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
Franciscan University is a place rich in Christ. There are very few places like Franciscan and it was truly a blessing to go to college where my faith was put first. The University encourages students to strive to be their best, but through our faith in Christ and the sacraments. In addition to the beautiful presence of Catholicism on campus, the Education Department staff symbolized a small family unit to me. The professors genuinely cared and make strong efforts to get to know each of their students. I highly recommend Franciscan University to those who wish to dive deeper with Christ all while growing and becoming prepared academically.
As an undergrad, I often complained about everything from the food to the workload to the hypocrisy of the student leadership. Later, when I actually had to live in the real world, I realized what a wonderful gift the school was and had been to me. I am a better person, and exponentially better at my profession as an educator because of the philosophical, Catholic background I received from Franciscan. I am ecstatic that the school not only accepted my child as a student, but gave a very generous financial aid package for him as well.
