Students Say

Nazareth College's classic little campus in the Rochester suburbs houses a "small private school with a large amount of spirit and a grand amount of heart." Nazareth (affectionately nicknamed "Naz") boasts sixty majors, including strong programs in nursing, music, and physical therapy, and the opportunity to pursue a variety of different discourses, whether or not it's part of your official field of study. Classrooms are filled with "an array of professors that come from both theory backgrounds and real-world experience backgrounds." The class sizes are very small and intimate, so "you get to know your professor very well and feel more open to ask questions and share your ideas," and most classes are based around discussion. The school encourages interdisciplinary exploration and tries to structure courses that connect "different fields of study to benefit the students' interests and allow them to pursue fields which would typically not accept differing opinions."

The faculty is "by far one of the best strengths of Nazareth College." "Anyone who has been at Naz can attest to the caring and personable faculty and staff," says a student. These "interesting, insightful, and approachable" professors "want to see every student succeed" and "make time to see students outside of the classroom if they need extra help," fostering "a positive self-image to learn and achieve in all of their students." "They bring a passion to the classroom that makes it fun to learn the material," raves a student, and they "encourage research and encourage using outside sources for additional learning." Peckham Hall, the new science building, has "beautiful labs" for biology and chemistry, and Nazareth has "great internship and clinical experiences as we get into our later years of school." The Health Sciences Department is also well known for its top-notch facilities that allow students to run pro-bono clinics right on campus.

From The School


Under the guidance of faculty, students frequently find themselves working with peers (including students from other disciplines) in clinical and lab settings, and on projects and productions. As one student recently mentioned: “There’s a community feeling on campus and the surrounding area of Rochester is welcoming to students. The school offers variety and diversity and I believe the school is dedicated to their students' wholeness, health, and overall well–being. It’s not ALL about your academic success but your overall growth along with personal maturity and life preparation. The advisors are truly dedicated to insuring you are on the right path and advice instead of tell.” Professors and advisors encourage students to link their studies with practical experiences, including study abroad, service-learning, research, and internships. Students can support or discover their varied interests through involvement in over 50 clubs and organizations ranging from academic clubs, athletics, culture and entertainment, and interfaith groups. It’s common for a math major to be a member of the dance team, a physical therapy major to minor in music, or a biochemistry major to minor in legal studies.

All campus clubs are initiated and led by students. Current campus clubs and organizations include Art Club; Art Therapy Club; ASL Club; Association of Social Work Students; Campus Activities Board; Center for Spirituality Council; Chinese Club; Communications, Sciences and Disorders Association; Club Italianissimo; Colleges Against Cancer; Collegiate QuizBowl Team; Community Youth Development Collective; Dare2Dance; Diversity Council; Finance Society; French Club; German Club; Gerontology Club; Golden Gazette; Habitat for Humanity, Inc.; International Club; Jazz Club; Lambda Association; LASMA-Spanish Club; Math Club; Music Business Club; Music Therapy Club; National Association for Music Education; Nazareth Commuter Association; Nazareth Dance Organization; Naz Ultimate; Nursing Club; Philosophy Club; Physical Therapy Club; Pre-Health Professionals Club; Psychology; Quidditch Club; Residence Hall Council; Science Club; Ski and Snowboard Club; Student Athlete Mentors; Student Occupational Therapy Association; Take Note; Theatre League; Wishing Well; Women’s Health Club; Ice Hockey; and WNAZCampus Radio Station. The Undergraduate Association provides student advocacy. For more: naz.edu/student-activities

Students Say

Since Nazareth College is a smaller school (enrollment is just over 2,100 students), "there is always a familiar face around the corner," and students are "extremely outgoing and sociable." A relatively large international contingent (as well as a conversation program that pairs international students with American ones to learn about the culture) aids in creating a student body that is "very open-minded and open to new ideas." Current students report that a high female-to-male ratio is noticeable, many of the people here are from either the Rochester or Syracuse area, and there are huge factions of musicians, dancers, and occupational/physical therapy students.

Overview

From The School


Location


Nazareth is situated on 150 acres in the charming town of Pittsford, seven miles from Rochester, New York state’s third largest city. Classic and modern buildings are interspersed amongst expansive lawns, shady woodland groves, and landscaped gardens. Cultural, co-curricular, and entertainment opportunities include: music, dance, and theatrical presentations at the Nazareth College Arts Center, 24 Golden Flyer athletic teams, 50+ clubs and organizations representing students’ academic, cultural, interfaith, and athletic interests, and presentations from national and international scholars and performers.

Campus Facilities & Equipment


In recent years, Nazareth College has invested nearly $47 million to provide enhanced learning and research facilities including: Peckham Hall Integrated Center for Math and Sciences, York Wellness and Rehabilitation Institute, and renovated nursing labs and learning spaces. The Glazer Music Performance Center, currently under construction, will open in 2018, and construction begins soon on the new Golisano Athletic Training Center.

Off-Campus Opportunities


Nazareth is known for its civic engagement–locally, regionally, nationally, and globally, as detailed at naz.edu/civic-engagement.

Students Say

The Nazareth College campus is "beautiful," and there are underground tunnels connecting most of the buildings, so students "hardly ever [have] to go outside in the cold or rain." The food is universally regarded as "terrible," with limited dining hall hours at that, but Rochester is only ten minutes away and the malls and restaurants of hometown Pittsford are also popular jaunts (plus, don't forget "Wegmans!"). People here have "enormously strong community engagement" with the surrounding area, and the majority of students have jobs or participate in community service. Though most weekdays are spent at the library, "there is plenty of time for fun if you plan accordingly."

Students fill their days with "classes, on-campus jobs, clubs, intramurals, sports, [and] studying," and there are "endless activities and events that are available to students to network, learn, and grow as an individual." Campus can become dead on the weekends, as most people leave, but during the week "Naz always has activities offered, whether that be Motivation Monday donuts and coffee, Winter Wonderland, Spring Fest, or Friday movie nights." There are also "$5 ticket deals with free transportation to major events like NHL games, Duke, and Syracuse basketball games, Broadway shows, and much more," and traditional Naz events like "Grocery Bingo, Trivia Night, Family Weekend, Siblings Weekend, Movie Nights, and other random activities like glow-in-the-dark Capture the Flag, roller skating, and Late-Night-Bites."
