It all started with six friars from Ireland. In 1847, nearly fifteen years before the start of the Civil War, Brother Giles Carroll along with five of his brothers cleared land in the forests of Loretto, Pennsylvania, to build a school that would one day become Saint Francis University.
Historically, the university is one of the first 20 Catholic universities and the first Franciscan college to be founded in the United States. It is also one of the first Catholic universities to become co-educational in the United States.
Today, the vibrant university campus sits on 600 scenic acres providing ideal setting not only for focused learning in harmony with nature. The magnificent former Charles M. Schwab Estate and Gardens (now Mount Assisi Friary), Lake Saint Francis and Immergrun Golf Club border the academic core situated on the campus mall.
