Neumann was an easy choice for Elizabeth Blevin. “My sister came here and when I toured, you could tell it was a close-knit community. I really liked all the Franciscan values and I got really into the faith aspect after I got here,” she said.
A junior elementary education major from Newark, Delaware, Blevin is involved in the campus ministry center, a service leader on trips, and a liturgical leader. “After learning about St. Francis, I felt like I should be giving back more. He helped a lot of people, and I realized it’s important and rewarding to give back,” she said.
“I like how easy it is to get involved here. Since it’s a small community, it makes it easier to develop friendships.” Blevin is also an orientation leader, Neumann Navigator, and a member of Knights for Education and Women of Wisdom, a group of women who get together to talk about anything that’s bothering them or issues they may be having. “Women of Wisdom is a pretty cool little group. It’s a nice way to get together and talk about things,” she said.
