SAU to take part in private college week


DAVENPORT — As one of Iowa’s private colleges and universities offering individualized educational experiences and a low student-faculty ratio, St. Ambrose University invites all high school and transfer students and their families to discover the advantages of a private college education during Iowa Private College Week, Aug. 2-6, sponsored by the Iowa Association of Independent Colleges and Universities. 

Campus tours and information sessions on financial aid will allow prospective students and their families to meet and speak with current students, faculty and staff to learn about affordability, campus life and SAU’s wide array of academic programs. A free lunch will be provided. 

“Iowa’s private colleges and universities offer very individualized educational experiences,” says Meg Halligan, director of admissions. “With a wide variety of quality programs, 22 varsity sports, talented and approachable faculty, financial aid for more than 98 percent of our undergraduate students — and some of the best student housing in the region — it’s a very exciting time to be at St. Ambrose.”

Founded in 1882, St. Ambrose is a coeducational, Roman Catholic liberal arts university with more than 3,800 students. It maintains an 11-to-1 student-faculty ratio while offering more than 75 undergraduate majors, as well as master’s and doctoral programs.
