We're looking ahead to another 150 years of excellence in education

St. Bonaventure University marked its 150th anniversary in 2008-2009, celebrating a rich history of providing extraordinary educational experiences and opportunities. We continue to have distinguished faculty, excellent academic offerings and a community of Franciscan friars and sisters committed to our mission.

In the past few years, we have invested millions of dollars in updating and expanding our facilities, which has transformed our campus and infused our curriculum. As the nation’s premier Franciscan University, St. Bonaventure University instills in students a real passion for learning and living. Our professors are committed and approachable faculty who dedicate themselves to making connections - among themselves, their courses and, most importantly, their students. 

It's this caring commitment that links learning to living at SBU and makes a Bonaventure education the experience of a lifetime. We invite you to join us as we journey into the future!
