From La Salle University

Life is an adventure. La Salle makes you an Explorer.

For nearly 160 years, La Salle University has been helping students become the people they truly wish to be. We offer a liberal arts education with skills that employers seek, experiential learning at an AACSB-accredited business school, and interprofessional education at a nursing and health sciences school in one of the largest healthcare hubs in the nation.

Our faculty members will know your name and your story, and guide you towards internships, research, and study abroad opportunities that will help you grow. We are consistently ranked for value and outcomes by organizations including U.S. News & World Report and Forbes. And with 100+ clubs and societies and 19 varsity sports, there will always be something new to explore.

You’ll be challenged at La Salle, but you will be supported every step of the way.
