Interesting Facts:
  • In 2022, Saint Joseph's University merged with another institution to bring on programs in the health sciences such as Pharmacy, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy and Physician Assistant Studies. In early 2024 SJU is completing a second merger to bring on a BS in Nursing program for Fall 2024. 
  • The Philadelphia Eagles and Saint Joseph’s University are partners on a multi-year partnership that will designate the school as the Official Higher Education Partner of the Philadelphia Eagles. As part of the new agreement, the Eagles and Saint Joseph’s will establish a student development program in which students will participate in defined internships, associate roles, and game day positions designed to provide valuable experience in many facets of sports marketing. A lecture series, led by members of the Eagles front office, will engage students across various curricula and extend to other members of the University community. The Eagles will assign annual projects, allowing students to engage in strategic initiatives within the organization to help cultivate the skills and experience needed in the sports industry. The partnership will also include a collaboration between the Eagles Autism Foundation and the Kinney Center around experiential learning, neurodiverse employment, and funding opportunities.
  • Saint Joseph's mascot, the Hawk, has been flapping its wings since 1956 as one of the most decorated mascots in college sports. Recognized over the years by ESPN College Basketball Magazine, Sports Illustrated and The Sporting News as a top college mascot, the Hawk represents the University battle cry "The Hawk Will Never Die," by flapping its wings nonstop (even during halftime) throughout every basketball game.
