Nicholas Olszyk, Chair of the Religious Studies Department: "All I'm seeing now is humility, humility, humility. Everything he did was very symbolic. This is someone who makes it clear from the beginning, 'I'm colloquial. I'm with you. I'm one of the people.' I've been very impressed."
Taylor Medina, '14: "It was just such a joyous occasion. I prayed for the conclave to be able to decide on someone who will be able to lead our Catholic community in a positive way.
