It is not just religious in name. The students, as well as the faculty, are serious about their faith.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

It is important to take the time to figure out what is important to you. This better enables you to find the university that will fit you as an individual and not just as someone who wants to have fun at college but not grow as a person. Morals and ones lifestyle is extremely important in this search because it limits the amount of universities that take such issues seriously.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone not willing to take school and life seriously.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

You must enjoy the atomosphere of the campus. Ask current students questions about living and academics at the college. Make sure it has a broad range of academics to major in incase you switch majors. Don't pay loads of $$$ somewhere you're not sure about. Overall, you should be satisfied with your choice and feel at peace about it.

What's unique about your campus?

It is small and academically challenges you.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Smart, middle high class, spiritual person

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

My advice to parents and students who are looking for the right college and making most of the college experience is to find a school that your child is going to be the most successful and most happy. Making the most of a college experience for future undergraduates would be to get involved into community service, ministries, clubs, and even sports to meet friends. Also, finding a group of moral people who can hold you accountable and to go to church with will help you through all your college experience. Having faith will get you through the toughest parts of college: mentally, physically, spiritually, or emotionally. Finding the right college includes seeing what they have to offer, finding out if the website for the school is really what the school is about or if the college campus is not really what the website declares it is, spending the night to get a feel of college life, seeking their extra-curriculars, talking to students around campus and even professors. It is so important that the student feels comfortable on the campus and can see themselves being successful and making friends at this place, especially if it is out of state.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about Franciscan University is the integration of faith and reason. The entire atmosphere of the campus integrates faith and reason as do the professors. This helps to build character and virtue. The professors teach the material to help build our intellect but also opening our eyes to ethical and moral situations. Franciscan also offers so many activities to get involved into the community that enables us to share our faith and build our moral character by serving others with genunine love. The school also offers ways to do field work.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

Before I had come to the Franciscan University of Steubenville, I wish I would have known to get a credit card to build credit. It is difficult to get loans now days and so I wished I had known to get a credit card to build a little bit of credit for myself. Other than that, I knew what Franciscan had to offer and the kind of atmosphere of the school it was because I had visited and stayed overnight on campus.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

The search for the right college can be strenuous and scary when one is searching for "the right school". To be concise, the largest determining factor in my experience was to realize that the four years a student will spend as an undergraduate are some of the most formitive years in some people's lives. Therefore, a potential student shouldn't worry about finding a school "made for them" so much as they should realize what type of formation they should do. It is possible to go to a good school offering a more than adequate education, and learn nothing but party games and how much beer you can drink. Many people waste their time and money this way. The one who strives for the presence of mind to utilize the education offered to them will be closer to realizing their potential for greatness. This is not to say college is all about books and tests-- a college student may learn more about who they are from their social life than from a class about journalism. The point is this: Choose a college that will challenge you to grow and become more fully who you are meant to be.

What's unique about your campus?

My school provides young people with an education to aid in nurturing their developing faith life and provide opportunities to exercise their faith. It's a Catholic school, but it seeks to fulfill the truth of what a catholic institution should be, providing students with a good education in their field of studies as well as guiding exploration into the metaphysical and spiritual. It's awesome!

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The worst thing about my school is that they have begun to sacrifice fulfilling their mission at the cost of progress in prominence and upsizing their numbers. It's ok to have a slightly less accomodating environment if you're all suffering together because, even though it is unfavorable on the surface, it brings about a bonding among the students.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Physically go to the college while classes are in session, talk to the administrators, but then go to the commons or the caf and just sit and listen. You will get a very good idea about what the college is really about by just listening to the kids that are already students are filling their days with.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

They are tremendously supportive of new students. They have a great program totally focussed on student retention and helping students accomplish what they want.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

I really wish they offered more financal aid. Also, the hosing situation is a bit of a problem after freshman year. We just need more housing.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

1) Don't go for a degree, go to learn. You probably will be alone in this, but it doesn't matter, once you make up your mind to learn, no one can stop you. 2) Decide what you want to learn. If you are unsure, try to learn everything and see what stands out to you. If nothing does, then try to learn everything. 3) Remember, you can learn just as much from a hangover as you can from a textbook or lecture if you want to. 4) Just say no to the word "no".

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Anyone who is liberal, has any other view of the world than the Catholic church, is a member of the LGBT community, thinks that freedom of thought, speech, expression is a good thing, has asthma, or smokes.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would suggest to students and parents looking for a college to make sure they visit the school before hand. Also make an effort to stay over at least on night in on campus housing. Check out the local area as well, it makes a big impact on you experience. To make the most of the college experience I would suggest not jumping into any clubs or sports freshman year, check out various groups and figure out what you want to join, there is plenty of time to commit to groups second semester freshman year and sophomore year.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I knew a good number of people at this school when I came here
