hi everyone! just wanted to wish you a merry christmas and happy new year and all that...:)
Hi! I just stumbled across this community doing a random search of NU. doesn't seem to be all that active, but maybe we can change that or something.
Here's my story.. I looked at NU when I was trying to choose a college (graduated HS in 1999) and I really liked it there but I couldnt afford it. So I went to school at Wright State University in Dayton OH which is where I grew up.
after graduation from WSU with a degree in Mass Communication(Broadcast) I was drifting.. and decided to take my sister up on her offer to let me live with her and her family in the BUffalo area. I searched some jobs, applied for a sports infomation spot with NU and ended up getting a gig as an announcer. So, I started last year and I did the PA Announcing for mens/womens soccer, women's hockey, women's basketball, swimming and softball. I fill in occasionally for men's hockey (my personal favorite) and volleyball.
Its a really swell job, I greatly enjoy it and its good experience so maybe one day I can get that "real job" taht seems so elusive.
So hopefully we'll get some more people up in this joint and until then, go Purple Eagles!
P.S. the men's soccer team won today 3-0. Goals by Rafael Venturini, Matt Stedman and Danny O'Shea. Eric Sullivan with the shutout for the Purple Eagles. :)
ok maybe if i post here then other people will see it and think that this community is still alive...
so... i love it here at NU!
Hello all, I created this community for anyone who has anything to do with or any interest in Niagara University. I am part of the class of 1997. I haven't been up that way in a long while and nostalgia struck me so I figured that I would create this community and see if I can get anyone to join it.
So feel free to post, reply, join, what have you! I look forward to hearing from lots of new people!
