Amazing staff and a beautiful campus! The curriculum is challenging enough to keep me interested but not hard to understand. If having a difficult time, SFU offers many resources to students to help them.
Saint Francis University is such a great school to attend. They have a lot of activities during the week and on the weekends to try to give students a home away from home. They offer masses to attend so students can attend a church if they want to. We have a lot of Greek Life on campus, which I am a part of, that gives students a way to connect with others and to make friends. I would like to change the parking up here. It is really difficult for some students to walk in the snow or to their dorms. The lighting around campus is also kind of dim and could definitely be lighter.
It's not a bad school, if you're a health science major this school is tailored for you. The food and party scene is pretty bad, but there are really good professors here! We definitely need more food variety on campus that can encompass those with dietary restrictions. They will care about how you do and help you in any way that you can. The surrounding area is pretty bleak. On the weekends a lot of students go home so there isn't much to do on campus, however in Altoona there is more to do if you have a car!

I love the small school feel, along with the teachers who are willing to help you in any way they can. The school can feel kind of isolating sometimes since there isn't much around it.
I have been a student at Saint Francis University for 2 years now, and I love everything about the school. Although the school is "in the middle of nowhere", the scenery is beautiful! No matter the weather, students are out and about. The professors and everyone else that work at the University are nice and care about you and your education. The University offers students many opportunities to get involved. This includes club sports, Greek life, clubs such as Best Buddies, Colleges Against Cancer, Habitat for Humanity, ect. Altogether, I have grown so much as a person since I started my education at Saint Francis Univeristy
I thought that it was pretty good campus, the atmosphere was nice, and the people there were nice. Although there were two drawbacks. The first was that freshman don't have A/C and they get a small living space. The second was it's basically in the middle of nowhere and there's not much to do. However, the university does try very hard to do fun activities.
Saint Francis University has a unique environment. The visitation days for students interested in attending the university are very helpful and it's nice to see that the professors remember you.
I like to say if you go up some mountains, then go up some more mountains, you'll finally reach Saint Francis University. Being a small university in the middle of nowhere, the students become a tight-knit community who support each other. Whenever there are events, whether is be sport, art, music, etc., the student body shows up to support each other. I made some really good friends that I still communicate with and visit.
I love the environment of Saint Francis University. It's a small town college that reminds me a lot of home as I view this campus as my second home. The students and staff at this university want to see others around them succeed and work towards a better life. We are a tight knit community as a smaller campus everyone is aware of each other from everyday interactions. I love attending and hopefully will graduate from the college amongst the pines.
I really love Saint Francis. I have had really amazing experiences with everyone on the campus. All of the faculty are friendly and caring. The professors are all approachable and flexible. I think the campus is beautiful as well. I really wish they would stop cutting down trees and removing so many of the bushes and shrubs around campus.
I love the small, hometown feel of the campus. Also, the professors are fantastic here. I would like to see the dorms updated and the directors of Residence Life fired and new people brought in
I like the people on campus, everyone is nice and easily approachable. I love the support and easy access to professors.
I love SFU. There are many opportunities to do things outside of the classroom. The classes are challenging, which I appreciate because it makes me think more.
I love that Saint Francis University is a small school among the pines. The people and professors there really make sure you are not only prepared academically, but for being apart of the community.
This will become your home away from home and the place you long to be. This hidden gem on the mountain top is a community like no other.
Saint Francis is a wonderfu, small university with great programs of study and Division 1 athletics.
Saint Francis University is a great small school. There is a ton of hands on experience and more opportunities than one may see at a larger school. The professors are so incredibly nice and will help as long as you go to their office hours. The social atmosphere is great if you are and athlete, but if you are not involved in sports it can be kind of hard to feel like you "fit in" so to say. It can feel like a giant high school sometimes as well.

I am currently taking classes online for my Master's program. My current experience with Saint Francis has been wonderful.
Saint Francis was not my top choice, but I'm very glad I ended up deciding to go there. The class sizes are small, so there is a lot of one on one time with professors. Also, the professors are extremely committed to helping you succeed and will work with you to make sure you are reaching your full potential. The campus is very small and not around any bigger cities, but the school has activities almost every weekend to make sure students have something to do.
I love this Univeristy. They have a wonderful staff who cares about the education of their students. The university I located in wonderful little town and the campus is beautiful and well maintained. They have a wonderful adult degree and continuting education program.
