Niagara University is situated just minutes from the world-famous Niagara Falls and the Canadian border. Niagara offers you an exceptional educational opportunity: it's private, has challenging academic programs, and a closely-knit campus where students, professors, and administrators care about you. NU was founded in 1856 by the Vincentians, a community of priests and brothers dedicated to helping all, especially the poor and disadvantaged. This spirit of community service is interwoven into many of Niagara's courses as a program called Service Learning. We have over 800 course offerings and more than 50 career-oriented programs to choose from. Bachelor's degrees are offered in the arts & sciences, business administration, education, and hospitality & tourism management.
