Saint Francis University has its strengths and its weaknesses, but the flaws of the University are tremendously outweighed by the assets. The rural setting of the campus may not be for everyone, but most students appreciate the beauty, safety, and seclusion of the campus while still being able to take advantage of the city life that is only a short drive away. A larger campus may be preferred by some, but the small class sizes and personal relationships make Saint Francis students feel important and always supported. Some buildings may be outdated, but state-of-the-art renovations are constantly being made around campus to ensure that it is always exciting and accommodating. Saint Francis is a small, rural university, but every aspect of the school itself is outstanding.

The strong sense of community is what draws students to Saint Francis and keeps them attached throughout their college experience. Students say they are completely comfortable at Saint Francis, and they truly feel like the University community is their home away from home. The relationships among students, faculty, and administration are strong and unique. Everyone who works at the University is extremely passionate about their jobs and greatly dedicated to helping the students succeed. There are countless opportunities for student engagement at Saint Francis, like impressive academic programs, active student organizations, exciting study abroad options, and remarkable job placement opportunities. Saint Francis students say they have every opportunity to reach their potentials in academics, leadership, athletics, and beyond.
