For the more than 1,850 students who form the Saint Vincent community, the $12.5 million Robert S. Carey Student Center serves as a place to catch up with friends, work out, pray and unwind. The center includes a fitness center, swimming pool, lounge, book center, coffee shop, gym, performing arts center, art gallery and student chapel, as well as a nondenominational prayer room.
Just about every day of the academic year, you’ll find good reasons to get out and about on campus. You can join one (or more!) of more than 50 student organizations, or take in one of the lectures, comedians, parties, concerts and lots of events scheduled by the Activities Programming Board.
If you like the active life, Saint Vincent College offers 22 varsity sports and more than a dozen club and intramural sports. Or you can get to know the Laurel Highlands that surround the campus: Paddle a canoe, hike a mountain or go cross-country skiing. You can do all this and more through the College’s Highlanders Outdoor Explorers Program, which takes advantage of the many opportunities for adventure right in our backyard of the Laurel Highlands.
Community service is an important part of life here: About two-thirds of Saint Vincent students volunteer. You might help spruce up campus, mentor inner-city kids or comfort AIDS patients in Brazil. Whatever you do, chances are you’ll be getting more out of it than you give.
