Compassionate Care

Is My Ambrosian Value


Marceline is committed to serving, and we are, too. Our nursing program taught her to provide a higher level of care, and the spark to go a step beyond. We provide a holistic education that empowers you to achieve your goals, so you can support patients in achieving their goals, too. Personal care and compassion. It's what we, and Marceline, provide in health care.

LIBERAL ARTS

Is My Ambrosian Value


All of our College of Business programs are fully accredited and highly respected by business and industry leaders throughout the region, many of which offer internships to our students and hire SAU alumni. In fact, eight months prior to graduation, Alex accepted a full-time position in the Deere & Company Accounting/Financial Development Program. "The Quad Cities is an unbelievable resource for internships and full-time jobs," he says.

Exploration

Is My Ambrosian Value


At SAU, you can learn about the world and experience the world. Sam did. As an undergraduate, he took two short-term study abroad trips, then spent a semester taking classes in London. Sam graduated on time, with three majors, and so many great stories to tell. Yes, you can do it all. We'll help.
