Blue and 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 and 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, tour campus and enjoy lunch with other prospective students while cheering on the FC Grizzlies during a home football game after the event.
Seniors also have the opportunity to apply to Franklin College during Blue and Gold Day and receive a decision by the end of the program.
