Slippery Rock: Helping students build monumental futures since 1889

Slippery Rock University has been helping students build monumental futures since 1889 and we’re great at what we do.
At SRU, we take pride in providing students with a comprehensive learning experience that combines academic instruction with hands-on learning opportunities—a winning combination for success.
Students can choose from more than 150 quality undergraduate and 30 graduate programs and certificates offered through our Colleges of Business, Information and Social Sciences; Education; Health, Environment and Science; Humanities, Fine and Performing Arts and Graduate Studies.
Great teaching starts in the classroom at SRU and extends across campus and around the world. In fact, during a student’s studies at SRU, their classroom is just as likely to be the Roman ruins, or a jungle in Peru, as it is to be a room on campus. One thing is certain though, no matter where students learn, they will study with a faculty member who has a passion for teaching.
Our faculty members’ first priority is teaching and learning. Nowhere is this more evident than in the tremendous opportunities faculty provide for undergraduate students to collaborate with them on high-quality research.
Students are encouraged to participate in a variety of activities from conducting groundbreaking research in professional-grade labs, to interning on the New York Stock Exchange, to developing the ‘chutzpah’ of a young, professional lawyer in our Pre-Law program.
The focus of an SRU education goes beyond just earning a diploma. We develop people capable of making a positive difference in the lives of others. The University challenges graduates to understand the problems of our global society and have confidence in their skills and values to address those problems throughout their life.
At SRU, we recognize that learning takes place wherever you have an opportunity to discuss, think and practice the process of gaining new knowledge or solving a problem.
Our 660-acre campus, located in western Pennsylvania, is dedicated to helping students succeed. At the heart of campus lies our incredible new student center. This 105,000-square-foot facility is home to three floors of exceptional services and amenities, including the first university-based Quaker Steak & Lube franchise in the country, a Starbucks, movie theatre, meeting rooms for campus organizations and lots of space for students to gather, share and learn.
At SRU, students’ futures are built on knowledge that anything is possible. Find your success at SRU. Call 800-929-4778 to schedule a visit or check us out at:
