I love Franklin College because they've given me the opportunities to be successful and excel in my career field. They helped me choose that career field by offering me an internship at a hospital where I realized that I want to pursue being a physician's assistant rather than a doctor. The community of Franklin is one big family, and I've made friendships that will last a lifetime. We're also in a unique spot being in a small town but only 30 minutes from Indianapolis. If I could go back and do it all again, I would choose Franklin every time!
Review Franklin College
Franklin College has been an amazing place for me to do my undergraduate work. Through the liberal arts, I have gained a unique worldly perspective that I believe is harder to get in a non-liberal arts institution or larger institution. However, students can get this at most liberal arts schools, but what makes Franklin unique is the relationships that are created and fostered. Personally, my professors push me to limits that I thought were not possible and through this, I am able to find our more about myself inside and outside of the classroom. They help take students on this journey of college and don't abandon them. When times get scary, tough, exciting, or exhausting, they are still there! In addition to that, the professors help students get internships, jobs, and graduate school interviews. I believe the critical thinking and analysis skills that I have received can be used to solve any problems, which can be beneficial in the job market. I enjoy the small class sizes and student body, but I can understand how this could not be for all.
I have really liked the school so far! As a sophomore, I've joined a sorority, Student Congress, and I am a resident assistant. It is very easy to get involved on campus.

Academics are so big here. The professors know you by name. They also care about you, not just your grades, but what's going on personally.
