This is a great school. I can't wait to get back in a few weeks. I miss everyone. I will be a sophomore and loved my freshman year. All of my friends are coming back.

Bonaventure is small but has big school benefits. A top basketball team, excellent facilities, lots of school spirit. It really feels like home. Bonaventure also has one of the top school newspapers and radio stations. Dorm life is fun and students are close-knit.
