The Lasallian difference is personal. When you become a La Salle student, you join a community that includes teachers, scholars, and mentors who truly care about you—your academic and professional success, your intellectual and spiritual growth, and your potential to make a difference in the world.
La Salle is one of six colleges or universities in the United States founded in the tradition of St. John Baptist de La Salle, the patron saint of teachers and founder of the Christian Brothers. At La Salle, you’ll gain the skills and knowledge you need to succeed after you leave campus, and the values and traditions that will stay with you when you do.

So if people keep telling you that your dream is not possible, don’t believe them.”
