Maybe it's the friendly, unpretentious nature of our students, faculty, and staff, or the upbeat spiritual perspective of the Oblates of Saint Francis de Sales, who have shaped the University and its character. Maybe it's because of our great academic programs, the personal atmosphere of our small suburban campus in Pennsylvania's scenic Lehigh Valley, and our supportive learning environment. At any rate, there's a remarkable experience to be found at DeSales University.
