“It’s been amazing to encounter Christ in this way.”
“There was such a sense of joy and community at Franciscan that I never witnessed anywhere else.”
“Not having to pay tuition as an undergraduate makes continuing with a master’s and a PhD much more feasible for me, which is a great blessing.”
Aside from the community, research-intensive science program, and dynamic
campus faith life, Franciscan offered James a chance to explore the idea of personal vocation—a unique calling from God to live out personally and professionally.
Among the benefits he has received from Franciscan is a reawakening of the Catholic faith into which he was baptized. He participated in the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) program and was confirmed at Easter. He also is in formation for the Disciples of the Word Household.
