4 College Junior

Academics: the campus is great, and most of the professors I have had have been close to amazing. They are available to answer questions and give you extra help with course work. Class discussion is encouraged in smaller classes and makes it worth going to class.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: There are a few 18-and-older clubs, but I say skip the clubs. House parties are free, the music is better, and you don't have to pay for a cab back to campus.

4 College Junior

Academics: I've been very satisfied with my education thus far. I'm a Meeting and Event Management major, and all of my professors have been out in the field and are very accomplished in the industry. I've had some of the best instructors who know a lot of important people. If you get to know them on a personal level, they can do wonders for you when it comes to networking or getting a job.

Health & Safety: Safe and Secure – You always see security riding around campus, I have never felt unsafe walking around during the day or night. Bonaventure is a small campus where everyone knows everyone, that kind of togetherness really shapes the security of students.

1 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: the houses tend to be ragged. They are unkempt and the landlords charge an arm and a leg. The houses are too far from campus and people are constantly walking into the houses on the weekends because they think there will be a party.

4 College Sophomore

Technology: THe computers and the technology at our school is amazing. they have set up a system to where you can print from your computer. The web portal allows you to access anything from your computer anywhere on campus

2 College Sophomore

Parking: Saint Bonaventure is very strict with parking, if a student is parked in a spot for too long they are fined. The student parking is located in the back along with the visitors parking and a lot of people don't know that, so they end up being fined for not having a permit.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: At Saint Bonaventure, there are lots of classes to choose from. Your advisor works with you making sure your workload is at a nice balance. The professors are very good and they will help you if you have questions. The professor to student ratio is very good so you have quality time with your professor if you need to ask questions. They also provide tutors and review classes to make sure you are successful. I love Saint Bonaventure!

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It's easy to find, prices are reasonable and the added freedom is good.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: Saint Bonaventure prides itself in providing students with much-needed tuition assistance and welcomes them. Saint Bonaventure helps students by providing the education and plays a role in recruiting and retaining diversity in the student body.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Saint Bonaventure University is known for its basketball team. They get a lot of attention and the games are very well attended. You can see them on TV. The rugby team has become more and more popular with their increasing success. The baseball team does well and is well attended by students.

2 College Sophomore

Transportation: They do provide a shuttle bus but honestly it would be better if it ran during the day.

2 College Sophomore

Diversity: Its not very diverse so it would be really nice if there was more diversity.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: I love my major it is fun and exciting and there are a lot of hands on activities instead of sitting at a desk or a lecture in a classroom

4 College Sophomore

Administration: Honestly the campus is strict about realistic issues and not ones that really aren't that big of a deal

5 College Sophomore

Academics: At St. Bonaventure there are a ton of classes available both on campus and online

3 College Sophomore

Weather: In olean it snows all the time, but most of the students are from the area or are use to the snow so we usually are good at making the most out of it and still having a blast.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Basically at Saint Bonaventure if you aren't on either of the basketball teams the school doesn't even recognize you as unfortunate at that sounds

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Varsity athletics are not very good at St. Bonaventure University but our men's basketball team gets a lot of the attention and those events are pretty well attended. Our rugby teams are club sports and have become more and more popular among the student body with their increasing success. Baseball is the only other sport that is pretty well attended by students.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Although St. Bonaventure University is a small school there is not much in terms of transportation. A lot of students have cars on campus but for those who do not there is a bus that runs a loop at night. This bus makes stops all along campus and then makes it way to Walmart and the small shopping plaza in the area. There is also a bus that operates on weekends in order to take students into the small surrounding town and local bars.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I came to St. Bonaventure University because of the student body size. I liked being able to have smaller classes where professors learned their students names. Recently St. Bonaventure has added building, such as the Business building that allows for more recent technology to be used by students. Overall, the school offers technology, good academic selections, helpful professors, and a friendly environment located in a small town.

Health & Safety: I feel safe on campus. I believe that some areas could be light more. The security staff is usually traveling around the campus to guarantee the safety of the students.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: I received a decent amount of financial aid. If you get your forms in on time then you guarantee the aid. Majority of the aid was for living on campus which was reasonable.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The professors in all the departments are amazing. They really know what they're talking about and want to help the students understand, too. The registration process really isn't as bad as it seems. Being a freshman and having to register is a pain because all the upperclassmen get to pick classes first, but all schools will have that. The workload in manageable. You'll have weeks where you think you're going to die from the work load, but other weeks you will not have much to do. Every class will have different requirements. It depends upon the class and the professor. Studying abroad is highly encouraged here. There are always posters around looking for people to go to Italy or Spain for six weeks in the summer. Many people go to Oxford in England for six weeks in the summer, or they go for an entire semester. It depends on where you want to go, Bonaventure will make it happen.
