Contact me if your last name begins with:

I grew up in the town of Fairport, NY where school pride, love for your community and togetherness were part of your daily life. When I was researching colleges, I wasn’t exactly sure what I was looking for until I visited Niagara. I just knew right away that NU was for me. I graduated in 2002 and a year later, I was working in Niagara’s Admissions Office.

Why Niagara?

Niagara is a special place. Year after year, I am amazed at the student stories that develop here. As a student, you will meet amazing people who come from all walks of life and learn in so many ways. At NU you will receive a great education, make great connections and leave with great memories. Niagara is a small school with big opportunities. As a Niagaran, you will develop into a well rounded person who is not only academically prepared but also ready to take on the world.

Admission Advice

VISIT, VISIT, VISIT! Take advantage of the many different ways you can visit a college. Meet people, ask questions and get familiar with the college campus and its surroundings. And…. When you are narrowing down your choices, visit again!
