It’s almost time to welcome new members to the Residence Life staff! On Feb. 1, prefect applications are due, and applicants may be starting to feel the pressure of their upcoming interviews.

Off Campus Adventures

Posted by Ashley Krause on Tue, Nov 27, 2018 @ 14:11 PM

One of the first reactions people have when I tell them I go to school at Saint Vincent is: “Isn’t that in the middle of nowhere?!” Well … kind of … but there’s actually a lot to do around here. I’ve always liked small-town living, which is one thing that really made me fall in love with this campus. We have our own little community that is quiet and separate from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Freshman year of college. We met A LOT of people at once. It was honestly overwhelming! Trying to find your place and establish new friends at a new school. Some people came to college with their friends or at least knew some names on campus, while others were completely lost and had to seek out friends on their own. No matter which of those categories you fall under, everyone seeks new friendships and wants to connect with others outside their circle.

My Favorite Shots

Posted by Alexander Byers on Mon, Jun 11, 2018 @ 13:06 PM

I haven’t worked for Saint Vincent for very long, but over the past 2 and a half years I was able to capture some pretty fun, interesting and amazing shots.
