I’m a senior English major with a writing concentration, who’s only a short two hours away from my home in Columbus, Ohio. I started writing for Franciscan’s student newspaper my first semester and now also work with Marketing and Communications as a media assistant. My favorite place on campus is the Stations of the Cross, which is a little known place to find some inspiration. After graduation I hope to work in publishing, where I would love to edit Catholic fiction.

Schmiesing: Born in the Spirit

I grew up number three in a family of seven children. My parents met as students at Franciscan, married, and never left. I’ve always thought of myself as a ‘traditional Catholic”—no hand-raising, speaking in tongues, etc. All that was somewhat foreign, even though, as kids, we saw a great deal of charismatic worship on campus.
