    St. Francis is a wonderful place to begin your college experience. The staff and security are very welcoming and friendly, and they truly care about each and every student. The small environment and comfortable class sizes provide the ideal learning environment for student engagement. Caring staff professionals and experienced professors are unique, lifelong mentors that motivate, aid and encourage students to maximize their opportunities while in school, and after they graduate. There are a wide variety of majors and minors to choose from at this seemingly small college that provide strong, useful and meaningful foundations and experiences to career minded graduates. These invaluable positions allow students to quickly apply what they have learned while making connections and developing a strong, competitive skill set that will serve them throughout their lives. St. Francis is like having a home away from home!

    So far, my experience at St. Francis College has been life changing! The diversity here is quite impressive, with clubs catering for cultures as well as religious groups. The professors are super friendly and very approachable; they always have an eye out for you. The classrooms are the perfect size for someone who is shy or anxious to give a class presentation; it holds about 30 or more people as compared to other institutions with lecture halls holding as much as 100 people!
    I just finished my sophomore year at St. Francis and as a Brooklyn native, still living at home, I can say that it is very easy to not be involved with this school. There is school pride, the professors are really great and I prefer the smaller class sizes, but I don't see much effort being put into them wanting most students to be involved in something. There isn't really a "campus," it's just a 7-floor building so this isn't the school for you if you're looking for that "college experience". Yes, it's located in beautiful Brooklyn Heights, but it's craziness all day so if you have a car... it's not even worth it to drive there. It's nice in the spring/summer, but for me, when it's cold, it is not fun to go to class in that environment. For these reasons, I'm looking to transfer away, but if this sounds like this could work for you, good luck!! Just remember, your experience here will be what YOU make it to be.
