What Students Are Saying

3.71 Average Rating
My advice to prospective students would be to visit Saint Francis. I fell in love with the campus as soon as i set foot on campus and the faculty and staff of the university really do an excellent job at selling the university to perspective students and their families. Saint Francis University is an excellent school and any student would be wise to attend the school.

Try and have things on your resume that make you stand out like volunteer work, sports, getting published, being a Boy Scout or Girl Scout. Apply early because you don't want your application to get lost in the traffic of other applications.
Marissa from Ellicott City, MD
The Admissions Office here is really helpful. Stay in touch with them during the testing and admissions process. Visit the University. The professors here are happy to speak with you about their classes. Then, stay in touch. Once you get in, pursue your interests vigorously! I also love voice and guitar. Within a couple of weeks I was part of a weekly jam session. Here you have the opportunity to pursue everything you love -- Go for it!

-Study hard and do your work on time. As a student in high school who never had to study, college hit me hard when I actually had to study for a math class.

-Don't procrastinate. The professors will give you projects to work on, and they will generally give you a window of time to get it done. If you wait until the last minute all of your other work will seem to pile up and you will start to feel smothered.

-Find your own place where you like to study. If you share a room with someone else, and they are distracting, you will need somewhere else to go. Saint Francis has many great places to study, which is a great perk about the school.

-Get involved! In order to meet new people and make the most of your college experience, no matter which college you attend, joining clubs and becoming active on campus is a great way to get your foot in the door. Specifically at Saint Francis, they have over 20 groups to get involved, and offer a Study Abroad program for the adventurous.
