Campus Food: Clet is awful. They are changing food provider though. Gally is good but very expensive. There is zero dining options past 10 pm on weekdays. Weekends are worse.

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing is the way to go if you want to save money while attending Niagara. Off-campus housing landlords are very excited to see college students and are more than willing to rent to them. Cost is average. However, Niagara takes no part in helping you find off campus housing.

Academics: I am a Biochemistry student at Niagara University. Going into my major I knew it was going to be difficult. There is a huge workload put on you when you enter this major and they require you to take 18 credits every semester in order to graduate on time. It is very overwhelming at first, but you learn to manage your time. Niagara just put in a brand new state of the art science facility which is extremely nice. There is a lot of opportunity to work with professors one-on-one in their research field and it is require in your senior year.

Academics: Professors at Niagara are generally very helpful and willing to help you. However, you still run into the professors who believe they are higher than everyone else and look down upon you and to other professors. Curriculum I feel is up to the standards of a college education. It is challenging but doable. Workload can be very overwhelming if time management skills are not presented in some majors. Study abroad opportunities are available which are well worth taking advantage of. These can change your life forever.

Local Area: The atmosphere is exciting at first. Coming from a small town, moving to Niagara Falls was fun. There is obviously Niagara Falls as the big attraction and all of the activities to go along with is (such as the Jet Boat and Maid of the Mist). However, unless you go across the border to Canada, there is not much else to do from the American side. There are some street events that occur in Lewiston and Niagara Falls during the early months of fall and in the spring. There is a shopping outlet about 5 minutes from the University. Ralph Wilson Stadium is about 40 minutes away and the First Niagara Center about 25 for all the sports fans. Locals typically like college students and are very welcoming.

Administration: Coming to college you think you are going to gain a lot of freedom. However, Niagara University is very strict on the amount of freedom you are allowed to have. You are very limited on how much of a social life you have as you must sign in everyone you bring into your dorm building. If you have a significant other of the opposite sex when you join college, it is very hard to have them stay over unless you know someone of the same sex to sign them in on an overnight pass. I also understand the importance of attendance, but most rules are if you miss more than three classes you fail. Therefore, if you are sick and they do not excuse you it is very easy to fail. It also does not give people a lot of freedom to make their own decisions.

Greek Life: Most Non-Greeks views the Greeks as individuals who are outcasts, who join the Greek community in order to 'fit in'.

1 College Junior

Scholarships: Dealing with financial aide is a headache. They are very unorganized and do not seem to really know the best way to deal with situations. The amount of financial aide given is very helpful, however, dealing with ongoing financial aide is a hassle.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: For individuals who wish to party in their college years, Niagara definitely provides the opportunity to do so. These take place off campus and many usually occur at once. I however, do not believe that the party scene has a positive impact on student experience.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Athletics are a big part of Niagara. There are a lot of students involved in the many D1 sports Niagara has to offer. Team performance varies on the sports team and fan support is lacking from students although community fan rates are high. School spirit is definitely lacking at Niagara. Athletic facilities are very good.

4 College Junior

Majors: I have not had any internships as I am a Biochemistry major. However, Niagara provides a lot of opportunities for individuals of other majors to gain internship experience, especially in the social work and education fields.

2 College Junior

Campus Housing: Dorming life is awful, there is very limited space. If you pay $500 extra a semester you can get a single room to yourself which is the equivalent of living in a closet. If you live with a roommate the rooms are somewhat spacious, however, you have to deal with someone being there with you all the time and that can get a bit overwhelming. Apartment living is a little better because you have living room and kitchen space to move about, but is still quite small.

3 College Junior

Campus Quality: Students are given the opportunity to go to on campus sport events. There are also activities organized usually on the weekends. Other than that, there is not always something to do and you must find things to keep yourself busy.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Niagara University has very effective ways to keep its students safe. There is campus police on duty at all times and they are always willing to help if someone is in need of anything. They will also pick you up at night if you are afraid to walk across campus alone in the dark. Campus safety makes rounds throughout all the buildings and every building has security cameras.

5 College Junior

Diversity: Niagara University has a large amount of diversity on campus. It accepts people of all race and ethnicity. It also welcomes students from other countries as well as gays and lesbians.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are many places to eat around Niagara University. However, they mainly consist of fast food or non-healthy choices. Not many restaurants offer student discounts.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Club sports like rugby are popular because they win games and party hard. D1 teams draw a lot of attention but their records are sub par.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food won't kill you. If you have an unlimited meal plan, it doesn't hurt. The amount of store funds are limited too

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Tap Tuesdays for the bars. Then Thursday is a club or bar night. Friday and Saturday are house and bar nights. Parties aren't hard to find.

5 College Freshman

Majors: The professors and heads of departments are great at what they do.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Depends where you live honestly.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Most of the kids are from the same area so people get along pretty much. There's a huge focus on academics because the cost to go hear isn't cheap.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: Most students stay on campus but don't have to travel far for off campus parties. There is a vast array of places to shop, eat, or go on adventures.

5 College Freshman

Academics: The classes are really small with a 11:1 ratio. Teachers actually care about their students and are flexible as long as students are willing to work hard and show the drive.

Greek Life: Since it's such a small school, Greek life isn't that big. There are 2 Sororities and 2 Fraternities. Their parties are decent and everyone can get in but their presence on campus can go unnoticed.
