  • What is your favorite thing about Bellarmine? My favorite thing about Bellarmine is the incredible sense of community. I am continually amazed by the wonderful people I cross paths with everyday here and who touch my life in so many different ways. When I think of the Bellarmine community I am reminded of Thomas Merton’s words, “We do not find the meaning of life by ourselves alone- we find it with another.” I am constantly being inspired, touched, and cultivated by the love and compassion of this community and I am forever grateful to be a part of the Bellarmine family.
