1 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I've recently taken up petroleum engineering at this school and I hate it. The engineering department is awful. So many of the teachers here are under qualified. A physics lab teacher was teaching physics after taking Calculus 3 the semester before. This education system is terrible.

1 College Senior

Campus Housing: It's a hit or miss. Mostly miss.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Don't care enough for it.

1 College Senior

Athletics: About 40% of incoming freshman play a sport and about 25% of them transfer because they are manipulated by scholarship money they were suppose to receive. Most students come in ineligible but the university doesn't tell them until they are already enrolled here. Which puts them in a stuck position until they transfer. Not only that trying to get a release might be the hardest thing because the school is worried about their retention rate rather than worrying if the student is happy or not.

1 College Senior

Overall Experience: Overall this might be the worse university in western PA. The school is very money hungry and doesn't care about students who aren't athletes. They are too consumed on how they are viewed by others that don't attend the school. Rather than focus on their students her on campus. It is very expensive and isn't worth the student debt. They will find a way to make you fail rather than help you succeed. It's a very small campus with a student to faculty of 1:15 yet students are still unnoticed. If you are in need of help they just push you along to the next person. The only thing good about it is that you can go home over break and take a breather from this place.

Saint Francis University has its strengths and its weaknesses, but the flaws of the University are tremendously outweighed by the assets.
