Franciscan University of Steubenville Reviews
The school is a great place to receive an well-rounded liberal arts education that is extremely faith/reason-based. The professors are very available for students and small class sizes help students from going under the radar and not actually learning. Personally I didn’t find the academics to be very rigorous, though I have learned very, very much and my love for school and academia would not have been possible without Franciscan. I also had the opportunity to do NCAA sports at the university. Many people support the student-athletes though there really isn’t any support at all from students outside of those who are already involved in a sport. It has its flaws like any school, but it’s professors are unmatched.
The academics at FUS are of top caliber and class. The diversity on campus, on the other hand, is lackluster but not inexistent. There is a very strong acceptance of all ethnicities on campus granted they follow Catholic social teaching. The campus itself is a gem. The cleanliness is remarkable and with trees and green space being everywhere is a very beautiful campus. the athletics are competitive but not exceptional. The professors are top quality and come from all walks of life. Where diversity may lack in student population the administration and Professors do not. The local area of Steubenville is without question, abysmal and unsafe. However, the school is located atop a high hill with ample security and privacy. The dorms are rather nice for a university and the food is of high quality.
So far Franciscan has been great! As a freshman I was not sure if it would fit me, but I can now say that I love it here and I would not trade it for the world. It gives me a good balance of Faith, Academics, and other aspects that I believe will help me become a better person. I would definitely consider looking at Franciscan if you are looking for a well rounded education and for something that will push you to become a better person.
