The Fete des Fideles is FranU's annual signature fundraising event. The 2023 Fete des Fideles will be a celebration of our 100th Anniversary and an opportunity to showcase our newest campus addition, St. Francis Hall. This semi-formal event will bring together alumni, faculty, staff, board members, donors and friends of the University for a night of celebration!
What began as a School of Nursing created in 1923 by Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady to serve Louisiana, has grown into a university organized into three academic schools: the School of Arts and Sciences, the School of Health Professions and the School of Nursing. For 100 years, we have formed Franciscan servant leaders of all faiths who are integrated thinkers, highly skilled professionals and faith filled citizens. Join us as we celebrate this huge milestone during centennial year by honoring our past and looking towards the bright future ahead!
