SFU is a welcoming community.
SFU is a great educational environment.
SFU helps you reach higher and go far!
Jessica from Northern Cambria, PA
The campus is bigger than I thought it would be and everyone is very approachable. The rural setting is nice but Altoona is 30 miles away so you can get there if necessary. There are tons of activities and things to do everyday and academic success is stressed.
