Saint Joseph's University was founded by the Jesuits — visionary Catholic priests and educators who prioritized social justice, the pursuit of excellence, service to others, and the development of the whole person, or, cura personalis. One of only 28 universities and colleges nationwide exemplifying this 500-year- old Jesuit tradition, SJU offers each of its students an educational experience that will hone their skills, expand their knowledge, grow their faith and strengthen their character.
“I still get excited when I'm on the highway and I see the sign for ‘Saint Joseph's University, exit 339. This is where I'm supposed to be. I'm always able to do what I love here, and I have a great support system of administration, faculty, and friends. Every time I turn a corner here, there's somebody I can say ‘hi' to.”
