Experience Ancilla Events

Small Size, Big Impact

Holistic Experience

Ancilla College prides itself on offering or students the holistic experience. We focus on not only the mind, but the body and spirit as well. Ancilla is located on a beautiful 1,100 acre campus of farmlands and wetlands and is housed within the convent of our sponsors, The Poor Handmaids of Jesus Christ. Though isolated, the campus offers many opportunities for students to have a one-of-a kind experience.

State of the Art & Relevant Access

Being situated alongside a working cattle and grain farm gives the Agriculture students hands on experience working with livestock and farmlands.

The Nursing department has a full lab sponsored by St. Joseph Regional Medical Center including a Juno patient simulator and a Pyxis MedStation 4000, a high-end medication dispensing and inventory system, both of which very few colleges Ancilla’s size have access to.

Our environmental students will be able to observe prescribed burns and one of the few documented Osprey nests in the state.

Student Success

The small class sizes and personalized attention make sure that our students know they are not a number and are what our students love most about us. Because Ancilla College has a much lower student to faculty ratio, students are able to receive more personal instruction and thereby become more successful. We have free writing and math labs that work hard to help students get through subjects that may be tough. There are also a wide variety of student organizations, clubs, and activities that ensure the students get a well-rounded college experience.

We've Just Got Started - There's so much more!

This is just the beginning!

Ancilla College not only has challenging degree programs, but also nationally ranked athletic teams and an expansive selection of service learning opportunities to broaden the depth of college life. The credits that are gained here can easily transfer to other 4-year institutions making Ancilla College a great place to start. We will do everything we can to make sure the time you spend at Ancilla works to forge the vision of your future.

We believe in  YOU!
