Life on Campus

Off Campus Adventures

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.
