Top-tier Education, Affordable Cost

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!"


In the Spotlight: Jose Colon '17, Owner, Stars Cafe

Jose Colon's desire to help others is matched by his zest for entrepreneurialism. These two passions have come together in Stars Café, the new coffee shop he opened in the Bushwick neighborhood in Brooklyn earlier this year.

In the Spotlight: Gerard Olexson '63, BS in Chemistry

Gerard Olexson may have enrolled at St. Francis College more than 60 years ago, but the lessons he learned here linger to this day. The very capable staff at the college provided Olexson with foresight to develop many of his life-changing plans.


2019 Alumni Night

Hear From Our Alumni & Friends

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.

Kenneth Daly

Class of 1988, President, National Grid, New York

“A goal of mine is to pay St. Francis back for the scholarship Brother George gave me. Part of that is with contributions, but what I enjoy most is working with the students.”

Theresa Franchi

Class of 2016, BS/MS in Accounting

"As an Endowed Scholarship recipient I have learned so much about the spirit of giving. It's not about what we can do for ourselves. It's about what we can do for others and our community."
