Saint Francis University
Saint Francis University is one of the oldest Catholic universities in the country, and the oldest celebrating Franciscan values. Our scenic campus sits on a mountain top in Loretto, Pennsylvania, near Pittsburgh. Generosity, respect, discovery, and joy are in our DNA, and we seek to attract students (like you) with a passion to shape the world. Success means discovering your talents and sharing them with others. Focused career preparation blended with a rich liberal arts tradition (where you explore many passions) can help you find your path.
All are welcome to walk with Francis. St. Francis of Assisi, through his Catholic-Franciscan mission, left us an abundance of clues for living a meaningful life that speaks to all faiths. Strengthen your faith. We’re the second mountain on the right. Saint Francis isn't just near the great outdoors, it is the great outdoors. High in the Laurel Highlands of Pennsylvania, you'll find a home away from home in this vibrant and safe campus community full of student activities, leadership opportunities and spiritual programs.
