Faith, family, and a great education. The faith aspect is very strong there and making life long friends there is very likely.

The professors are great, campus is very pretty, and it is a religious university with a good atmosphere.

  1. The spiritual life on campus is something I wish everyone could experience at least once. The FOPs, Households, availability of the Blessed Sacrament, community, and the Portiuncula are just a few shining examples of what makes learning at Franciscan something that will stick with you forever.
  2. The academics are superb. They're challenging, but you learn so much, and between the spiritual backup, all the lifelong friends you'd pick up here, and the 15:1 student to faculty ratio, there's a lot of support for when things get tough. (e.g., finals week...) In addition, Faith and Reason are melded beautifully throughout the professors' lectures.
  3. Austria. We have a campus there that was once a Carthusian monastery. It's 700 years old, and every semester, I think about 200 students go over there to study abroad. I went last semester, and it was the best experience of my life--and it's not the first time I've traveled to Europe. The professors in Austria are incredible, and you even get to know the families of all of the staff as you become part of a very close-knit community. The University sponsored pilgrimages to Rome/Assisi and to Poland were so well put together...I saw so many things that will stick with me to the end of my days. Getting to learn about the world we live in while experiencing a whole different culture was an experience I'll never forget, and it has helped me grow immensely. I'm sure other schools have great study-abroad programs, but all I know is that there was just something very, very special about this one.

Anyone who is looking to find great fellowship inside of their Catholic faith, yearning to learn more about Catholicism, and seeking great academics will definitely find it at Steubenville.

Franciscan University is the most awakening experience to any student. It is by far the best place to grow in community, faith, love, and studies. At Franciscan University you grow in knowing who you are and what you are meant to do in this life. It becomes a home for you that you may never want to leave and may fall in love with just like I did. Franciscan University also challenges you to become the best version of yourself you can be, helping you grow in virtuous qualities and preparing you for the difficult challenges of the world.

If you are Catholic, this is the place to be. Both students and teachers are truly striving to grow in their faith and to help each other grow as well. The community is outstanding. I continue to meet new people and they continue to amaze me with their friendliness and sincerity. The staff is extremely helpful and understanding

  1. Franciscan's Catholic identity. Franciscan is known for its Catholic values; the school promotes those values, but the students live them. I was shocked when I saw the sacrifices the students here make for the faith, like waking up on a school night for a 3:45 AM holy hour, or ministering to strippers outside of a club in nearby Weirton.
  2. Franciscan's friendly atmosphere. The students at Franciscan look out for each other. We hold doors, clear dishes, make tea and coffee, and fold laundry for each other. My friends are truly my family away from home, always looking out for me.
  3. Franciscan's academics. Franciscan challenges its students to love learning, not just to make the grade. The professors care deeply for their students, and they hope to inspire a desire for knowledge in their students. Though I did not feel challenged in high school even with higher-level classes, I immediately felt challenged academically at Franciscan.
