About Saint Francis University

Saint Francis University is the oldest Franciscan institution of higher learning in the United States.  Saint Francis University is a Catholic, coeducational liberal arts University sponsored by the Franciscans of the Third Order Regular. The seeds of what has become Saint Francis University were planted by six Franciscan friars from Ireland who founded a boys' academy in the mountain hamlet of Loretto, Pennsylvania. Saint Francis University was soon given the power to grant degrees by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and was one of the first Catholic co-ed colleges in the nation.
