"I wouldn't recommend this school to anyone who wants to pursue pre-dental, med or anything of the sort. There are very limited options when it comes to getting certain teachers. There is one physics teacher, and one organic chemistry teacher. Even the brightest students find themselves at risk for failing the class, and it's not hard to pick up on details through the grape vine. People have to take the classes at another school, the teacher derives pleasure from failing the students and doesn't care since she's on pension, the exams are unfair etc. I haven't got this far to experience it first hand, but to hear the vast majority of upperclassmen making the same complaints is a major red flag. In addition, many students don't even make it to medical school. I've met so many seniors on the pre-med track who won't even be going. In addition, many students have been financially duped in one way or another. Athletes are promised full ride scholarships and find themselves paying for room and board. Honors students are told that they are on full scholarship, yet despite the fact that the majority don't even dorm, they still had to dish money out to the school (eg lab fees). Many students are encouraged to apply for loans. Another experience I hear other people go through, and it's also one i've experienced myself is being told that the tuition costs a certain amount, yet when you actually get to the school you're paying more. Peronally, they refused to tell you how much it will cost for the whole year before I started. I asked so many questions and they dodged them like Donald Trump. They had my FAFSA and tax returns for weeks and couldn't even spit out an estimate. They subtract the 200 deposit you have to make from the overall for ONE TERM, and then you end up paying that plus 200. The financial aid department is tricky and greedy. I experienced difficulty getting my AP and CLEP credits to fall into place. Save yourself from the ruined future job prospects, debt, stress etc. Don't bother with this school."

"St. Francis College is an awesome school to attend if you like small, intimate settings. It is kind of like a second family. You meet so many different people, and the professors tend to remember you by name. They are caring and seek to help you with every part of your education. I was always able to meet with professors and this helped me to stay focused and succeed. The financial aid department, and the registrar can be a hassle to deal with at times. Other than that, the school is great for extra curricular activities, especially if you want to be a leader in some way or if you'd like to start your own. They are generous with scholarships, although the tuition is constantly rising!"

"St. Francis College provides an extremely welcoming environment, where faculty, students and staff are friendly and supportive. I am grateful for attending St. Francis College because it has allowed me to grow as an individual and I am more confident in building the career I want. I majored in psychology and had very supportive professors who encouraged me throughout my four years. Additionally, St. Francis College provides one opportunities that are unique to a small private college. Some include, being able to be easily involved on campus through clubs, organizations or school events and, working on campus. I was fortunate enough to become a Student Assistant at the Center for Student Success (CSS) during my freshman year and worked there for all four years. By being a Student Assistant it not only motivated me to become more involved on campus but also gave me the opportunity to connect with students and faculty. In addition, I became involved in numerous clubs in which I had some leadership positions. By being a more active member of the St. Francis community it allowed me to grow as a person and made me realize what type of career I want. I became more aware of my passion to make a difference in a persons life and decided to pursue my Masters in Social Work after graduating from SFC. I received a lot of support from professors and advisors from the CSS who were very encouraging, and helped me while I applied to graduate schools during my senior year. Lastly, I am extremely grateful for their constant support and for the many opportunities St. Francis College has given me would highly recommend attending this college to anyone."

"St. Francis College is a small liberal arts college. It is located in Brooklyn Heights section of Brooklyn, NY. The diversity on the campus is very apparent and there are always activities on campus for student to engage in. As a student that transferred there after my second year of college at another institution, I felt that I made the right decision to transfer to St. Francis College."

"I transferred to the University of Connecticut my junior year of my undergraduate career. Overall, I loved my time at UConn. The classes were academically challenging, the professors were knowledgeable, and the campus community was thriving. Being a psychology major, there were many options for classes I could take. The classes were very interesting while also fulfilling graduation requirements. The professors at UConn were knowledgeable and always available to meet with their students. This was something that I was very impressed with based on the size of the university. Campus life was thriving. There was always something to do through student activities or athletics. Students wanted to stay on weekends to go to events and get involved instead of going home. This made the campus community strong and exciting."
