When U.S. News and World Report published its annual college rankings this past fall, Niagara University was once again listed among the best institutions in the northeast. We were again placed among the region’s best values and we were lauded for the great distances we go to serve international students as well as military veterans and their families.
U.S. News was also the first of three major media outlets to praise the return on investment that Niagara University offers to students. Soon after the publication listed us on its list of “Great Schools, Great Prices,” Money magazine ranked us as the best value among all institutions in the Buffalo-Niagara region. As if that wasn't enough, Kiplinger’s Personal Finance then featured NU on its 2017 list of the “Top 100 Best Private University Values” and “Top 300 Best College Values.”
Our record of excellence speaks for itself:
- Niagara has the highest four-year graduation rate in Western New York;
- Ninety-six percent of our graduates are either employed or in graduate school within one year of graduating;
- An excellent freshman-to-sophomore student retention rate of 81 percent;
- We offer a holistic community of the academy and workplace with a faculty whose research is second to none, and our engagement of teaching and instruction is exemplary.
People from all over the world are recognizing The Power of Niagara University.
