Visiting First-Year Students & Families: Download our Visitors Guide
There’s a certain feeling to the University that just doesn’t come through in a brochure. We recommend that you walk around the campus, talk to the people, and shake the trees!
Saint Francis University is located in Loretto, PA, about two hours east of Pittsburgh. And although our campus is on a mountain, it is near major routes traveling east and west (Route 22), or north and south (Interstate 99).
Your day will include the opportunity to learn more about academic programs and campus life during our Academic & Co-Curricular Opportunities Fair, a walking tour of campus, presentations on the admission and financial aid process, and a current student panel Q&A. Lunch is also provided at Torvian Dining Hall.
An individual visit has a much more flexible itinerary than group visits, with appointments offered Monday-Friday, year round. Most visits include a campus tour and a meeting with your admission counselor, but you can personalize your visit to fit your interests. By request, we can also set up appointments with professors in any academic department, or staff members in other areas of interest. And, of course, we’ll treat you to lunch!
Saturday Preview Days, led by an admissions staff member, primarily discuss academics, admissions, and financial aid, and last 45-60 minutes. A student-guided Campus Tour highlights many topics that are important to first-year students including housing, dining, academics and extracurricular activities.
The best way for graduate students to schedule a visit is to contact the graduate program in which they are pursuing an advanced degree.
Adult Degree & Continuing Studies advisors are available to meet with you, and can help you design a complete education and career plan. If you are a prospective Adult Degree & Continuing Studies student and would like to schedule a visit, please contact any of the following advisors:
