Why St. Bonaventure?

Located at the foothills of the Allegheny Mountains, St. Bonaventure University provides a panoramic backdrop for your event any time of year. The 500-acre campus is nestled between the village of Allegany and the City of Olean in an expansive region of natural beauty known as the Southern Tier. 

You and your guests can arrive at the university by car, bus or commercial airlines, which land in Buffalo, N.Y. and Erie, P.A. While in town, you can always take advantage of the aforementioned Allegheny Mountains, also known as the Enchanted Mountains. The 5.6-mile trail is perfect for runs, hikes or bike rides along the Allegheny River.
