If cross-country success at Franciscan University of Steubenville has a name, it’s Galligan.
Here at Franciscan University there are so many opportunities for the human person to thrive and grow. The campus faith life is unmatched, with over 600 students going to daily mass, an active household faith life, and over 25 Friars on campus to serve us students. The friendships formed here are amazing relationships with like-minded people that challenge you to grow everyday closer to the Lord.
Happy March! It’ been a fast two months since I last posted. I have been pretty busy, but in different ways than I have been in the past semesters. In the past semesters, I was very busy with school work, clinicals, and just nursing in general. This semester is definitely less intensive than the other nursing semesters, so I have more free time. But the problem is that I get so excited that I have free time, I fill it all immediately with other things because I can! So, I’m busy, but in the best way possible.
With Thanksgiving just around the corner, this semester is moving by quickly. A little over a week ago, the university gave us Thursday and Friday off for our four-day break. I took a few friends from my household home to New Jersey for the weekend. Hurricane Sandy had just hit New Jersey, so people were wondering why I was going home.
Hello again, I’m writing this post refreshed and re-invigorated after a great four day break! With midterms, tennis championships, and household intramural football games absorbing my time, a little four-day getaway was much appreciated.
Welcome October! The sunny chill has swept across campus, along with the beautiful colors of fall. I find myself getting lost in the beauty of the leaves and sunshine; this is bad for my studies because all I want to do is walk around campus or take a drive! This past weekend was Alumni Weekend, so the campus was bustling with activity.
Happy Fall, and welcome back to my blog! After being home all summer, it is a great feeling to be back on campus for my senior year. This summer, I worked as a nursing intern at the Veteran’s Medial Center back home in Nashville, Tennessee.
Steubenville has been confused the past couple weeks with some crazy weather. It went from being 55 and sunny one week to 3 inches of windy snow the next week. This week, the hills are crawling with sledding fanatics, and merely walking around campus can put a student at risk for being nailed by a rogue snowball. Students and staff alike are enjoying the beauty of the winter wonderland.
