    I loved the friendly and welcoming environment at st. Bonaventure. There is a clear comradery between all the students and alumni. I've never felt unsafe during the time I spent there and I would highly recommend checking it out! the attention and help you will receive far surpasses that of any other school I've seen. The teachers are extremely invested in each and every student and the students are always trying to help one another. It's a D1 school so sports games are a must and the athletic facilities are outstanding. The campus is small but has a very beautiful view and well kept look, not at all institutional like many other schools which I have visited. Their ability to meet students need as far as tuition is out of this world especially for a private school. I hope this Helps anyone who's looking here. Bonnas is definitely worth your time!

    I am a freshman at St. Bonaventure and have already fallen in love with the school in my short time here. The atmosphere provides a strong sense of community and the students are generally very kind to one another. The sporting events, especially basketball games, are what makes the school so great. Bonaventure fans are definitely one of a kind! Great party scene too!
    St. Bonaventure University is a decent university. Depending on what major you choose you will either be in debt or make a good living. I am enjoying my time here but things are changing.

    Social Life- Social life is what you make of it. Parties do get shut down and the local law enforcement is taking extreme measures at trying to prevent gatherings of people off-campus. Including extreme fines and tickets. People still go out though because the weekends are their time off.

    Sports- Sports games are usually well attended, Basketball is probably the best time of the year and the time where kids show their true school spirit.

    Student Body - Students first, and everything else second. Execpet basketball season. Most people are nice, very sociable, like having fun.

    Academics- Some teachers are amazing, while others just try to push liberal ideas to you.
