Thinking about USF as your college choice? Do you want to learn more about the university? Do you want to experience campus life before you arrive? Experience living in the residence halls at the University of St. Francis by registering for the the next SAINTS Overnight.

Accommodations for parents will not be provided. Our hotel recommendation for parents who want to stay close while their student is participating in the SAINTS Overnight is Clarion Hotel and Convention Center, 411 S. Larkin Ave., Joliet, IL 60435. The Residence Education staff will provide you with “Joliet Magazine” for dining ideas if you’re looking for options.

If this opportunity won’t work for you because you can’t stay overnight, you can still get a great feel for our campus at the Freshman Campus Visit Day.

Agenda Overview

Saturday: Check-in and welcome, campus introductions, dinner with your host and a late-night activity

Sunday: Breakfast, a wrap-up activity and check-out
