There is never a dull moment at Franciscan!

Throughout the year Franciscan hosts an extraordinary variety of events—lectures, performances, exhibitions, concerts, readings, film screenings, and more—many of which are student planned and run. The University events calendar keeps track of all daily happenings on and around campus. For a more selective display of offerings, check out the Featured Events calendar, which highlights lectures, performances, and exhibits open to the public. In addition to these educational and cultural opportunities, the community looks forward to a number of important annual rituals.
