Danielle Francavilla

Class of 2019

“The McGuire Scholarship represents opportunity in every sense of the word. When it came time to apply for college, I knew it would be a financial stretch to attend a private school. I applied to SFC; a few weeks later I received a call informing me that I qualified for a new scholarship created by the owner of the NY Mets!"

Dean Brown

Class of 2010, BA in Psychology

I chose St Francis because I needed a radical change. I wanted a school that had a Division I athletic program where I could build my athletic career and foster a successful academic career. I wanted a school that provided easy access to professors and one with a tight knit, helpful culture.
