Especially through mission work. The mission trips we took to Honduras, to bring water to rural, poverty-stricken areas that didn’t have it. Those were life changing.

Mikey Brauer (’09) witnessed the impact of Catholic Education through the students and faculty who live out their faith at the Cliff and beyond. Which is why he came to Briar Cliff non-Catholic, but with the support of his now wife Mollie, he left Catholic.

Participating in Antioch retreats, the RCIA program and the Honduras Mission Trip allowed Mikey to dive deeper into his faith.

“Especially through mission work. The mission trips we took to Honduras, to bring water to rural, poverty-stricken areas that didn’t have it. Those were life changing.”

His (2nd) favorite thing about Briar Cliff is the community, the first, of course, being his wife Mollie.

“The smile or ‘hi’ you get from every random person you meet on campus. Stealing lunch trays with your friends to go sledding. A professor who calls you when you accidentally oversleep your final,” Mikey says. “There’s a support system and network that will open up opportunities for your career – and help you take advantage of those opportunities when they come.”
