Niagara Notes

Inspire Future Purple Eagles with Niagara Notes!

The Office of Alumni Engagement collaborates with the Office of Enrollment Management on this creative initiative to inspire accepted students to become future Purple Eagles!

Our Niagara Notes program, now in its ninth year has begun!

nu notesAs of March 10, 2021, our first batch of Niagara Notes have been mailed. *Please note that due to the pandemic you may not have received a student that is graduating from your high school. We have done our best to match you by geographical area or region. As you can imagine, we have more applicants from local areas like Buffalo/Niagara, Rochester, and Syracuse. As we move 150+ miles from Niagara University, the list becomes smaller, including out of state. We appreciate your commitment to this program and sending notes to students despite this issue.

Over the past eight years alumni volunteers have written nearly 4,800 notes to prospective students who have applied, but not committed, to Niagara. If you have participated in this program in the past, thank you! If you haven't, but would like to, contact Howard at or 716.286.8772. We'll send out the names and addresses of students in your area, along with note cards, stamps, and envelopes, plus a template to help you write your note.

We hope that a little encouragement from Niagara alumni will help make our accepted students decide to attend Niagara University.
