Mike Bracelin, Manager of Guest Services


My name is Michael Bracelin and I am the Manager of Guest Services at Franciscan University.

I am originally from Monterey, CA, but attended High School near Portland, OR. After high school I served in the United States Marine Corps from 2003 to 2007, spending most of my time at Camp Pendleton, CA. After the Marines, I attended Portland State University and earned my Bachelor's degree in History. While Attending Portland State, I worked in the Veterans Office at Portland Community College helping veterans transition from service-life to student-life. In 2012, I moved to Ohio in order to pursue my Masters in Theology & Christian Ministry. Shortly thereafter I found a home in the Registrar's Office working in Veterans Affairs again. Eventually in the summer of 2013 I Joined the Admissions team in Guest Services.
