4 College Freshman

Academics: I chose to come to University of St.Francis because of the small school atmosphere. The professors are great and always willing to give extra help. They are always available by appointment for more help or just to advise. I actually like going to class because I feel more of a student rather than just a number like a bigger university.

5 College Freshman

Academics: I'm in the Nursing College at the University of St.Francis and I've been very pleased with everything for this program. The workload is a lot but it is only preparing you for the real world. I have not gotten to the internship/ job opportunities but I've heard that the job placement is excellent. The curriculum is well taught and the facilities are very helpful.

4 College Freshman

Academics: USF has a high quality education that is offered to the students. The professors are always available to help outside of the academic resources.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: They have many offers for tutoring and they keep the study areas open later during finals to help out.
