You're a disciplined, hardworking, and, most of all, affable member of the UP community- just like your patronus, Fr. John! Overseeing all of Student Affairs, Fr. John has huge responsibility for the quality of life of all students on campus. But, that never stops him from taking the time to chat with any student or staff member.

You're the boss in any situation, but no one could call you distant or aloof. Always calm, collected, and in control, you have a way of making anyone feel at ease, just like your patronus, President Fr. Mark Poorman! Fr. Mark is a busy guy, to be sure, but, somehow, most everyone knows him anyway. He's got a Ph.D. in Ethics, but would never make anyone feel judged. All-in-all, you're lucky to have friends in high places with this spectral protector!

You got: Fr. Mark Ghyselinck, CSC

You are artistic and easy-going, just like your patronus, Fr. Mark! Although Shipstad is known for being a bit crazy, Fr. Mark's calming influence as pastoral resident ensures it's a great place to be. He's the rare combination of professional painter and Catholic Priest, so, you can be sure that your protector will keep you relaxed and surrounded by beauty!

You got: Fr. Charlie Gordon, CSC

You're a bit on the quiet side, but, that's only because, like your patronus, Fr. Charlie Gordon, you've got a lot going on in your brain. You have the ability to use your fierce intellect to bring God's word out of any song, book, or movie. Also, it turns out that you're a great cook! You can find your patronus in the Theology classroom or discussing scripture and film on numerous podcasts.

You got: Fr. Pat Hannon, CSC

You've got, as the Irish say, the gift of gab and a knack for blarney, just like your patronus, Fr. Pat! Fr. Pat is an energetic writer and storyteller, and, a Pilot thru-and-thru, having graduated from UP in the 80s. You might also come from a big (big) family.

You got: Fr. Charlie McCoy, CSC

You're fastidious, intelligent, and keep yourself in good shape, just like your patronus, Fr. Charlie McCoy! Even though he's one of the most disciplined people around UP, he's also one of the kindest and most compassionate - you'd have to be to live in Villa Maria for so long, right? Not only do you have a Math Professor as a spiritual guardian, you have the local Superior of the Holy Cross Community. Whoa!

You're a true polymath- skilled in social situations, a gourmet chef, a brilliant speaker, and hardworking member of the UP community. Fr. Ed offers his many talents to the women of Kenna Hall when he's not in Waldschmidt working for University Relations, but, he'll probably save some of his famous tater tots for you, since he's your patronus!

You're larger-than-life, practical, and know how to give a mean haircut, just like your patronus, Fr. Dan! Fr. Dan is a business professor who graduated from UP before joining Holy Cross and becoming a priest and business professor. As your patronus, he'll take care of your finances and your soul! He also happens to be very, very tall.

Your patronus is a feisty, retired poli sci professor and well-known Vermonter, Fr. Claude! A French, Spanish, and English-speaker, you'll be safe from the forces of authoritarianism in many different parts of the world with Fr. Claude on your side. Also, you'll never want to clarinet music, as he's a virtuoso!

You observe the world around you and have the perfect retort for any situation, just like the witty and mysterious Fr. Jeff. When he's not in the archives, maintaining the institutional memory of UP, he's in Haggerty/Tyson keeping our Juniors and Seniors honest. Perhaps, too, this patronus has some of Gandalf's magic to go with that beard!

You're a constant and reliable force of nature who never forgets a name, just like Fr. Art, your Holy Cross patronus! Fr.
