About This Campus

We are a welcoming campus that offers our NSE students personal attention. We offer a beautiful island and lovely people who enjoy the cultural exchange with our NSE students. We will provide a college experience with an emphasis on cultural and tropical ambiance in a caring atomsphere. We are "Historically American, Uniquely Caribbean, Globally Interactive". With a population of 50,000, St.Croix encompasses 84 square miles and lies directly in the path of the easterly trade winds. Temperatures range from 75 to 90 degrees. Tropical climate, lush foliage, warm ocean waters, and beautiful beaches aptly describe the assets of the rural island of St.Croix. Prior to 1917, when the United States purchased the islands from Denmark, the islands had been under the flags of seven nations which has resulted in a very rich and diverse heritage influenced by a combination of American, African, Danish, Spanish and French languages and cultures. UVI is a HBCU, founded in 1962.
