I was asked to give a testimony at this past summer’s Defending the Faith Conference on the way that Franciscan University has helped me grow in my faith and as a person. While preparing for this talk, I thought I’d like to share with you the same. Because this school certainly has changed my life!
This summer there are four exciting research projects being conducted at Franciscan University! Students have the opportunity to work with professors one-on-one to conduct scientific research in the fields of biology, chemistry, and biopsychology. I am one of these fortunate students staying in Steubenville this summer to work in the lab.
Classes, labs and research are most definitely back up and have been in full swing for a few weeks now! Right now, I am synthesizing the “core” of the molecule I am studying. What you see in that picture, although not too clearly, is me taking some water and adding it to the synthesized core (yellow, in my left hand).
Dr. Michael Barber had a not-so-typical college experience.
As a practicing Catholic from the cradle, he made the unique decision to attend a prominent non-Catholic Christian university over a nearby Catholic one. Why would he do a thing like that?
