Okay, so a friend suggested i ask a group of people what they think…
First off, i want to say, im asking for opinions and prayers.
Second off, Thank you in advance.
Okay, ill give a little backstory first: I am a senior in highschool, and i am taking my classes at the nearby community college(still working on my diploma, but just taking high leveled classes) And I have been doing my applying for colleges and stuff, and I live in the florida area, and recently got accepted to 1/5 colleges applied to.
I have applied to
Franciscan University of Steubenville (Ohio)
Our Lady of Holy Cross (New Orleans)
Ave Maria (Naples, FL)
University of Florida (i dotn even kno why i applied, i dont like this school)
Spring Hill (Mobile, AL)
I got accepted to Franciscan university, and it was the one i applied to long after the others (considering applying means finishing it totally)
I was praying about it, and more and more the franciscan lifestyle, and school has appealed to me. Not to mention, i was babtized in St Francis church in my city, and my confirmation saint was one who is instrumental in the oncomming of the Franciscan Order.
And that made me think about the other colleges and how they might fit into my life like FUS has, like maybe things supplying my interest in those schools, and didnt find any as abundant as the things ive thought about FUS (franciscan).
I was wondering if any of you could give me opinions on any of these schools, and maybe give me an opinion on how i should further discerm it, and pray for me as well. Because school is not cheap, especially catholic schools. And i come frmo a low-income family (not really low, but we can barely pay bills because my parents choose to have a nice house, hopefully theyll sacrafice it for my schooling) and i am just hoping the Lord will provide for me as he has provided for my friends that go to that college (who are also money-deficit-disordered )
Its not really much of a big stress in my life, as i know the lord will deliver me where he wants me to as long as i trust in him, and follow what i believe to be his calling… but still its times like these that God leads me to so that i may learn, becasue i cannot learn on my own, i have to venture out and see other people, if not then i better have God speaking to me through bushes or something
(if anyone wants to further question my faith, and stuff so they can help me out i guess, ill be more than happy to answer)
May the Grace of God be with you always
