    • Home: California
    • Major: Pre-Nursing

    I’ve always played sports. I wrestled for 10 years, played football for 4. I guess you could say I’ve got an inner warrior. So, when I came to Franciscan, I thought I’d try out for rugby.

    Peter's Story 
    • Hometown: Nokesville, Virginia
    • Major: Accounting
    • Activities: ROTC

    As the fifth in my family to attend Franciscan, I knew a lot about the University, but seeing the variety of people who come from all over the country is amazing. It’s great just to hang out, talk about the faith, and experience life outside yourself, or get involved in activities such as soccer, basketball, and households.

    Meghann's Story 
    • Hometown: Woodbridge, California
    • Major: Nursing

    I chose nursing as a major after several people told me I would be good at it. I remember helping sick animals and going to nursing homes as a Girl Scout. When my grandfather and brother were ill, I saw nursing care as both a vocation and a way to serve. I also think it’s great to be Catholic and pursue a profession that originated with nuns.

    • Hometowns: Denison, Texas
    • Major: Accounting and Finance
    • Activities: Rugby
    • Household: Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam

    Accounting as a major is just right for me because I’m intrigued by anything to do with numbers, economics, money, and business. I’m also a very concrete person, and I couldn’t have found a more concrete major. Besides, most businesses have accounting positions they need to fill.
