Student & Graduate Reviews

4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2018

Niagara just recently became ACA accredited, which means our education is that much better than any old counseling program. Most programs are 2 years, but Niagara's is 3. That extra year gives us more time to gain field experience. We therefore have more experience than a graduate from another school, and are therefore likely to be hired over the competition.
4.2 out of 5.0
Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2012

Niagara University's graduate program provided small class sizes with easy access to the professors. I was able to get to know the professors and students and had ample help when needed. The drawback to attending a small school with a small graduate program is the lack of networking opportunities. Sadly, after graduation I was unable to find work for almost 9 months and majority of the students I graduated with had similar issues or didn't get jobs in the field. If there was more help assisting graduate students find work in the field I would have given all the ratings 5 out of 5 stars.

Degree: School Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

The professors within this program were wonderful. They were very supportive throughout my graduate career and helped assist in every possible way at each point of the program. I feel as though I am well trained and ready to find a job within the field of school psychology thanks to the great program at Niagara University.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

I believe that Niagara University is a diverse campus, full of professors who enjoy their positions and can feel the love of teaching. I have not met someone on campus who was unhelpful. The University is safe, and provides a great foundation for higher learning. As a veteran, it is a military friendly school and I am blessed to be part of it. The worst thing, is not surprisingly, the parking.

I did not stay on campus to answer question #2. Unversity is military friendly and provides a fantastic learning environment.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Finance
Graduation Year: 2015

Niagara University has helped me grow as a person, in more than just an intellectual manner. The student support and knowledge that is offered, as well as the career service system, is really what makes me appreciate the experience I've had. This is why I have chosen to continue my education at this school after 4 great undergraduate years. Pros: Amazing staff support; networking possibilities that will assist with future careers; club / sport potential; travel opportunities; small class sizes to ensure a personal relationship with professors and classmates; night/weekend classes to help those working full time an opportunity to attend Cons: Lack of diversity; quite expensive and lack of financial support for low-income families; Commuting expenses not recognized by financial aid facilities
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2013

The program enriched my understanding of the criminal justice system and has inspired me to pursue my education further. The professors were very approachable outside of the classroom and committed to their students. Overall, I am very satisfied with the program.
