Spiritual Life

A Catholic university exists for one purpose: to help students become better human beings. Yes, they may know more, be fitter and have more friends when they finish college. But if they are not better people, we have failed. "Where Success Meets Purpose" means taking what you learn here and using it for your success and for the good of the world.
