Recently I have become more devoted to growing in body alongside mind and spirit. I have been shooting hoops during open gym, lifting weights in our brand new facilities, playing flag football intramurals and being active all around in my daily routine. This has not only affected my physical well-being but has also given me clarity of mind and a greater drive to be productive and effective throughout the day. Franciscan’s intramural programs and their workout facilities have given me the tools to grow physically alongside my mind and spirit and I am extremely thankful for that.
The business program at Franciscan University pairs practical knowledge and valuable experience with a grounding in Catholic moral principles that prepared me better than I could have hoped for life in the business world. With the help of the program, I landed two internships at Fortune 500 companies, which further enriched the classroom experience by bringing a real-world application into the classroom through projects and discussion. The culminating course of the program, in which I participated in a business scenario simulation, Capsim, brought the learning from the previous 3.5 years into one course and I am still applying the learning from that program today along with the other course materials.
The business program taught me how to think in business, not just what to think.
