Students rate SBU above the national average
Our students rate their educational experiences at St. Bonaventure University well above the national average as measured by the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE).
NSSE measures student involvement in key practices associated with learning, persistence and graduation. Each participating school receives scores for first-year students and seniors in five "benchmark" categories:
- level of academic challenge
- active and collaborative learning
- student-faculty interaction
- enriching educational experiences
- supportive campus environment
Colleges and universities use NSSE to figure out how and where they can improve the undergraduate experience on their campuses. For college-bound students, NSSE can help them evaluate whether a particular campus offers the kinds of experiences and opportunities that are known to benefit students.
