4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Our school is filled with a lot of good looking people. A lot of our student body is active whether its playing a sport or just shooting hoops and working out in the richter. The guys are very active as well and take full advantage of our gym.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I am madly and completely in love with my school. i would absolutely never choose another school if i had to go back and do it all over again. I love the fact that i can walk into a room and know my opinion matters. i love the positive and encouraging energy around campus. i love the friends i have met and and will meet in the future. i love the amount of leniency they give up. I would not want to be at any other school than St. Bonaventure University.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The camps police is strict on their policies but they don't have eyes and ears everywhere.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: I think the dining hall needs a lot of improvements. The food it not very good. There are very minimal healthy options and simple things like a working toaster are hard to come by.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: Everyone on campus comes from different backgrounds whether it is be financial, socially, or ethnically. Are campus is very diverse.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There arent very many options for off campus dining and there are not any healthy options either.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: I think the work load for my major is very fair and reasonable.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: the professor are incredible. they are always helpful and ready to answer questions. The registration process is frustrating and stressful but your advisor does their best to make it go as smooth and easy for you.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The housing isnt the best but it isnt the worst. The cleaning staff do their best to keep the place nice and clean but the students are always the most respectful bunch.

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: The facilities on campus are great. the Richter center which is our campus gym and recreational center is all new and great for exercise and friendly sports games.

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: i feel like our school is unique in the way that it truly is like a family. When something drastic happens on campus, the school as a whole deals with it and comforts each other. The professors generally care about the success of their students and that is what stuck out for me the most when i was college searching.

1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Saint Bonaventure doesnt have greek life. there are no fraternities or sororities.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are a ton of houses off campus but i wouldn't say that they are in the best of condition. the people that live in them do not always take the best care of them and they end up looking extremely dirty. The houses are really nice, it just depend on house well you want to take care of them.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: security is always available and they always take their job or anything situation that is unsafe seriously.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Most students live on campus, which helps build the community. I love living on campus. There are many different options from dorms to suites to apartment style living. The freshmen dorms are getting a 7 million dollar makeover this summer. The dorms are close to everything: the gym, the dining hall, and the classrooms.

4 College Junior

Athletics: There is a high student involvement in sports on campus. We are a D1 school, and have a hand-full of varsity sports. The most popular sport is basketball. Everyone loves going to the games. I participate in a club sport and it gives me the opportunity to be a part of a team.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: Anyone who lives in a dorm that does not have an individual kitchen is required to have an unlimited meal plan at SBU. There are options for flex dollars, and 5 places on campus where they can be used. There is no late night or 24 hour option. Aramark has a monopoly on the food service at SBU.

5 College Junior

Academics: The education program at SBU is one of the top 25 in the nation; however, it is a rigorous and time consuming program. There are many opportunities to learn within the classroom. The faculty is great and cares about the students' success. It is easy to be hired with a degree in education from SBU.

5 College Junior

Academics: The registration process is all done on-line. The professors care about the students' success. The curriculum in rigorous and there is a somewhat heavy workload for most majors. There are many study abroad options. The most popular schools are Journalism and Mass Communications, Business, Arts and Sciences, and Education. There is a core curriculum, the Clare College, which connects all of the students with a similar background of knowledge and experiences. St. Bonaventure University is a Franciscan university.

College Junior

Greek Life: SBU does not have Greek life. Students connect together as "Bonnies" rather than separate into different Greek organizations.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are mostly local restaurants for off-campus dining, but some fast food restaurants. Many of the restaurants deliver to the campus. There is great Chinese food, pizza, subs, and wings that all deliver.

5 College Junior

Majors: As a student of the School of Education, I am required to spend multiple hours in the classroom. The faculty at SBU makes it very easy for students to be connected with teachers and schools. Education students spend two semesters learning and working in the schools under as part of their credit hours, and a third semester student teaching. I am not worried about finding a student teaching position because I know that the faculty at SBU will match me to the perfect teacher and class.

5 College Junior

Majors: I love the education program at SBU. The faculty truly cares about the students' success. I am planning on becoming an Early Childhood or Elementary teacher for about three years and then returning to SBU for a graduate degree in Educational Leadership. I then plan to go into school administration and receive a Doctorate in Education. I would love to retire from the educational system and complete the circle as a professor of education at St. Bonaventure University.

5 College Junior

Facilities: The Campus Activities Board (CAB) provides many fun opportunities for students. There are trips to professional sporting events, New York City, and they hold an annual Spring Weekend festival. There is a beautiful library that is open until 1 AM, and a coffee shop that is open until 2 AM. There is a state-of-the-art athletic center open for student use, as well as a paved path along the Alleganey River. SBU has the most amount of green spaces than any other univeristy in the nation. The students at SBU participate in many traditions including the candel light ceremonies for freshman induction and senior graduation, and Blessing of the Brains and Late Night Breakfast before each finals week.

5 College Junior

Facilities: St. Bonaventure University is the first Franciscan univeristy in the United States, and is full of Franciscan tradition. It holds the largest collection of Franciscan manuscripts next to Assisi. The buildings on campus were designed to create an atmosphere similar to that of Assisi. SBU has pre-doctoral programs, business programs, and journalism programs, just to name a few. Their School of Education is one of the top 25 in the nation, and is nationally certified. All students participate in a core curriculum, the Clare College, which connects the students with a common set of knowledge and background.
