Salesian Quote of the Day

Fr. Louis Brisson
Fr. Louis Brisson

“Quite frequently, families consider religion a formality … Faith becomes merely a way of instructing the mind. However, it is not enough to be told rough-and-readily our duties, one needs to fulfill them at the same time. Just as little as a worker is proficient in his profession by by-hearting the theory.”

Fr. Louis Brisson, Chapter 1893

Presenting the New DeSales Branding Concept, 12/5

We invite the entire DeSales community to learn about the new branding concept as designed by our new ad agency 160 over 90.

Thursday, December 5 from 3:00 -4:00 p.m. in the Commonwealth Room of the DUC.

Here’s a little taste of what you’ll see:

At DeSales University, there’s a sense, an atmosphere, a contagious spirit in the air you can actually feel. Combined with our academics, personalized attention and core Salesian values, this creates a community of ethically-minded individuals who leave here not only well-educated, but as people of strong character.

We build individuals with strong character who are ethically-minded and academically strong and subscribe to values that define this University as part of a larger community of people who inspire others.
