The calendar’s third month is one for potential transfer and graduate students to get much better acquainted with Niagara University.
NU will host an Open House for prospective transfer students on Saturday, March 12, 2011 on campus in Bisgrove Hall from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Refreshments will be served.
Two weeks later (March 26), Monteagle Ridge will serve as the site of a Graduate School Open House & Showcase in the Glynn Family Atrium of Bisgrove Hall from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. A continental breakfast will be offered to all attendees.
Both events are excellent opportunities for prospective students and their families to learn more about NU’s academic programs, scholarships and financial aid. Transfer Open House will inform interested students in the transfer admissions process, including university policies regarding transfer credits, while Graduate School Open House will showcase NU’s accredited master’s degree programs in business administration, criminal justice, teacher education, counseling, educational leadership and interdisciplinary studies as well as Niagara’s new Ph.D. program in leadership and policy.
“The Graduate School Open House & Showcase is perfect for anyone who is even considering attending graduate school at any point in the near future,” said Carlos E. Tejada, Niagara University’s associate dean for graduate recruitment. “Employers tend to be drawn to NU graduates, not only because of the high quality of our programs but also because our grad students receive a great deal of personal attention from their professors due to our limited class sizes.”
Meanwhile, approximately 250 students from two- and four-year colleges from across the country choose to transfer to Niagara each year.
“NU has really developed a nationwide reputation for being a transfer-friendly university,” stated Mark Wojnowski, associate dean for transfer enrollment. “We offer generous transfer scholarships and are very receptive to accepting credits from other schools. Niagara believes that transfers are integral to the development of its student body and the university community.”
Current NU students will be on hand at both open houses to provide guided campus tours. Convenient parking for is available in the Castellani and Dwyer parking lots, adjacent to the Gallagher Center.
