Second Year in a Row Washington Monthly Honors SFC
With a new president ready to begin the school year, St. Francis College heads into the Labor Day weekend with an honor from Washington Monthly magazine, named for a second year in a row as a Best Bang for the Buck among colleges in the northeast.
Washington Monthly looks at "Social Mobility (recruiting and graduating low-income students), Research (producing cutting-edge scholarship and PhDs), and Service (encouraging students to give something back to their country)" as a way to "rate schools based on what they are doing for the country."

The accolade from Washington Monthly is the latest in a string of honors that includes recognition from Forbes and Money as well as research by the New York Times that shows St. Francis among the top colleges in the country paving the way for students to enjoy economic mobility.
The fall semester begins next week with Terrier Tuesday on September 5, a block party where St. Francis will welcome its 19th President, Miguel Martinez-Saenz as well as all incoming freshmen and transfer students for an afternoon to come together and bond with new classmates and learn about all the college clubs and activities. Classes begin Wednesday.
