Here are the newest designs for the third tier of windows at Niagara University.  It reflects the academic areas of the Niagara Alumni Nursing program.  At the very top, the Military Nurses are honored.  The star with the banner represents all of the branches of the military.  The alums say that these nurses are the most honorable of all nursing branches.
Each window is represented by three different types of deciduous trees.  The bottom, research, is represented by the elm tree.  The second, academics, is represented by the ginko tree and the third, leadership, is represented by the oak tree.  All of these trees are of an old and hardwood line.
