Local Atmosphere: I love the friendly feel as you walk through campus. Everyone on campus is so nice and willing to help out. Not to mention, we just got a new President, and he is really turning things around!

Local Atmosphere: A very good school with a small but close community. Although if you don't live on campus its hard to get into that community.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Joliet considered s city, so it is bigger than most towns. Joliet gives a vibe of suburbia and the actual city of Chicago. Joliet has a lot to offer. There are a couple of shopping malls within a 20 minutes drive. Joliet downtown offers a lot of diversity of shopping centers, food, and entertainment. The expressway is also nearby the school for easy access.

2 College Student

Local Atmosphere: Cold, Unwelcoming – The students and professors at St. Francis offer little to the individual person, the atmosphere being discouraging and cold.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The local atmosphere is genuine and very welcoming. Everyone is pretty much friends and knows one another.
