ALMA MATER HYMN Yareley Gonzalez ’19 BY ROBERT KASE Admissions Counselor We remember our St. Francis, standing strong with dignity, full of glory, grace and honor in our hearts will always be. When we think of our St. Francis, and the stories long been told. We remember thee on bended knee the noble brown and gold.

We are grateful for the donors to the Centennial Campaign who made the Centennial Gateway, the Centennial Quad and the Margaret (Kennedy’69) and William Benoit Commons a reality. These initiatives are an important part of how USF is preparing itself—as well as its students—for its second century of service and leadership.
