    About Me

    Hello! My name is Bernardo Gonzalez and I am the Manager of Guest Services at Franciscan University of Steubenville.

    I look forward to welcoming you to campus for a visit, you can schedule a visit here »

    Now a bit about me: 

    I was born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and moved to Steubenville, Ohio, shortly thereafter. Growing up in the Steubenville area gave me a great love for Franciscan University. I grew up in a vibrant Catholic community and attended Catholic School my entire life. Franciscan served as my home away from home. When I wasn’t at school or playing sports, I was on campus as part of the Franciscan Family.

    I graduated from Franciscan with a degree in Marketing. As an undergraduate student on campus I had the privilege of being involved in many of the different opportunities the school offers. I played NCAA soccer as well as intramural sports. I also participated in SENT ministries, Works of Mercy ministries, and went on Missions of Peace trips to Florida, Steubenville, and Belize. The Household system and the Study Abroad Program were most definitely among the highlights of my time at Franciscan. I am a member of AMDG household, and the men of AMDG are true lifelong friends and brothers to me. It has been a blessing in my life to see these relationships grow and develop. During my junior year I studied abroad in Gaming, Austria, and traveled all over Europe. This allowed me to experience the universality of the Church in many different cultures. All these experiences enabled me to become a better student and each one prepared me for the real world.

    After graduation I moved to New York City to work with Legatus, a Catholic organization that works with Catholic CEOs, presidents, and other upper-level business executives. My formation at Franciscan gave me a strong base with which to handle the fast-paced lifestyle of the big city.

    I returned to work at Franciscan University so that I could help forward the mission of this institution. Franciscan strives to educate, to evangelize, and to send forth joyful disciples for lives of worldwide mission. I know the enormous role this mission played in my life and my career and I am excited to share that unique experience with you.
