Top 5 Reasons to Choose SAU

Bookmark and Share

In the spirit of David Letterman and top (insert number) lists everywhere, here's the top 5 reasons you should choose St. Ambrose University, as offered by the very people who live and work here:

  1. Affordability. More than 90 percent of our students receive financial aid. Academic scholarships range from our University Grant to athletics and arts scholarships to the full-tuition Ambrose Scholar Award.
  2. Residential living. Known for having the best college housing in the Midwest, Ambrose's residence halls feature large rooms with cable TV and high-speed Internet access, kitchens, private bathrooms and even housekeeping services.
  3. Our faculty and staff. Their commitment to developing the whole person is unmatched. Many faculty even give out their phone number!
  4. Quality Liberal Arts Education. More than 70 majors, 50 clubs and organizations, 23 varsity athletics....
  5. The Quad Cities. From major concerts to sporting events to shopping and great nightlife, there's something for everyone. Yes, we have cornfields, but really, we have so much more!

And a few that just missed our list:

  • The soft-serve ice cream machine in the cafeteria. With hot fudge and crushed Oreos to boot!
  • The Fighting Bee mascot. We're the only Fighting Bees in the nation!
  • We have a ghost! If you dare wander the halls of Ambrose Hall at night, you just might run into him.
  • Within walking distance of beautiful Vander Veer Park. Walk, jog, or just gab, it's our version of NYC's Central Park.
