Learn and Serve Information for Students

NUCAP kitchenAs a Niagara University student, you'll be asked to participate in service through some courses, campus activities, clubs and sports. You are always welcome to participate in organized service programs and through individualized opportunities.  

Service can be personally rewarding, it can help you to investigate careers, make professional connections, build your resume, and help make connections between classroom material and outside experiences.
