My name is Kolbe Young and I graduated from Franciscan, following in my parents footsteps (’94), in 2018 with my Bachelor of Arts in Humanities and Catholic Culture. During my four years here I experienced a rich, holistic formation on a human and cultural dimension as well as spiritual and intellectual. I dove into rigorous studies, joined a household, worked as a Resident Assistant for 3 years, traveled to ten countries, proclaimed the Gospel on several foreign mission trips, and cultivated authentic, lifelong friendships. This place has really made me much of who I am today, facilitating one of the most critical molding periods in my life. I am now honored and very grateful to walk with students as they consider this remarkable University.
