Overall Rating

Franciscan University of Steubenville is a small-town, private, Catholic liberal arts college. Its appeal extends specifically to a branch of Catholicism known as the "charismatic movement." It cannot be said to be the most academically-rigorous institution, nor a social-scene type college, nor an extremely modern college. If one can overcome the culture-shock that Franciscan can present, this university does has a certain charm.
