Saint Vincent College

Latrobe, PA, USA
3.61 Average Rating

Founded in 1846, Saint Vincent College is a private institution operated by Benedictine monks. The college combines Catholic and Benedictine tradition with a liberal arts and sciences curriculum. Rated as having “selective” admissions, the college is divided into four schools, each with its own Dean who works closely with students. Saint Vincent College has taken steps to become more sustainable by constructing new LEED Gold certified buildings, restoring water quality at the nearby Monastery Run, and operating a 50-acre Winnie Palmer Nature Reserve.

What Students Are Saying

3.61 Average Rating
I think Saint Vincent is a 9 out of 10. It is a family here and the classes push you. I just wish there was more to do on and around campus.
Samantha from Irwin, PA
Saint Vincent is a rather quiet, rural college. The professors are generally pretty good and with the small class sizes it is easy to meet with professors on a regular basis. Overall, Saint Vincent is a good college and a good place to receive an education.
Student from Greensburg, PA
The staff and students at Saint Vincent College are a very welcoming to prospective students. They answer any possible questions and are consistently friendly and inviting. Saint Vincent is highly focused on academics, yet seems to lend itself for an enjoyable experience.

This was an excellent choice for me. I would strongly recommend this college for anyone who wants to be prepared for their career. The faculty are helpful, knowledgeable and care about the success of the students.
Denise from Blairsville, PA
SVC is a good institution filled with wonderful teachers, faculty and staff. As an international student they really make you feel at home. The monks also play a great part in the SVC community and are open to new cultures and people.

Saint Vincent College can be described as a diamond in the rough because when you first visit Latrobe, you automatically assume its a party school since its in a localized urban area. However, it is anything but with its beautiful campus, friendly staff and students, and overall sense of enjoyment and peace. This school might not be for everyone but it is for those select few.
Christina from Aquasco, MD
Saint Vincent College is filled with opportunities that allow one to grow and reach their highest potential. This college is not like most; at Saint Vincent College your professors know you. You are not a number at Saint Vincent College
