Franciscan Athletics Celebrate Division III

STEUBENVILLE, Ohio — Franciscan University celebrates the accomplishments of its student-athletes this week, taking part in the inaugural NCAA Division III Week developed to acknowledge the campus and community life involvement of student-athletes across Division III.

Franciscan received special permission to celebrate Division III Week this week as opposed to last—April 9-15—due to the University’s already planned Green and Gold week and the approaching sendoff of the rugby team to the NSCRO National Championship.

Each day Franciscan will reveal an accomplishment by its student-athletes under the categories of academics, sportsmanship, peak performances, community service, and the AMCC Presidents Cup. Please visit to find out more about what our student-athletes are doing.
