Peter Heuer

Niagara University, NY

“I knew I wanted to attend Niagara as an Education major since I was a sophomore in High School. Niagara's Education program has garnered and maintained the highest respect both nationally and internationally. Academically, there was no questioning my decision. My only fear was that as a commuter, I would miss out on the “college experience”. Niagara, however, has provided me an environment in which I have become both academically and socially involved. Through campus activities and my experience working with Niagara's Radio Station and Theatre Department I have begun new experiences that continue to grow every day.”

University of Portland; Portland, OR

Hometown: Boise, ID

Major: Nursing

“The University of Portland creates its own community on The Bluff. I compete in Cross Country and Track. Even though we are in a large school division for sports (NCAA Division I), we have the feel of a small school. You can go anywhere on campus and find someone to talk to or hang out with. Classes are small, and your professors want you to succeed. Nothing can be better than getting on a first name basis with a professor and being noticed in a class.”
