I honestly can’t
think of anything it wouldn’t be helpful with,” Cate Levri says, reflecting on
her years in Franciscan University of Steubenville’s Honors Program. “My classmates
ended up everywhere, from med school to religious life!”
Cate went on to
receive her master of arts in historical and systematic theology at The Catholic
University of America and is now a doctoral candidate in historical theology.
