Whether it's a communication major taping a mini documentary or a hotel and restaurant management major participating in an internship at one of the world's most renowned luxury hotel in Lake Como, Italy, a key benefit of the Niagara experience is its students' ability to take what they have learned in the classroom and apply it in real-world settings.
As a student at Niagara University, you'll have many opportunities to put your knowledge into action.
