Saint Francis University has been designated a 2018 Top 10 Gold Military Friendly® School by Victory Media.
Schools with a "Top 10" designation are considered by Victory Media to be "the best of the best" nationwide in embracing military students and dedicating resources to ensure their success in the
classroom and after graduation.
“Being selected for the 8th straight year as a Gold
Military-Friendly School, (this year with a Top 10 designation) is a wonderful
celebration of our continued effort to support our military students,” said
SFU President Fr. Malachi Van Tassell, T.O.R., PhD.
He continued, “At Saint Francis University, we challenge our students to become the person each is meant to be—someone who is willing to sacrifice for the greater good. In the case of
our military students, that challenge is an integral part of their moral fiber. Investing in the success of military students and their families is a win-win for the university and our country.”
The university's service-focused mission couples well with their duties as active duty or
reservist men and women. SFU also welcomes veterans who have honorably served and now successfully transition into the classroom where
they contribute a great deal of real life experiences with younger
students. SFU maintain a strong ROTC program and an active on campus
Student Veteran Organization. The university also serves dependent children and spouses of eligible military personnel.
