History of SBU
Founded in 1858, St. Bonaventure prepares our students for a good journey through life and for their professional careers by beginning their studies with a strong liberal arts curriculum.
In 1855, Pamphilo da Magliano and three friars came to Western New York at the invitation of John Timon, Bishop of Buffalo, and Utica landowner Nicholas Devereux to establish a Catholic college and seminary. They formed the nucleus of the group of friars who created St. Bonaventure's College. On Oct. 4, 1858, the Feast of St. Francis, the formal dedication of the new school was held on the tract of land donated by Devereux. It was then that the College was named after St. Bonaventure of Bagnoregio, the Patron of Franciscan Studies and Learning.
In 1950, after nearly a century of operation, St. Bonaventure was named a University by the Board of Regents.
