Saint LeoHistory

Saint Leo University is a private, non-profit, Roman Catholic liberal arts university established in 1889/ 1959 and located in Saint Leo, Florida, 35 miles north of Tampa. The University is associated with the Holy Name Monastery, a Benedictine convent, and Saint Leo Abbey, a Benedictine monastery. The university and the abbey are both named in honor of Pope Leo the Great, who is recognized by Catholics as both a saint and as one of the most outstanding leaders in the history of the Church. The oldest Catholic college in Florida, and the sixth-largest in the United States, Saint Leo University was one of the first American universities to provide distance learning opportunities to students, beginning to educate military men and women in 1973 during the Vietnam era at the height of the anti-war movement. Saint Leo University now operates 17 continuing education centers in seven states, including California, Georgia, Mississippi, South Carolina, Texas, and Virginia, as well as dozens of military base centers, and the University's Center for Online Learning.

Worldwide, Saint Leo University had a total enrollment of 15,932 students in 2012, a majority of which were military-related students. 2,167 students were enrolled at the main Florida campus. Saint Leo University offers over 40 associate, baccalaureate, and master's degree, and certificate programs, and is inaugurating its first doctoral program in 2013. The University utilizes no teaching assistants, but employs 1,380 full-time and adjunct faculty members.

In 2013, Saint Leo announced plans for an education center at a Sykes Enterprises building in Lakeland, Florida.

Florida College is a small, regionally accredited, coeducational Christian college located in the City of Temple Terrace, Florida, eight miles (13 km) northeast of the City of Tampa, Florida. Degree programs include the Bachelor of Science in Biblical Education, the Bachelor of Arts in Biblical Studies, the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, the Bachelor of Arts in Communication, the Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education, the Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies, the Bachelor of Arts in Music, as well as an Associate of Arts degree.

Since its founding as a junior college in 1946, Florida College has drawn its staff, faculty, and the majority of its students from non-institutional churches of Christ. It is also recognized among these churches as an important training center for ministers. The college maintains no official connection with any religious body, however, for doctrinal reasons. This gives it some unique characteristics as religious colleges go – Florida College accepts no direct contributions from any organized religious body, and the members of its board serve as individuals rather than as official representatives of any religious body.

The high emphasis Florida College places on its Christian heritage is expressed in its tradition of daily chapel services. All members of the board of directors and all faculty members are required to be active members in a Church of Christ. All students are required to receive daily classes in biblical topics.
