“Dr. David Denz is probably one of the smartest guys I have ever met and has such a great grasp on the material. He can present very complex information in a way that’s easily understood. His intelligence, along with his sense of humor and genuineness, made his classes very enjoyable.”

“I learned that different disciplines of knowledge cannot be compartmentalized, but must be seen as various ways to work toward the truth. Taking classes in other disciplines gave us the opportunity to explore the richness and beauty of our faith. This holistic approach will be a big help to me in the future.” One of Wilson’s favorite memories is when the rosary was led at the fountain by the on-campus Knights of Columbus Council 14684 Our Lady Seat of Wisdom. “To see so many students out on a cold and windy night, praying and offering their lives to God, was so powerful and moving.”

Sean Wilson came to Marian University to attend the Bishop Simon Bruté College Seminary to pursue his dream of becoming a priest. Wilson says he thoroughly enjoyed his years at Marian University and thrived in the environment. He feels his collegiate experience taught him to analyze situations and think critically—two skills taught by liberal arts colleges that are vital in any vocation or career. Wilson says the theology and philosophy professors at Marian University are exceptional.

Wilson graduated in 2011 and is currently a first-year theology student for the Archdiocese of Cincinnati and is studying at Mount St. Mary’s Seminary. He hopes to be ordained as a priest in May of 2016.
