The school is a great place to receive an well-rounded liberal arts education that is extremely faith/reason-based. The professors are very available for students and small class sizes help students from going under the radar and not actually learning. Personally I didn’t find the academics to be very rigorous, though I have learned very, very much and my love for school and academia would not have been possible without Franciscan. I also had the opportunity to do NCAA sports at the university. Many people support the student-athletes though there really isn’t any support at all from students outside of those who are already involved in a sport. It has its flaws like any school, but it’s professors are unmatched.
Franciscan is a great place to really live out your Catholic faith while receiving an education centered around that. Everyone is very kind, other students and even professors care about you personally and going to them with questions about your spiritual life is pretty special. It is truly an amazing experience that a professor could teach us biology, for example, and outside of class also give us pointers on how to go deeper in prayer in grow in a relationship with God.
