Matty and Schotty's Little Slice Of Love

Matty is not even sure what he's about to eat

Matty is not even sure what he's about to eat

We're back! Recently it came to our attention that not everyone loves to read "Little Slice of Love." This obviously blew our minds considering we thought everyone loved and enjoyed our wit and humor.

After hearing this devastating news, I had to go back to Vegas to take out my frustrations with tequilla and men at the pool at the hotel Encore. Matty was spending time in Vermont taking on the Ben and Jerry's "Vermonster," which if you are unaware of consists of 20 scoops of ice cream, four ladles of hot fudge, three cookies, four toppings, and if I mention the rest I might just get sick myself.

After getting two calls from him saying he was, "Gonna be sick! Gonna be sick," I realized that neither of us had to take our anger out on calories, but instead get to know the students of Niagara University more. We wanted to know how the students at NU feel about the University. In order to do this, Matty and I went around campus and asked students to write something they like, dislike, or want changed about NU. Students were asked to write their response anonymously on a small piece of paper and put it into our highly technical tissue box.

On a side note, we are sorry to those of you who had to go without our column in the last two issues of the Index. To those of you who don't like this column but are still continuing to go through each issue to read it anyway, at least we are getting you to read something! And just an FYI, if you don't like it, you could always ... I don't know ... turn the page?

Below are the responses to the question: What do you like, dislike, or want changed about Niagara University?


  • I love the opportunity to work alongside truly talented and established professors. 
  • I don't like NU's obsession to reap you of every cent that you have.
  • Do away with designated parking!
  • I don't like the lack of respect from some of the faculty toward the students.
  • I would like Gally, Clet and the Library to have later hours.
  • I would like to learn more in Philosophy than debating over and over whether or not God exists.
  • I like that the professors know who you are and know your first name.
  • I did not like the food on campus.
  • I would change the food services.
  • I want more tolerance at NU of all groups of people/forms of speech and expression.
  • I like the togetherness and small classroom sizes.
  • I like the great professors and interesting courses.
  • I dislike all the fines, quiet hours are too early, the school's lack of embracing diversity and the cost.

  • Get rid of the "designated smoking areas" they're useless- and at $35,000 a year in tuition, students should be allowed to smoke anywhere. We're already inhaling toxic fumes that consumes Niagara Falls, smoking is the least of our issues.

  • Better food selection at Clet.
  • The food sucks here, we need to take out Sodexo and put in something of better quality.

  • I hate Clet.
  • I would change the Athletic Department.

  • I don't like that the school- doesn't listen to what the students actually want!
  • I hate the fact that students get fined for everything that they do. Don't they have enough of my money?
  • The school should allow students to have a very, very small pet.
