“Something was telling me to go to Franklin. I can’t imagine being anywhere else. I’ve grown in ways I never thought possible, and I know if I had gone to a big school, it never would have been the same.”
“I do a lot of critical thinking in my job. I have to know what questions to ask and how to solve problems. I learned how to do that at Franklin.”
“I pretty much just knew after my first visit. It felt like home. Everyone was so welcoming, everyone wanted to know about me and was really interested in me.”
"My biggest class was 25. That means I always have access to my professors. I like having relationships with my professors, and knowing that if I have questions, I can find answers."
