As soon as I stepped foot on Franciscan University's campus, I knew it was the right place for me.

The campus was alive. Everywhere I went, people seemed animated by their faith, excited about learning, and ready to welcome me.

I knew that here, my friends and classmates would call me on to be a better person, that they would help me grow both intellectually and as a person.

I also knew that I would receive a great education rooted in Catholic values.

I haven't been disappointed.

The classes have been excellent, challenging me to not just repeat back what my professors believe, but to know what I believe and why. I understand the world better. I'm able to articulate my own principles better. And I'm able to see how what is taking place in the world around me--in politics, in the economy, and in the culture--relates to my Catholic faith.

I've also grown in my faith. For me, being Catholic is no longer just about going to Mass once a week and confession twice a year. It's a way of life. It's about living my beliefs consciously and actively in everything I do. That is a perspective I didn't have before coming here.

Coming to Franciscan was the right choice for me. I'm receiving an education that is teaching me more than just facts: It's teaching me how to think and how to live. It was definitely the right fit.
