  • School of Sciences Highlights

    • Our new Science Center is a 70,000 square-foot facility that opened in the Fall of  2013. The Science Center houses enhanced teaching & lab spaces, research & outreach facilities, and state-of-the-art collaboration areas for students.
    • Undergraduate research is a large part of the School of Sciences experience at Saint Francis. Students have unique opportunities to conduct undergraduate research during the school year and in the summer, even as early as following freshman year.
    • Our faculty members have been highly successful in receiving external funding for the enhancement of undergraduate science education, both in the classroom and in the laboratory.
    • Our students practice their new skills through outreach activities such as Science Day, Darwin Day, Rural Outreach Chemistry for Kids (ROCK), PA Statistics Poster Competition, and Pi Day.
    • Many students also take part in a collaborative initiative with the science department of Juniata College to participate in the Raystown Lake Field Station Immersion Semester.
