St. Bonaventure is a very welcoming school with equally welcoming staff and students. This school has such a great atmosphere, not only for learning but also for other things. I would recommend St. Bonaventure to anyone.

eileen from west sayville, ny
Saint Bonaventure has a welcoming atmosphere. When they say once a Bonnie, always a Bonnie, they mean it. No one comes together like a Saint Bonaventure family.
Alicia from Lynn, MA
Everyone here is like a big family. The classes are great and really enjoyable and the campus is gorgeous. The professors are great and always willing to help you if needed.
Shelby from Webster, NY
St. Bonaventure is a fantastic institution that offers a comprehensive liberal arts education to all majors. Its Journalism/Mass Communication program and its Business program are extremely prestigious; anyone looking into either of those fields would be a fool not to consider Bona's. It is also a relatively small university, which makes for a very personal approach to teaching; your professors get to know you on a first-name basis and are always available outside of class to work with you on approaches that will help you to hone your strengths.
Julia from Woodstock, GA
St. Bonaventure University is a place where everyone can find a home. I am constantly joining new clubs and making new friends. It is a supportive environment where I know I can go to faculty and staff for advice in any area of life, whether it be academic, extra-curricular, or personal.
Brianna from East Haven, CT
I love Saint Bonaventure University. The professors are great and willing to help. There is such a great family atmosphere and the Bona spirit is wonderful! It's truly home away from home!
DANIEL from Rochester, NY
St. Bonaventure is a campus where anything is possible. There are plenty of open spaces, the teachers are so helpful, and everyone seems to be there to learn. The class size is a real advantage, the professors know every student and personalize some instruction to help keep everyone involved.
