Why I Attend Saint Vincent

Posted by Sarah Malone on Mon, Feb 13, 2017 @ 16:02 PM

As a student, it is easy to forget why we are attending college at all. Too often we get caught up in the dates and assignments, the exams that seem to come in floods every few weeks, the stress of juggling sports, activities, good health, socialization and the almost always forgotten, getting enough sleep. Sometimes, striking a balance between all our responsibilities is incredibly difficult, and it doesn’t leave us with much time to sit back and think about what we are really doing here. So, friends, fellow students and even faculty, I suggest we take a few minutes to do just that.

Thai food and fun with the Honors Program

Posted by Gina Valotta on Fri, Oct 14, 2016 @ 11:10 AM

Friday night, students in Dr. McMahon’s Honors Systematic Theology I and Dr. Sharbaugh’s Honors First Theology classes gathered for a night of food, fellowship and culture. 

We traveled to Squirrel Hill to eat dinner at Curry on Murray, a Thai restaurant on Murray Avenue.  For some, it was a first-time experience trying Thai cuisine.  We tried dumplings and crab rangoon, and most ordered the classic Pad Thai dish for dinner. We enjoyed an evening getting to know our fellow classmates and professors outside of the classroom while eating delicious food.

SVC: The Full Package

Posted by Maura Snyder on Wed, Apr 6, 2016 @ 15:04 PM

Hi Neighbors! 

Maura here! I wanted to talk a little bit about my research experience at Saint Vincent. When I chose to be a psychology major, I knew that I would have to go to grad school if I wanted any of the cool psych jobs ;) But when I decided to go to a small liberal arts college, I had so many people tell me that I wouldn't get the same research experience that I would at a big university and this would leave me behind when it came time to apply for grad school.

Of Sledding and Rut-dwelling

Posted by Nathan DelMaramo on Wed, Jan 27, 2016 @ 16:01 PM

I don't remember the last time I went sledding. Or rather, I don't remember the last time I went sledding before this past Saturday. Covered in a beautiful blanket of snow, the many slopes of Saint Vincent's campus provide ideal spots for this winter activity. While the heavy snowfall has had a huge impact on the Northeast this past weekend, I would say that Saint Vincent is quite fortunate to have received it without the biting winds that often cut through campus and through even the thickest winter coats.
