LA ROCHE UNIVERSITY
Students come to La Roche University for an
innovative, skills-driven education that prepares them
for success in today’s competitive workforce. Founded
by the Sisters of Divine Providence in 1963, La Roche
educates students to be lifelong learners and achievers
in an increasingly diverse and global society.
With a faculty of award-winning scholars, researchers
and industry-connected professionals, students
receive quality instruction with a real-world approach.
Individualized attention from faculty is one of La
Roche’s best benefits. A 12:1 student-faculty ratio
ensures that students receive personalized attention,
and professors are dedicated to helping students
achieve their academic and career goals.
The unique Study Abroad + Study USA program
allows students to travel within the United States
or abroad as part of their college experience. The
program covers the cost of lodging, travel and most
meals. The University also offers a semester in Rome
program at the same cost of regular tuition.
Situated in Pittsburgh’s North Hills, the La Roche
campus offers students the best of both worlds: a
residential setting, but with big-city amenities. With
downtown Pittsburgh only a 15-minute drive away,
students can reap the benefits of the city’s cultural
and business districts, global corporations, famous
museums, exciting nightlife and professional sports
La Roche students also have the convenience of
employment and entertainment opportunities within
walking distance to campus. Across the street is
McCandless Crossing, a neighborhood district and
town center, featuring everything from a movie
theater, shops and restaurants to a pharmacy, bank
and grocery store. Just a short drive away is the
scenic North Park of Allegheny County, which offers
opportunities for outdoor sports and exercise.
Students find a tight-knit community with
opportunities to meet new people and explore new
interests through more than 30 student clubs and
organizations. Home to the Redhawks, La Roche
also offers 14 NCAA Div. III athletic teams. Men’s
sports include baseball, basketball, cross-country,
golf, lacrosse and soccer. Women’s sports include
basketball, bowling, cross-country, lacrosse, soccer,
softball, tennis and volleyball.
