            Nipissing University one fo the best Universities to Study in.

            I was one of the first graduating classes from Nipissing University in 1995 with a BBA. It was an amazing place to study and an excellent atmosphere. The faculty were approachable and genuinely willing to help you succeed. You were not just a number in a class of 400-500 students. I also have realized from others who have graduated from other universities that we actually covered more and received in my opinion a better rounded education. I would recommend Nipissing University to anyone who is serious about getting an education that will help them in today's work world.YYScott BarberYPresident at The Richmond ClubY2000 – 2004, Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA)

            Excellent Opportunities

            I was able to truly take advantage of the small class sizes, personal connections with professors and tight network of people within the BPHE program. Nipissing gave me the opportunity to gain valuable experience both as a student (in placements around the community) and an employee (Research Assistant opportunity). The opportunities that I was given were a direct result of the personal relationships with the professors, and have helped shape my future (pursuing a masters degree). The professors at Nipissing are extremely welcoming, knowledgable and caring. They want to see their students and graduates be successful in the future, and they prepare you adequately. I would recommend Nipissing to any student who is looking for an easy transition from life at home to life at school, and is willing to take advantage of excellent opportunities within the school and around the community.
