Blue & Gold Days are our largest and most well-attended programs, designed to give high school juniors and seniors a broad overview of Franklin College. During our Blue & Gold Days, visitors enjoy the tradition and fun of an autumn Saturday on campus. Students and their parents have the opportunity to meet with faculty, talk with current students and tour campus with other prospective students while cheering on the Franklin College Grizzlies during a home football game after the event.
Seniors also have the opportunity to apply to Franklin College during Blue & Gold Day and receive a decision by the end of the program.
This program enables admitted students to learn, first hand, what it is like to be a Franklin College student. Students will attend classes, sleep in a residence hall, eat in the dining hall, and experience a fun evening on campus with other prospective students.

Our Franklin College Open House is geared towards sophomores and juniors who haven’t visited campus before.
