We've got a great location and lots to do here at Saint Joseph's

We're close to everything ... city, lakes, ocean, and mountains. Saint Joseph's campus setting on Sebago Lake is magnificent, with sweeping views of the lake and the White Mountains. Located at the gateway of the Lakes Region near hiking trails and ski areas, Saint Joseph's also has its own waterfront, trails, ropes course, and farm on 350 acres. You'd never know Boston is just two hours away.

Portland Area

dockPortland, Maine's largest city, is a favorite destination if you want a complete change of pace. With cobblestoned streets and red-brick storefronts that reflect its New England heritage, the Old Port district is renowned for its waterfront, museums, clubs, theater, galleries and fine restaurants. If you love shopping, L.L Bean, outlet stores in Freeport and the Maine Mall are close by.

Saint Joseph's is 30 minutes from Portland, an hour north of Portsmouth, N.H., two hours north of Boston and 5 1/2 hours north of New York City.

(Portland was recently voted America's most livable city by Forbes.)
