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.

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.

5 College Junior

Facilities: I have to say, I live on the most beautiful campus that ever there was. The architecture is magic and it's gorgeous year round. We're surrounded by mountains. Our athletic centers are top notch. We don't really have a student center...

Our library is straight out of Hogwarts; it is the most magical and beautiful place. Someone told me once that we are in a record book for having the longest uninterrupted lawn on any campus in the nation. I don't know if that's true, but we have two very big lawns that are great for laying out, kan jam, and just about anything a lawn can be used for. We host a ton of events on campus and they're always great.

We have a museum on campus, and a wonderful chapel. There's also a friary that's very welcoming- a golden retriever lives there.
