Great Internship and Networking opportunities for all the students at St. Francis College are definitely big reason why to study here. Our international students traditionally land some of the great internships in companies such as KPMG, Bloomberg, Deloitte, American Express, CBS, National Grid, ConEdison, NBC, J.P. Morgan, and many others.
Our Alumni Network is built on the success and service and a commitment to making the world more equitable and more hospitable. Our alumni certainly are the pride of our institutions and they are always ready to help generations to come.
A smaller student population makes our facilities very welcoming and heart-warming. Students are known by name in every space they enter which is a very unique thing that we at St. Francis College take big pride in.
Besides the classrooms and administrative offices, SFC has two gyms (basketball and volleyball) that are accessible for regular students. On top of that, there is a swimming pool on our campus as well as a weightlifting room that students could use.
The best thing is the fact that the actual campus is one big building that covers the whole block and has 8 floors. Thus students do not have to walk long distances between the classes since they are only 2-3 minutes away from basically every office or classroom at St. Francis College. Our campus location is less than 20 minutes away from all the prominent tourist locations such as Wall Street, Times Square and Central Park, hence, we love to say that New York City is our campus.
There are many great career prospects for international students graduating from St. Francis College, including careers in accounting/CPA, nursing, law, business (investment banking, finance), marketing, media and communications and many others!
