A Welcome from the President
Welcome to Franklin College, where the liberal arts prepare men and women for significant and exciting careers. Franklin College has an extraordinary history, an exceptional record for graduate school and career placements, a distinguished reputation for community leadership and service as well as a supportive network of more than 9,000 proud alumni. As you explore this Web site, we are confident that you will be excited by what you learn, and eager to call Franklin home.
We take great pride in the Franklin College mission. By integrating the traditions of a liberal arts curriculum with opportunities for professional development, our academic programs prepare students for lives of excellence, leadership and service.
Our beautiful, tree-laden campus provides an environment where intellectual discovery flourishes and self-discovery begins. Franklin students learn from outstanding faculty and staff who are teachers, scholars and leaders in their disciplines. Classes are small. We help students grow inside and outside of the classroom by encouraging respect, honesty, responsibility, faith and the pursuit of lifelong learning. Professors and staff care deeply about their students, often developing friendships and mentoring relationships that last well beyond the undergraduate years.
In addition to serving the diverse needs of our students, we offer many services for our alumni and community neighbors. Franklin College graduates remain connected through the Alumni Association, which provides opportunities for networking, volunteering and socializing. Annual favorites such as Homecoming, the Victory Bell Classic and Grizzly Grand Prix are events that unite our student body, faculty and staff and alumni. We also bring people together through service-learning and leadership programs that take the college into the community and through cultural programs and Division III athletics that bring the community onto the campus.
We hope that you enjoy your virtual tour, but there’s no substitute for actually visiting Franklin College and experiencing firsthand what we have to offer. Whether it’s your first visit or a return to your alma mater, we hope that you’ll feel at home at Franklin College.
Dr. James G. Moseley
President of Franklin College
