I must say that attending Saint Bonaventure UniversityQuite BrightJournalism
I must say that attending Saint Bonaventure University was the absolute best decision I have ever made in my entire life. It is a very special place with fantastic people where you will develop special relationships and friendships that will last a lifetime.

The faculty and staff go above and beyond to make sure you receive a great education. They are always around to help and they get to know your name. It is a great feeling to be recognized and known by name.

The social life is also wonderful. Olean may be a smaller town and not a huge city atmosphere, but it doesn't matter. There are so many activities and events going on at campus to keep you occupied. There are also some great local eateries in town as well. I attended every home basketball game and have traveled to away games. There is nothing like the energy and excitement of a Bona's basketball game. I still make it back to campus now and then to catch a game.Talk to anyone that went to Saint Bonaventure and I guarantee you they will have nothing but fantastic things to say about it. I consider it my second home. I have more special memories from Bona's than anywhere else. I would strongly urge everyone to look into attending this great university.

St. Bonaventure isn't near any large city, unlessQuite BrightJournalism
St. Bonaventure isn't near any large city, unless you consider Buffalo, which is over an hour away. But, it never mattered to me. I love seeing people I know everywhere, and being friends with my professors and knowing that there is always someone to help me when I need it. There is certainly a bond here among students that honestly cannot be understood unless you have spent time living at the university. It's the Bona Bubble, the good journey ... you name it. I will forever love Bonaventur; thankful for all it's given and taught me and hoping to always be able to visit when I finally move away from here.
