University of St. Francis Time Capsule

Celebrating the Start of Our Second Century in 2021

Submit your photo by August 31!

Throughout the university’s rich history, we recognize that it’s the people who helped establish our legacy. Whether it was the Sisters who founded the institution, the students who spent years pursuing a degree, the faculty and staff who spent decades teaching, coaching, and helping, or the alumni who remain engaged and continue to support us, it has always been about the people.

Be part of this historic event!

The Alumni & Family Relations office invites you to submit a photo to be included in a time capsule that will be buried on the USF Quad! Choose a photo that best represents your legacy at St. Francis – whether hanging out on campus, in class, at a student event, athletics game, study abroad program, with friends, or any other St. Francis activity. Photos will be preserved in the USF archives and printed as 3×5” photos for inclusion in the capsule, which will be opened in 2045, the University of St. Francis’ 125th anniversary.

Save the date for the time capsule burial ceremony!

Alumni Spotlight: Leticia Garcia ’13

Alumni Spotlight: Leticia Garcia ’13

We are thankful for nursing alumna Leticia Garcia, BSN ’13 and the work she is doing in the fight against COVID-19. Here’s what she has to say:

I graduated from USF in May 2013. I work in Labor and Delivery at Silver Cross Hospital, my dream job since I delivered my daughter at Silver Cross 11 years ago.

Due to the COVID-19 situation, patients are only allowed to have one visitor on our unit. As their nurse I have to take the place of their mom, their sister, or their best friend. It’s sad that during such a special moment grandparents and siblings can’t come visit. Our waiting rooms are empty. Everything keeps changing day by day.

Patients and their one visitor are to wear face masks at all times. Imagine that, delivering a baby when it’s already difficult to breath and now with a mask over your face. Nurses, OBs and staff have to wear an N-95 mask, a second mask over it, and a face shield during all deliveries—how impersonal! I just hope I can make my patients’ experiences the safest and most memorable with these circumstances. They are the reason why I became an OB nurse.
