niagara university is a wonderful place to go for your undergraduate and graduate as well. with its small class sizes and extremely knowledgeable professors you are sure to get an excellent education. the professors and staff are very caring and willing to help you succeed.
Michelle from Gasport, NY
niagara university has a great teaching staff; some of which work int the field they teach. they are very good about keeping you aware of current and up coming events. biggest criticism the current parking arrangement; be prepared to walk about 2-3 blocks to get to class.
