Student & Graduate Reviews

4.2 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2014

The University of Saint Francis is an excellent small Catholic University in Fort Wayne. USF is steeped in the Catholic tradition of service to others and respecting the dignity of all creation. USF has excellent professors who have graduated from some of the nation's top schools. USF has state of the art classrooms with a 14 to one student professor ratio which allowed us extra time with the professors in the event that we needed extra instruction. I really enjoyed obtaining my Bachelor's in Psychology, and my Master's in Mental Health Counseling from USF because I was able to work while attending classes. USF also offered multiple opportunities for grants, scholarships, and other forms of financial aid for students that were need and/or merit based. USF prepared me to pass my licensure exam, and I truly believe that USF has prepared me for the next step of my school career as a Doctoral student at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh. Thank you for reading my essay, and thank you for the opportunity to continue my education with less debt.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2017

I feel as if it is overpriced considering the facilities at the University. The professors and students are strong.

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2017

The only con I really felt with my graduate program was that I could not take as many courses as I wanted to per semester just because the classes were not offered at that time.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros of my graduate program include small class size, supportive faculty members, and quality education. The cons of my graduate program include costly tuition, small campus, and the stress of the program as it is extremely intense.
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2015

Problem based learning is an excellent way to learn. Our class size is very small and the staff and professors are very approachable. Fort Wayne isn't my favorite place, but its only two and a half years!

I have enjoyed my graduate classes thus far. The professors have all been great and I have learned a lot
2.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2014

The Physician Assistant career is a great one and, if you are a very hard worker, in the end it doesn't really matter where you go to school. However, I would NOT recommend the St Francis program. The satellite campus in Albuquerque, NM is treated like dirt compared to the main campus in Joliet, IL. The building here is rundown and in a dangerous part of town. The administration is disorganized and uncaring. It is ridiculously expensive and there is very little student support. I will make it out in the end and find a job, but it was a rocky road with a lot of wasted opportunity for quality healthcare training. Sorry for the bad review, but it is the truth.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

The education provided in this program is well diversified for various learning styles and accessibility. The program accommodates the hectic lifestyle of a professional learner with online, hybrid, and on-campus classes. Some of the most beneficial aspects are the simulation lab and clinical learning experiences. The only con to this program is the tuition. On average my tuition is almost $9,000 per semester and I am not a resident student.
4.08 out of 5.0
Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2015

Some of the pros include flexibility from the online courses but still having access to the social life of the university. The con of my program is that it is portfolio based. I would have liked a thesis or internship based program.
4.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Nurse Practitioner (Family)
Graduation Year: 2014

The University of St. Francis's FNP program has and is a wonderful experience. The instructors have all been very understanding to the adult learner needs of work and family and the sometimes unexpected life obsticle. The on-line environement has really been fun and the people in the financial aid office have made applying for student loans a no-hassel experience. I am truly fortunate to be a part of the USF and their FNP program. I wouldn't want to have it any other way.
