    ALUMNI AWARD RECIPIENTS: 2008-2013

    As a 40-year old insitution with over 5000 graduates, in 1987, Franciscan University established a series of Alumni Awards to identify those of its graduates who faithfully live the Franciscan mission and to recognize their achievements in all walks of life.
