Pictorial: Quincy University

By Travis on April 29, 2009


If you haven’t taken the time to walk the campus of QU I highly recommend it. There’s alot to see and the landscaping and varioius pieces of art are a visual treat.

Here’s a bit of history of QU per their website:

The history and heritage of Quincy University flow from the story of St. Francis and the first friars, St. Clare and her first sisters, and the early Franciscan movement eight centuries ago in Italy. Their call to follow in the footsteps of Jesus Christ marked their movement as truly universal, endearing them for all time to people of good will. Their respect and love for all of creation and for every living creature, especially the poor and powerless, remain vital eight hundred years later, in harmony with contemporary commitments to safeguarding justice, peace, and the integrity of creation. Their Franciscan vision channels the power of wisdom in service to others. This vision inspired Franciscan friars from Germany arriving as missionaries to Illinois in 1858.

Here’s a few pics, but don’t take my word for it, check it out yourself.
