St. John Fisher College is a coeducational liberal arts institution located in Pittsford, N.Y., just minutes from downtown Rochester. The campus community is home to over 2,600 full-time undergraduates, nearly 200 part-time undergraduates, and over 1,000 graduate students.
Founded in 1948 by the Congregation of St. Basil as a Catholic College for men, St. John Fisher College became independent in 1968 and coeducational in 1971. As it moves through the twenty-first century, the College remains true to its Catholic and Basilian heritage. Fisher now offers 37 academic majors in the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, business, education, and nursing; 11 pre-professional programs; 13 master's programs; and three doctoral degrees.
