FranU celebrates the class of 2019! We want to highlight a few of our recent graduates who excelled during their time here at FranU.
Jonathan - Physician Assistant
Before attending FranU, Jonathan was a high school science teacher with a Bachelor's degree in psychology. He became interested in the medical field and chose to attend FranU because the flexible class schedule allowed him to continue to work as well as be a husband and father. Jonathan said he liked the values promoted at FranU, and that while he attended, he felt very involved and connected. After graduation, Jonathan will be working full time as a certified PA.
Alicia - Radiologic Technology
Alicia is a mother and a wife. She has always had a desire to help people and knew that joining the medical field would give her the opportunity to do this. Additionally, she found the "the challenge of diagnostic x-ray captivating." While attending FranU, Alicia was not only prepared for her future career, but she formed a deep bond with her classmates, instructors, and advisors who made her feel "overwhelmed by all the love and support that was extended to [her]." After graduation, Alicia will be working full time as a Rad Tech in Baton Rouge and eventually plans to go back to school to get her bachelor's degree.
Amanda - Biology, Human Medicine
Amanda knew that she wanted to be in the medical field, and so she came to FranU excited to begin her education. She was very involved on campus and in student organizations and encourages incoming students to do the same. Her favorite things about attending FranU were the small class sizes and the wonderful professors. After graduation, she plans to continue her medical education by attending Physician Assistant school.
With support from the Louisiana State Board of Regents and Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center, FranU is proud to announce the 2019 FMOL Sisters Graduate Scholarship recipients.
Named for our founders—the Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady—these scholarships were awarded to exemplary graduate students to help offset their educational expenses.
