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!

I will be a freshman at Franklin College. The staff, coaches and professors have been really helpful with registration, getting classes, financial aid and learning about the school. Everyone is really friendly and I can wait to get started!
I love the friendly environment! I would love to see more diversity than what's there. I love the team spirits! The dedication to preserving the community feeling! I also love the choices for the sports that you choose to do! I am in Cross Country and I love the feeling of being on a team! They never fail to make someone, like me, feel like they are on a team!
