A fantastic education combined with a fantastic atmosphere make for a wonderful experience! Best programs are Theology, Catechetics, Education, and Nursing, but all of the programs are wonderful. Campus is very safe, with the city being less safe but not horribly dangerous. The only downside is that there is not much to do nearby, but Pittsburgh is 45 minutes away!
Review Franciscan University of Steubenville
As a nursing Alumni I absolutely loved how I was not just another student because the professors knew each of us personally! We, as nursing students, were taught to care for each of our patients on not only a physical level of an illness, but also caring for people on a spiritual and emotional level which really sets this program above and beyond the rest in my opinion!
On another note, it wasn't until Franciscan that I learned what a true friendship is - one that is centered with Christ as the "glue".
One of the reasons I personally choose this school was because the years of 18-24
are some of the most influential and forming years of one's life besides young childhood and thus I wanted to surround myself in an environment that would be positive, uplifting, academically challenging and where I could grow & flourish within my Catholicism with my fellow peers and that is exactly what I did. I don't regret it one bit and I now can't imagine my life with Franciscan.
The student life here is very excellent, with Households (Christian "fraternities" and "sororities") at the centre. Franciscan has exceptional academics with professors who are dedicated to their students. I am also a participant in the Great Books Honors program here which I think is an excellent example of what our liberal arts are like. We are very strong in Theology, which I think is wonderful, although sometimes I think the administration needs to remember to not sacrifice other programs just because Theology is what we are well known for. Overall, I think FUS does a superb job forming lay disciples to go forth and sanctify the temporal order.
