A Saint Leo Success Story


With a goal of opening her own business, Dana Dixon decided to go back to school to first build upon her educational foundation. Dana utilized Saint Leo University’s flexible and convenient hybrid education opportunities to combine classes at her local education center and online courses. This allowed Dana to earn her degree while being a full-time professional and full-time mom. 

After graduating from Saint Leo with her Bachelor of Science in Health Care Administration, Dana had the confidence to reach for her goals and start her own company.

One of the top-ranked universities in Florida, Saint Leo is a Catholic, liberal arts school serving learners of all faiths.

We are traditional, but we are cutting edge

Established in 1889 by the Order of Saint Benedict of Florida, the university seeks balanced growth in mind, body and spirit for all members of our community. Saint Leo has grown from a peaceful campus in the rolling hills of Central Florida to an institution of international consequence—ranked one of the best regional universities in the South by U.S. News & World Report.

Our Tampa-area campus remains committed as ever to student-centered liberal arts education, and is strengthened by the global reach of our regionally accredited online programs and Education Centers in seven states across the U.S., including on many military bases.

We are Catholic, but we are for everyone

Our determination to make higher education more accessible to all has made Saint Leo a world leader in redefining the 21st century university. Saint Leo now serves more than 14,000 students from 49 states and 86 countries—ranking us among the five largest Catholic higher education institutions in the United States. Saint Leo is also one of the nation's 10 leading providers of higher education to the U.S. military.

While we are proudly Catholic, we teach students not because they are Catholic, but because we are Catholic. And our faith compels us to imagine and contribute to a more socially just society.
