Naz Giving Day

Naz Giving Day surpasses goal

On April 6, Nazareth’s fifth annual Naz Giving Day exceeded expectations and surpassed the goal of 1,500 gifts in 24 hours, with a new record of 1,979 gifts! Additionally, those gifts helped reach a stellar new record of over $500,000 raised on Naz Giving Day! 

Students, faculty, and staff on campus enjoyed a Naz Giving Day party with T-shirt and swag giveaways, food trucks, a DJ, and a balloon collage made possible by our friends at Airigami. In just one day, thousands of alumni and friends generously helped to shine a light on the future of Nazareth. Thank you to all who participated. 
Thank you

Concert for Ukraine

Concerts for a cause

The Nazareth community came together on three different occasions to use the power of music to make a difference. Two concerts for Ukraine raised over $6,500 for ROC Maidan to send 100 tactical medical kits to Nazareth's sister university in the city of Ostroh in Ukraine. Nazareth's choirs and music therapy program partnered with the Alzheimer's Association to present an accessible, interactive concert for people living with Alzheimer’s or other dementias. 

CARS showcases Naz students’ inquiries

CARS, Nazareth’s Creative Activity and Research Showcase, is the highlight of the academic year. We gather as a community to celebrate the remarkable creative activity and research of our undergraduate and graduate students across our array of programs. The event has inquiry at its heart, spurred by faculty and staff mentoring and collaboration.
