Franklin & Marshall College is a place where students have the opportunity to interact "mind-on-mind" with world-class professors. F&M has a reputation for academic excellence where each student is treated as an individual with his or her own unique set of interests and talents. It is a great place to receive a highly-individualized education where learning is supported by an emphasis on learning by doing.
If you are the type of student who wants to do the bare minimum to earn a college degree, F&M is not the place for you. It is a place for engaged learners who are willing to take the knowledge learned in the classroom to the next step. F&M students apply what they learn in the classroom to real-world problems through research and independent study. This takes initiative, commitment, and the willingness to work hard.
