Viterbo University Joins SAGE Scholars Tuition Rewards

By SAGE Scholars — December 16, 2021

Viterbo University, where graduates enjoy a 100% job placement rate, has become the 97th Catholic college and 15th Wisconsin private college to join the SAGE Scholars Tuition Rewards program.

Viterbo’s emphasis on internships and field research opportunities creates the high job placement rate after graduation. Nursing and business are the most popular majors for the 1,500 undergraduates, who enjoy leadership opportunities, generous financial aid and an average class size of 19. Niche ranks Viterbo among the top 20% of best colleges for nursing in the nation. Athletes can join 16 varsity teams that play NAIA Division 2 sports.

The University is home to the D.B. Reinhart Institute for Ethics in Leadership, which inspires people to lead ethical lives while helping to develop leadership abilities. Viterbo’s Fine Arts Center converts from a theatre into a concert hall (535, 748, or 1,123 seats) to accommodate drama, musical comedy, opera, ballet, concerts, lectures, and conferences. The Center contains a dance studio and an art gallery.

Viterbo is located in La Crosse, WI, overlooking the Mississippi River and home to three colleges. The city features over 100 miles of bike paths and lanes and is ranked 2nd among “most exciting small cities in America,” according to Business Insider.

Welcoming to all, Viterbo was founded in 1890 by the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration. The University is the 14th Franciscan college to participate in the SAGE Scholars Enrollment Consortium.

Viterbo University

Viterbo University offers more than 40 academic programs (traditional and online) that prepare students for success in their professional and personal lives. Students choose Viterbo to become leaders — opportunities that go well beyond our excellent classroom experiences.

On our campus, Viterbo students are known by name and build strong connections with faculty, both in and outside of the classroom. Our programs feature internships, study abroad, service, academic support, and field research options that enhance the student experience. This emphasis on real-world experience and personalized connections has resulted in a 100% placement rate for Viterbo students after graduation.

Viterbo knows how important an affordable college degree is to students. That’s why 98% of current undergraduates receive some form of financial assistance. Academic merit scholarships are available, from $10,000 to $16,000 per year, in addition to need-based financial aid and hundreds of other opportunities for generous donor-created scholarships.

Viterbo’s beautiful campus and vibrant community are located in La Crosse — nestled between scenic bluffs and the Mississippi River. Our city has been named the #1 college town in Wisconsin by the American Institute for Economic Research.

Founded by the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration, Viterbo is a Catholic, Franciscan University welcoming to all.
