Antonio José Sáenz Heredia University (Creeperian Spanish – Creeperian: Փնիվերսիդադ Անտոնիո Ջոսէ Սըենզ Հերեդիա; Creeperian Spanish – Iberic: Universidad Antonio José Sáenz Heredia; abbreviated as ՓԱՋՍՀ or UAJSH, or sometimes ՓԱՍՀ or UASH [pronounced: /u-aʃ/ (Creeperian Spanish) or /juː-æʃ/ (Lyoan)], formerly known as and sometimes simply referred to as the University of San Romero; Creeperian Spanish – Creeperian: Փնիվերսիդադ դե Սան Րոմերո; Creeperian Spanish – Iberic: Universidad de San Romero, abbreviated as ՓՍՐ or USR) is a private university in San Romero, San Romero, Creeperopolis. The university is considered to be the best and most prestigious in Creeperopolis and one of the best and most prestigious in Sur.
The university was established on 30 March 1622 by the royal decree of King Salvador II, making it one of the oldest active universities in Creeperopolis. The University of San Romero, as it was originally named, was primarily focused on educating clergy for the Creeperian Catholic Church and politicians. The institution was secularized by successive Liberal Prime Ministers, however, following the dissolution of the First Parliament, the university returned to being influenced by the Catholic Church. During the Adolfisto, the university attained its status as the "most prestigious" in Creeperopolis, out preforming other universities such as the University of Jesús Cristo in San Salvador and the House of Martínez–Pelayo University in Tuxtla Martínez.
Politicians of the Second Parliamentary Era attempted to secularize and nationalize the university, but student protests successfully prevented the secularization and nationalization of the university. During the Creeperian Civil War, the university was used as a barracks for soldiers of the Catholic Imperial Restoration Council who held control of the city of San Romero throughout the entire war. The University of San Romero was renamed to the Antonio José Sáenz Heredia University on 4 June 1957 after Antonio Sáenz Heredia, a prominent Creeperian politician and Mayor of San Romero, by the imperial decree of Emperor Romero II.
The university is considered the best in Creeperopolis as it has produced more award winning and acclaimed alumni, faculty, and researchers than any other university in the country. The university has been ranked number one by the Gaceta Creeperiano every year since 1983 in its annual Creeperian University Report. The university's soccer team, the Romerists, is considered one of the best in the country, having won 23 national championships since its establishment in 1910 and it is the only team in the country to have won 5 national titles in 5 consecutive years from 2001 to 2005. The university operates the Sáenz Heredia Chronicle which is regarded as one of the most reliable and credible university independent newspapers in Creeperopolis. As of 2019, the average National University Acceptance Exam (EXACUN) score at the university was 1,168 out of 1,326, the highest average in Creeperopolis.
