Bradford and Beyond

  • Bradford Sign

  • Our campus is located in Bradford, a welcoming and friendly town of about 11,000 people in northwestern Pennsylvania. You'll find a lot to do here, particularly if you like doing things outdoors.

    Take just a couple of steps off  campus and you can hike, bike, hunt, fish, canoe, ride horses, etc. Or take part in events happening downtown or elsewhere in town.

    Beyond Bradford, you'll find:

    • excellent skiing and snowboarding at Holiday Valley Ski Resort in Ellicottville, N.Y., a 45-minute drive to the north

    • canoeing, biking, picnicking and swimming in Allegany State Park in New York, just 10 minutes to the north

    • hiking, camping, fishing and swimming  in the Allegheny National Forest, just a few minutes south of campus

    • a helpful Allegheny National Forest Visitors bureau

    • arts and cultural events along with prime shopping in Erie,  PA (a 90-minute drive west); Buffalo, NY, (90 minutes north); and Pittsburgh (3 1/2 hours to the south)
