"I am thankful for Father Ryan because it has provided me with a family atmosphere. My family moved to Japan, and I stayed in Nashville to finish my senior year. I am so thankful that I have a community of love and acceptance where I can truly be myself."

Come see how we live this mission during a Campus Tour. Campus tours are available most Mondays and Fridays from 9:30 a.m.-11:00 a.m. and the second Wednesday of each month from 3:00 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.

    These guidelines will help you prepare for a wonderful visit:
    • Tours fill up quickly, so we recommend you Register Early and bring a copy of your confirmation.
    • Don't be late. Remember, all times listed are Central Time.
