If you’re interested in visiting campus during the week, we offer individualized visits so you can see what is important to you. While you’re on campus you will meet with an admission counselor to discuss the application and financial aid process and take an hour-long tour to check out campus. If there are certain buildings you’d like to see or you want more information about student life, let your tour guide know! Students can also request to meet with a professor from their intended area of study, a staff member from various departments, and/or a coach. We will do our best to set up these individual appointments for you, but they depend on the availability of each Franklin College staff member.
The Office of Admissions is open nearly every Saturday during the academic year. These Saturday visits include an admissions and financial aid presentation by an admission counselor followed by an hour-long tour of campus. This visit is best for sophomores or juniors who are just beginning their college search.
If you’re a junior or senior who would like the chance to shadow a current Franklin College student for a day or a senior who would like to extend your time on campus to an overnight visit, you have the opportunity to do so! The shadow days and overnight visits give prospective students the chance to experience life as an Franklin student. You will attend your host’s classes, eat in the cafeteria, sleep in the residence hall, and attend anything else your host has scheduled for the day! Overnight visits work best when scheduled Monday – Thursday during the academic year. We only ask that you allow us ten days to set up your overnight.
If you would like to bring a group to campus, please note the following:
- Groups of 100 students or less have the opportunity to tour campus and learn more about the college.
- The college requests one chaperone per class of students.
- Lunch is offered to high school groups through the line in our cafeteria.
We would love to hear from you! If you have any questions, please call our office at (317) 738-8075 or email us.
