“Saint Vincent has helped me expand my knowledge and desire to learn more and more. This school has challenged me in more ways than one, and I have already become a stronger individual overall in my academics and personality. This program at Saint Vincent has also helped me realize how many options I have for my future career and this school is dedicated to getting me to where I need to go.”

Ryan P. McElhinney

Norwin High School, 2016
Physics Major
SVC Class of 2020

“I have only spent one semester at Saint Vincent, but it already feels like I have been here for years. This could probably be credited to my comfort level with the people I have met and how my professors have made me comfortable with the material I am being taught. Saint Vincent wants you to succeed and offers many study opportunities so that you can excel in your major. There are weekly collaborative learning programs, highly available tutors and it is very easy to meet personally with a professor. I can only imagine how prepared I, and most of my classmates, will be for the jobs we are pursuing after four years.”

Kayla Slovenec

Fox Chapel High School, 2016
Communication Major
SVC Class of 2020

“Saint Vincent has helped me grow tremendously since I first arrived. I came in undecided and not knowing what I wanted my path to be in life. With the help of many professors, friends, my basketball coach and the Opportunity Office, I was able to have support that gave me confidence in becoming a communication major. I have grown as a student and have learned so much valuable knowledge that I know will carry with me after I graduate. I am lucky to have Saint Vincent as my second home.”

Ande Greco

Greensburg Salem High School, 2014
Engineering Science and Biology Major and Mathematics Minor
SVC Class of 2018

“From the rigorous classes that teach me lifelong learning skills, caring faculty members who are always willing to help and kind staff members who greet me with a smile, to the numerous friendships that will last a lifetime, Saint Vincent has become my second home. Everyone is always willing to assist you and they want to see you succeed. Coming to Saint Vincent was one of the best decisions I made.”

Maddie Leya

Seton LaSalle Catholic  High School, 2016
International Business Major, Operational Excellence Minor
SVC Class of 2020

“Saint Vincent College has helped me grow as a person spiritually and professionally. It has given me the chance to grow closer to God through opportunities such as retreats, praise and worship nights, and fellowship within the community. Saint Vincent has excellent professors who are willing to help in and outside of the classroom, providing guidance and advice. My advisor has recommended me for the SAP Business One program that is a special Saint Vincent-only opportunity, and through the study abroad process, I will be studying in Rome, Berlin and London. Saint Vincent has and will provide me with incredible opportunities and experiences that will leave me well-prepared for a successful future.”

Scott Myers  

Hempfield Area High School, 2017
Biochemistry Major
SVC Class of 2021

“Saint Vincent has given me the opportunity to succeed both in the classroom and through the exemplary career services made available. Coming to Saint Vincent helped me realize my potential and has pushed me to achieve.”

Sharon Nincke

Greensburg Central Catholic High School, 2015
Marketing Major 
SVC Class of 2019

“Between working in the Admission office and prefecting, I have grown immensely as a person. Being a prefect has pushed me and has also put me out of my comfort zone, but it has taught me that I am capable of handling much more than I ever thought I could. Saint Vincent was a natural choice for me as the environment is warm and welcoming. I can say that Saint Vincent has become my second home.”

Jordan Bordonaro

Highlands High School, 2013
3/2 engineering Major
SVC Class of 2018

“I liked that Saint Vincent was Catholic and thought it would help keep me grounded. I also knew that it had an excellent academic program. I discovered that their financial aid programs make it very affordable. I am paying for school myself and it turned out that five years in this program is less expensive than four years at another engineering school and I will have two degrees. And, finally, I am close with my big family and going to Saint Vincent enables me to visit my parents, my three sisters and my grandma.  Saint Vincent has challenged me academically. I have a friend who is a year ahead of me in the 3/2 program and is already at Pitt studying electrical engineering. He said that he thought Saint Vincent really prepared him well. I feel the same way so far because the teachers are all wonderful.”

Patrick Coyle

Notre Dame High School, East Stroudsburg, 2014
Management Major
SVC Class of 2018

“The reason I started my LLC was because I wanted to test all the things I learned last year, such as what I learned in my introduction to management course and especially a lot of focus on what I learned in my accounting course. Though, what I really want to do is web design in the Poconos, particularly I want to create a local events and services website sometime in the future. I noticed that I like to pick things up and just start doing it. I like to teach myself new skills and to adapt what I’ve learned at Saint Vincent through my studies and through the OE trip to Turkey as well as using my creative interests to build my business ventures, my career. Each interest and each experience has opened up a whole new round of possibilities for me.”

Maria Franey

Franklin Regional Senior High School, 2015
Biochemistry Major
SVC Class of 2019

“Attending Saint Vincent College has been one of the most rewarding experiences in my life because not only does it have excellent education standards, it also provides opportunities for students to learn outside of the usual classroom setting. The entire campus exudes a welcoming atmosphere, and people with varying interests and views find ways to get along. They cooperate in order to make their organization, as well as each other, better. That's why I love SVC. Here, it's not about becoming a great student, it's about becoming a great person.”

Justin Hoffman

Katharine Stallings

Environmental Science Major
SVC Class of 2018

“Saint Vincent has helped me find out who I am supposed to be. I've been able to travel to different states and national parks with the Outdoors Club. Those trips and experiences made me realize that I want to be a park ranger. I was also able to go on a service trip to Alaska. Being in Alaska made me realize how important it is to leave your comfort zone and take advantage of all of the opportunities that Saint Vincent has to offer.”
