Each December, the university offers students the opportunity to participate in a Franciscan Pilgrimage. This is a great opportunity to get a taste of study abroad or to travel to some of the most interesting places in the world.
The Leadership Pilgrimage brings together leaders of various faith traditions from Franciscan colleges and universities across the nation to reflect on and learn from the vision and values of Saints Francis and Clare of Assisi.
Your companions on this journey will be students from SBU and from some of the 22 schools across the country that are members of the Association of Franciscan Colleges and Universities (AFCU).
Sign-up now! Perhaps you can put some money aside over the summer, or your parents might want to make a donation as an early Christmas present.
