    I first learned about Franciscan from some people at my parish who studied here. They recommended I check it out, but I wasn’t so sure. When I visited, though, I was blown away by the people I met; they were so genuine and helpful. They were the biggest reason I decided to come to Franciscan.

    Besides the people, I was also excited about Franciscan’s science programs. I was born with a congenital heart defect and had two surgeries growing up to correct the problem. Because of that, for as long as I can remember, I’ve wanted to be a doctor. I knew studying biology and chemistry at Franciscan could prepare me for medical school. I haven’t been disappointed.

    My science professors are amazing. They come from incredible programs— some of the best in the country—and they have so much knowledge and research experience to share with us. But they’re also real Catholics who integrate faith and reason in the classroom and open up their homes and lives to their students. Down the road, I know having such great academic preparation combined with solid ethical formation will make all the difference.

    Looking back on the past three years, it’s amazing how much I’ve grown. I owe a lot of that to my Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam Household brothers, who always push me to be the best man I can be. Probably the best thing about Franciscan is that I know these guys will always be there for me.

     The friendships you form here really do last a lifetime.
