Ways to Experience FranU - A Community Devoted to Helping You Thrive

The best way to experience FranU is to visit our campus. Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady University is a small Catholic college in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Though we’re a tight-knit community, our humble size doesn’t mean we don’t do big things in the broader area.

With a focus on healthcare and health professions, FranU takes a proactive stance on getting students involved in boots-on-the-ground volunteer and service projects within the campus and the greater Baton Rouge community. At FranU, you’ll learn, serve and thrive.
