Are you burdened with debt from Saint Vincent College?
Saint Vincent College is a four-year Benedictine liberal arts college in Latrobe, Pennsylvania. It was founded in 1846 by Boniface Wimmer, a monk from Bavaria, Germany. It was the first Benedictine monastery in the United States. It is operated by the Benedictine monks of Saint Vincent Archabbey.
Student loans in the United States are spiraling out of control, which is great news for former students.

Saint Vincent College and a History of Problems
During Jim Towey’s four-year tenure as president, he stressed a more traditional Catholic identity. Towey attracted two high-profile commencement speakers: U.S. President George W. Bush in 2007 and Mike Tomlin, coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2008. During this same time Towey encountered opposition from some of the faculty. While Towey attributed much of the dissension to his lack of experience in academia and to faculty unaccustomed to rapid change, in 2008 three-quarters of the school’s tenured faculty signed a letter stating that several decisions made by Towey had caused a major crisis at the college. More than two years later, Towey left Saint Vincent College; he was named president of Ave Maria University in July 2011.
In November 2009 Mark Gruber, a Benedictine priest and faculty member who opposed Towey’s reforms, was accused by the college administration of sexual misconduct. Gruber admitted under oath that he created pornographic materials on a college computer and e-mailed the images. On July 2, 2012, Catholic Church officials confirmed that “Gruber has been found guilty of the delicts (canonical crimes) of possession of child pornography; production of materials which gravely injure good morals; abuse of the Sacrament of Confession (but not a violation of the sacramental seal); and defamation of a legitimate superior.” In July 2013 he was relieved of his monastic and priestly duties.
Alcuin Hall renaming
In 2018, Saint Vincent renamed a building on campus in reaction to sexual abuse allegations against an early dean of the Catholic institution. The former Alcuin Hall was renamed as the Student Activity Center. The name changed after the St. Vincent Archabbey released a list on August 16, 2018, of a dozen Benedictines against whom credible allegations of sexual abuse had been made. That list included the Rev. Alcuin Tasch, whom the building was named after when it was completed in 1964.
