Molly Conrad found a university close to home where creating her own best version of herself wasn't just possible. It was encouraged. This budding musician is certainly Ambrosian.
Natividad HirschBautista found an international perspective within an open and welcoming environment. Luke Staudt found a place to swing a golf club, expand his spirituality and enrich the lives of others along the way. Both are Ambrosian, in word and in deed.
This year, 3,605 intellectually earnest and curious SAU students joined with an engaged and student-focused faculty to create a learning environment that earned a top 30 ranking in the most recent US News & World Report evaluation of the best universities in the Midwest.
Beyond the classroom, St. Ambrose students found ways to enrich lives through fulfilling, service-oriented activities like a Dance Marathon program that in 2013 was cited as the best debut marathon in the nation and, for a 2014 encore, raised more than $132,000 to assist children fighting long-term Illnesses. Considering that, it's easy to see why SAU has earned a place on the President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll in each of the past five years.
St. Ambrose students also interact with an international student population representing 17 different nations, and take advantage of Study Abroad opportunities to travel to more than 30 foreign lands. Combined with a community of tens of thousands of alumni who daily live their commitment to social justice and service, the art of being Ambrosian is going global.
"I Am Ambrosian" is a two-week story-telling campaign recently shared across multiple social media channels to highlight the experiences and valued memories of SAU students and alumni, and the ways they believe they are Ambrosian.
