University of Saint Francis Expands to Downtown Fort Wayne

USF Downtown is an exciting new opportunity for learning, leadership and service in the heart of Fort Wayne. The Keith Busse School of Business and Entrepreneurial Leadership has relocated to the Business Center (formerly the Chamber of Commerce building) along with its signature programs including Risk Management and Insurance. Students’ proximity to businesses means internships naturally increase due to the new location.

Also in the Business Center, the renovated Historic Woman’s Club is available for rentals. Next door on Berry Street, the USF Robert Goldstine Performing Arts Center auditorium (formerly the Scottish Rite building) is now complemented by an elegant and fully-renovated ballroom, and its west annex is home to Fort Wayne’s first state-of-the-art Music Technology Center. Students will study and learn in studios designed with input from Sweetwater professionals. The partnership with the music industry leader benefits students who, upon graduation, frequently become Sweetwater employees.

USF Downtown has been officially designated as a legacy project for Indiana’s Bicentennial Celebration. Join the fun. Grand opening activities begin on August 16 at 9:30 a.m. and continue throughout the day.
