Since I arrived here, I’ve grown more confident in myself as a man and as a Catholic.

The people here are obviously great. The students, faculty, and staff—for as different as everyone is—share the common goal of living the Catholic faith, and your friends really hold you accountable.

I’ve always played sports. I wrestled for 10 years, played football for 4. I guess you could say I’ve got an inner warrior. So, when I came to Franciscan, I thought I’d try out for rugby.

Two things attracted me to Franciscan. First, the passionately Catholic atmosphere and community: The people here are trying to be saints, and that’s an incredible thing to be a part of. Second, I knew Franciscan could help me realize my dream of becoming a doctor.

I came to Franciscan because I wanted a school where I would be safe but not comfortable. In other words, I wanted to get an education where I could grow academically and spiritually, where I wouldn’t have to sacrifice one for the other.

As the fifth in my family to attend Franciscan, I knew a lot about the University, but seeing the variety of people who come from all over the country is amazing. It’s great just to hang out, talk about the faith, and experience life outside yourself, or get involved in activities such as soccer, basketball, and households.

I chose nursing as a major after several people told me I would be good at it. I remember helping sick animals and going to nursing homes as a Girl Scout. When my grandfather and brother were ill, I saw nursing care as both a vocation and a way to serve. I also think it’s great to be Catholic and pursue a profession that originated with nuns.

Accounting as a major is just right for me because I’m intrigued by anything to do with numbers, economics, money, and business. I’m also a very concrete person, and I couldn’t have found a more concrete major. Besides, most businesses have accounting positions they need to fill.
As a senior in high school, I knew I wanted four things in college. First, I wanted to go to a top Catholic school, one that was excellent academically but that was also faithful to the Church. Second, I wanted a school that offered me an opportunity to study abroad.
A college that was passionately faithful: Even in high school that was the type of school I wanted to attend.
Before coming to Franciscan I went to another university. But my pro-life views made me less than popular with that school’s professors and administrators.

At Franciscan University, we love bragging about our students. We love it even more when others do our bragging for us.
I first learned about Franciscan University when I attended one of their high school youth conferences.

Dan is passionate about many things: The movies Braveheart and August Rush, snowboarding, soccer, and for some inexplicable reason, argyle sweaters and socks.
As soon as I stepped foot on Franciscan University's campus, I knew it was the right place for me.

Friday night, 20 to 30 college guys, and two local strip clubs. Sounds like a familiar story,. But it's not. At least, not when those 20 to 30 college guys include senior José Silva and his friends from Franciscan University.
I wanted two things out of a college education: I wanted an academic foundation that would help me succeed in this life, and I wanted a spiritual foundation that would help me succeed in the next life.

“I’ve always been teaching someone,” says Nicole. “teaching is in my genes.”
You know how some say that the loneliest people in the world are freshmen in college? Well, those people don't go to Franciscan University.
I came to Franciscan because it was a Catholic university, and passionately Catholic at that.
