In a recent interview, Francisco had this to say about his experiences while studying at Reinhardt University, “I have enjoyed Reinhardt University mainly because it gives every student the opportunity to really get involved in different activities. After being here for four years I can truly say that I will miss many things from my friends and soccer to being able to develop professionally through my classes and several other activities.”
