    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).

    Upcoming Open House Programs

    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.

    Individual Weekday Visits

    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

    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.

    • Saturday visits will resume in the Fall
