Family Association

At the University of St. Francis, Families are integral members of the campus community. Whether you’re assisting your child in the college search process or helping a current student navigate their college career, USF strives to provide families with the resources and information they need about tuition and fees, policies, scholarships, campus safety and much more.




The University of St. Francis Family Association exists to promote and enhance opportunities for families of USF students; to communicate, participate, and establish a sense of community with one another and with the students, faculty and staff of the University of St. Francis.


The Family Association began in the 2000 academic year when the university recognized the importance of keeping the families involved with each other, their children and the USF community.

Why Join?

The Family Association gets involved with student events such as Orientation Week, Family Weekend and Homecoming. Benefits include a welcome gift and Saints Connection e-newsletters. Families can send their children goodie baskets during exam week and stay connected with them through participation.


Your time is appreciated as a volunteer when available at the Orientation Families Welcome, Family Weekend and Homecoming. You may also participate in other family events throughout the year such as our Christmas celebration and more.
