It’s a great time to be at Slippery Rock University – the region’s premier public residential university. Founded in 1889, the University is home to more than 8,300 students. SRU offers a comprehensive learning experience that purposefully combines academic instruction with hands-on learning opportunities – a winning combination for success. We offer more than 60 undergraduate majors and 20 graduate programs including a doctorate in Physical Therapy. Our Honor’s Program offers academically gifted students an opportunity to study with select faculty in small, highly interactive academic settings both here and abroad. The campus is located in the rolling hills of western Pennsylvania just 50 miles north of Pittsburgh. The University has an accomplished faculty. 92 percent of our full-time tenure and tenure-track instructional faculty members have an earned doctorate or terminal degree. And, because our most common class size is only 20-29 students, faculty members have time to mentor students and provide the personal attention that has become a hallmark of a Slippery Rock University education.
Slippery Rock University is a student-friendly campus of more than 660 acres set among some of the region’s most scenic forests and lakes. We combine the friendliness of a small, liberal arts college with the resources of a comprehensive university, including 17 Division II NCAA sports and more than 100 student organizations, including academic, professional, honorary, service, recreational, special interest, and social organizations and associations. At The Rock, learning extends beyond the classroom. Students are encouraged to participate in a variety of activities from undergraduate research…to community volunteerism…to academic internships…to study abroad…to personal leadership development. More than 2,000 students live on campus in the University’s new suite-style residence halls. Living Learning Communities provide an opportunity for students to live with others who share similar academic, career or personal interests.
