Franklin University is the best university I’ve attended thus far! The staff give personal attention to you for your success, and the amount of resources available to you are more diverse than I’ve ever seen. Not to mention I’m just an online student. I can’t imagine what they do for there on-campus students. Thanks, Franklin University staff!

My time at Franklin has granted me the opportunity to see a different point of view. On several occasions, I thought I was more informed and walked away with brand new respect for the subject matter. I would recommend the school to people because of affordability and access. Online classes, in my opinion, provide a decent amount of flexibility to work a full-time job, have a personal life and manage a family.

Choosing to return to school, after such a long layoff (about 9 years), was a tough transition. The classes have challenged and have pushed me to open my mind to different perspectives. I have had great interactions with my peers and my professors.

I am very appreciative of the opportunity that I have been given. I have been able to apply a lot of the knowledge and skill at my job and further look to utilizing as I continue on my career journey. The takeaway from my experience, have an open mind, learn to communicate and never stop working on yourself.
I love that as a non-traditional student this university offers many class options that allow my to achieve my degree while taking care of my baby and running my household. They recognize my achievements and support me to pursue my goals. They care about my success and offer free tutoring and assistance with learning. I feel that they are providing me with the skills and knowledge necessary to have a successful career. I really like how the courses are set up and designed, for they are easy to navigate and they are set up for students to know exactly what is due and when so they can prepare for weeks ahead. You really can work at your own pace online, as long as you stay up to date on deadlines. I’m very thankful that I chose this university to get my degree because the flexibility and support has made it easier for me to have a successful outcome and better work life balance.
