    I grew up around Franciscan University. My parents work here. Lots of people from my family went here, so everyone assumes I came here because I had to. But I could have taken scholarships to play soccer or wrestle elsewhere. I had a choice, and I chose Franciscan. I’ve wanted to study here since I was little. I wanted to be a part of a University that could help me grow as a man. And that’s what this place has done.

    My classes have been great, and my professors are so helpful. They’re always available if you need something. I want to start my own business someday, and I’m getting really good practical preparation for that.

    I think what I appreciate most about Franciscan is how much I’ve matured spiritually. Before I came to Franciscan, I didn’t have much of a regular prayer life. I just went to Mass and youth group. But here, with so many great guys around me, both on the soccer team and in my household, pushing me and challenging me, I’ve really grown.

    You’d think that having spent time here since I was a kid that nothing could surprise me about this place. But even growing up here, I didn’t realize how genuinely friendly everyone is on campus. Every student is either your friend or someone who will help you out if you need something.

    It’s an incredible environment to be in, and you really have to experience it to believe it.
