"I never wanted to go to a small school; I had always pictured myself at a big school in the city. I had decided pretty early on that I wanted to go to Pitt, but then the day I was about to submit my deposit, something made me hold off and take a second look at Saint Vincent. I couldn't be happier that I did. 

Two things that really stick out for me are the class sizes that allow you to interact with your professors and just the overall family feeling that the entire community has. There's just so many great people here. By coming to Saint Vincent, I know that I've made the right choice and have made friends that will last a lifetime."

William GonsowskiDuring my senior year of high school I felt that the primary need that had to be addressed in my college decision was furthering my cross country and track career. The proud tradition of the Saint Vincent team and the personal characters of the coaches and runners were primary factors in my decision. However, life does not always go as planned. Injuries and other factors have prevented my collegiate running career from reaching the potential I hoped for in high school. I am not bitter about this because I am fortunate to have found a home in SVC despite my decision being made on a program I am no longer a part of. The student body is warm and embracing. The faculty is passionate and cares about the individual achievement of the students. The culture of SVC is unlike anything I have ever experienced, and I am grateful for all of the relationships that I have developed in my time here.

“I’ve always had this dream to travel and explore the history of my faith. Saint Vincent has provided me the opportunity to go above and beyond those dreams, and make them a reality. I wasn’t really sure what to expect upon entering the Vatican, but when I went in, I was lost for words. Having Mass with the Pope, seeing thousands of people from all over the world in the same place and giving praise to God was more powerful than anything I could possibly imagine. This experience gave me so much reassurance that this world will never lose its faith in Jesus Christ.”
