University of Saint Francis was my very first choice in colleges because it is a small private Catholic college and close to where I live. The campus is always clean and kept up well. Everyone at the school is very helpful and respectful. Professors are always available to help when need and there are other helpful resources.
The University of St. Francis is a great little school. There we have small classrooms, a great community, good teachers and almost daily events to keep the students involved. There are some problems like Freshman housing, internet problems, and many of the teacher work at other schools so you may want to set up a meeting if you need some help.
I have enjoyed my first year at USF. some classes I have enjoyed more than other classes, but that is to be expected at any school. I would say that even in the classes I did not like I was able to learn and get something new out of that class. The people are friendly and for someone like me who is naturally shy it can be awkward at times, but it is more of a benefit, as shy people do not necessarily have to reach out in order to make friends. New friends will reach out to them. Plus in freshman/new student orientation to sessions and activities planned by the school help people to meet and talk with fellow new students who just may become your friends. I am still talking with a handful of the fellow students I meet at the orientation. Even if you have not become friends with someone, seeing someone you meet at orientation helps to reduce the anxiety of being in a new situation were you know no-one as there is a good chance you will recognize at least one person.
I enjoy going to the University of St Francis. It is a great school with many opportunities all the time. The teachers are always helpful, the students are super sweet, and the housing lifestyle is just right. I am on the dance team there, and I love being on an athletic teams. I feel so involved and welcomed all the time, and I am glad I chose this school!

Finding the right college for your area of interest from the beginning can save a lot of time and money. Take the time to learn about the pros and cons of different colleges and visit them so that you are able to make an educated decision. Know your financial aid package well in advance if possible. Once you have made your decision and start your first semester, be cautious about over living your new found freedom. College is both expensive and important. Take your education seriously. I also recommend that new students try different cultural experiences as they become available through the college of your choice.
St.Francis is a small, welcoming community that strives to help its students do well in whatever field of study they choose.
A lot of the time I feel as if the food is the worst part about living at school. Students have next to no control over what we are eating. Although it's not, it can sometimes feel as if we are eating the same thing over and over again. The majority of what we eat is not very healthy either compared to what we might choose for ourselves at home. I know I miss and appreciate my moms cooking a lot more since I have been living at school.
Everyone at USF is friendly and helpful when you have questions or simply want to talk.
The best thing about my school are my instructors who offer real life experiences along with book knowledge.
I can't remember anything that I would have known before I started this school.
It's a very small school compared to the other schools around Chicago.
A person who is unsure of their goals in completing the nursing program or who are unsure that this is the career path they should be on should not attend this school. If they are serious about attending, completing and becoming a nurse than this is the school for them .
This school is best known for its Nursing and Education. And it is a great place to do pre-medical as well.
Anyone who feels they would benefit from teachers who really are invested in their students so that they may become better individuals should attend. It is truly a journey at the University of St. Francis. A person does not leave the doors the last time being the same person they were when they first arrived. Not only are the franciscan values taught in theology classes, but many people are living examles of the schools values: service, integrity, respect, and compassion. Anyone who wants a strong caring environment like this as well as receiving a great education should consider St. Francis
The most fustrating thing about my school is the room charges added to your bill. If something is damaged in the building the bill is split between everyone, which over a semester can really add up. Also the bookstore is overpriced by an unreasonable amount, you can find the same book for much cheaper almost anywhere else.
The smaller class sizes really allow for more individual attention to each student. Also, the teachers, really genuinely care about the student as an individual and want the students to succeed. Teachers believe that students can and will make a difference in their own lives through the benefits of their education, but also in the lives of others by giving back through their careers. I have seen many teachers be caring and compassionate to students who fall on hard times not only due to the stress of college, but due to life challenges as well.
