'When people ask where I go to school, I can't help but smile when I say, 'Saint Joe's!' Saint Joseph's University is more than just a school to me. From my days as an undergraduate, to my current graduate studies, Saint Joe's has been a constant positive and motivating force in my life. Everyday was an opportunity to learn; inside and outside of the classroom. The four years I spent as a student at Saint Joe's were the best years of my life. When I decided to pursue Graduate School for Secondary Education, I looked no further than Saint Joe's. The support and encouragement I received from the faculty at Saint Joe's (both past and present), means more to me than I can ever express. Their unfailing dedication and belief in their students is what makes Saint Joe's stand above the rest.'

Welcome To Saint Joseph's University

Founded in 1851, in the Jesuit Catholic tradition, Saint Joseph's University educates students with the purpose of creating compassionate, tolerant, and productive members of society. Saint Joseph's strives to inspire alumni who create a better world and environment than which came before.

'I was working in New York City, commuting two hours each way every day, working a 50 or 60 hour work week. I did not think it would be possible to keep working until I was qualified to switch careers from retail and eCommerce to teaching. The online OATCERT program at Saint Joe's gave me the opportunity to do so. I researched other programs but felt that Saint Joe's placed the right emphasis on training me how to teach as well as the online flexibility. I was nervous at first about going to school online, but the professors have been very involved and supportive and the interaction with the other students is just as rewarding as face to face classroom time. I am so much happier now that I am close to my goal of teaching and am growing intellectually.'
