Neumann College is a private Roman Catholic, coeducational college in the Franciscan tradition, located in Aston, Pennsylvania, USA. It was founded as Our Lady of Angels College with 115 students in 1965 by the Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia. The name was changed from Our Lady of Angels to Neumann College in 1980 in honor of Bishop John Neumann. Neumann seeks to educate a diverse population of students in a scholarly, supportive, and caring environment. In 1997, the campus added three dorm buildings called "Living and Learning Centers" which accommodate more than 500 students. As of fall 2006, 2,969 men and women students were enrolled in Neumann. The undergraduate curriculum is centered on a broad variety of subjects including Accounting, Arts Production and Performance, Athletic Training, Biological Science, Business Administration, Communication and Media Arts, Computer and Information Management, Criminal Justice, Education, English, Environmental Studies and Education, International Business/ International Studies, Liberal Arts, Marketing, Nursing, Political Science, Psychology, Sport Management. Graduate programs are also offered in education, nursing, pastoral care and counseling, physical therapy, sport management, and strategic leadership. Neumann also has an accelerated bachelor's degree program for adults. It is known for its small student to teacher ratio, being 14:1, and its faculty members pride themselves on having a very strong relationship with their students. Neumann College provides academic support services in the form of free tutoring in general education courses for all interested students. Neumann College is currently in the process of becoming a university. According to Neumann's website, on April 10, 2008 an application was submitted to the Pennsylvania Department of Education along with thousands of pages of extensive background material. The PDE will likely schedule a team campus visit during the 2008-09 school year to further evaluate the request for university status.
