Niagara University will hold a series of events throughout the fall to highlight individual academic areas of interest.

The next showcase in the series is set for Monday, Nov. 11, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. with an education showcase, during which students interested in teaching will have a chance to learn more about why teachers are in such high demand.

Students interested in theatre can connect with theatre faculty and participate in a mini-masterclass at the theatre showcase and workshop on Saturday, Nov. 23, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Niagara University’s Leary Theatre.

Niagara University’s academic program showcase events are appropriate for high school junior and seniors looking for more in-depth information on their academic area of interest in a more casual setting. Pre-registration is encouraged. To find out more information, and to register, visit, or call 1.800.462.2111.

The first event took place this past week and focused on health care-related majors of interest, including nursing, social work, and the pre-health professions program, which is geared for students interested in dentistry, human medicine, veterinary medicine, pharmacy, and optometry. The showcase featured guest speaker C.J. Urlaub, president and CEO of Mercy Hospital of Buffalo, and students in attendance had a chance to tour NU’s state-of-the-art Skills Lab and Simulation Center.
