremely friendly, classroom sizes are perfectly sized and professors usually know your names within the first week of classes, and there's always free pizza somewhere on campus!

I admire how Nazareth treats sports and other clubs equally. At some schools, sports overwhelms everything else, but at Nazareth there is a diversity in extracurricular activities. The school encourages community service, leadership, and teamwork. Even so, Nazareth definitely demonstrates fan support and school spirit. It is very common to see other students wearing purple and gold or logos with Nazareth printed all over them!
