Our campus was established in 1963 because there were no colleges or universities in the northcentral region of Pennsylvania. In the early years, most of our students came from the local area. Since then, our campus has grown into an inclusive, diverse, and vibrant community.
Our students come from nearly every county in Pennsylvania, more than 20 states – as far away as Alaska and California – and many countries, including China, India, Nepal, Philippines, Nigeria, Russian Federation, Bangladesh, Dominican Republic and Pakistan.
Our 470-acre campus is home to our student-focused learning community, where our faculty challenge our students to discover more than they imagined; nurture them as they develop into happy, healthy, intellectually curious individuals; and equip them to take a lead role in our globally interconnected world.
Our mission, vision and values reflect who we are, what we aspire to be, and what is most important to us.
Our campus is located in Bradford, a welcoming and friendly city of about 10,000 people in northwestern Pennsylvania.
You'll find a lot to do here, particularly if you like outdoor activities. Take just a couple of steps off campus and you can hike, bike, hunt, fish, canoe, ride horses and so much more.
Allegany State Park is a 10-minute drive north and the perfect place for canoeing, biking, swimming and picnicking. We also have the Allegheny National Forest where you can hike, go camping, fishing and swimming.
If you like to ski or snowboard, drive 40 minutes to Holiday Valley in Ellicottville, N.Y., to hit the slopes.
If great shopping, arts and cultural events are your thing Erie is a 90-minute drive west; Buffalo, N.Y., is two hours north; and Pittsburgh is three-and-a-half hours south.
Drive a little farther north and you’ll find Niagara Falls and Toronto, Canada. If you haven’t been there, grab some friends and go for a weekend road trip – you’ll have a great time.
