Gabriella - 11/20/2019

I was invited to attend a BBQ the first day before I started my Freshman year at St.Francis. Here , I met everyone I would be spending the next four years of my life with. Everyone was outside participating in the activities . From professors , to staff , even the principle. This is when I knew I made the right choice. A month into my freshman year , I was offered a job as a student worker in admissions and I am so appreciative of that opportunity. I am now in my second year and I am a Criminal Justice Major. Most of my professors have had some involvement with law enforcement in the past so it is good to have first hand stories that are shared with me. We take our basketball games very seriously , just as we do any other sports. Overall , St.Francis is like a home to me and I appreciate everyone there and the environment we create as a community.

Aliyah - 06/29/2019

St, Francis is the ideal higher educational institution for me. The classroom holds about 30 -40 people. The professors know your name and acknowledge both in class and around campus. The food here is pretty good. The location of this college is convenient with plenty of food services to choose from plus having Brooklyn Bridge not too far! What I really enjoy was the Environmental Empathy Art exhibit at St. Francis College.

Kavon - 04/28/2019

It's a very nice and clean college they have a variety of sports that u can play and the classroom there look really nice as well.Also they have a nice libaray and they have people that can help u with tutoring and finding jobs.Overall I really like the college and I feel like if people were to come here they would love it.

Michael - 07/09/2018

It was a really good school. I liked the campus and the location, right in the heart of Brooklyn. One stop away from Manhattan and It's just a very good school overall. The staff and students were very friendly when I paid the campus a visit and the surrounding areas are nice as well

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    If I could go back in time and talk to myself as a highschool senior the advice I would give myself would be first take my SAT's and go straight to a four year college. I did not take my SAT's in highschool, Therefore, I went to a community college and obtained my assosciate's degree. After graduating highschool I took some time off and then decided to go to school. That was a big mistake. I would tell myself that a college degree is very important and not only does it open career paths but it's a self accomplishment. I would suggest to visit different college campuses and really think about what my major would be. I would tell myself that in order to have success in life its a must to attend college & obtain a degree. I would also emphasize on how school has to be my only one priority. The number one key to success in life is an educaton. The last little bit of advice I would give would be "Think of when you have your kids, you want them to say my mother is a professonal. She graduated from Saint Francis College!"

  7. Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

    the school is unique. it was started by franciscan brothers in 1859 and it took off ever since. this scool is affordable and the people are very friendly and they care about you compared to if you went to an Ivy league university that they don't even know your name. plus the classes are smaller so the professors can give you one on one attention so that you can do well. it also has a nice community feeling and the transportation is not far away.

  8. What kind of person should attend this school?

    Someone serious about college and willing to make oppurtunities happen for themselves. For example, I would like to study abroad. Since the school is smaller they dont have too many connections with study abroad programs so if I want to study at a particular institution I need to do the research and handle most of the communication. This is a school where you can grow up and become independant, I did in just a few months. I feel if you are attending school for the right reasons(education and growth) you will fit in well here.
