    I enjoy Franklin College's numerous opportunities to get involved with the community and meet new people on campus. Opportunities I may not have gotten at a bigger school. - Maya McCloud '23

  • Carolina Puga

    My experience at Franklin College has been individualized. Even though I belong to a minority community on campus, my professors and friends have made an effort to understand my heritage and culture, learning about my challenges as a Mexican student in a predominantly white town. That acceptance makes me feel safe and enjoy Franklin College to its fullest. - Carolina Puga Mendoza '22

    Franklin College is a closely-knit community where students get 100% attention from both faculty and staff. It’s small enough to encourage professor-student relationships that will lead to great recommendations and expanded networks.” - Rutendo Nyamadzawo '23

  • Alexis Cheatham

    My education at Franklin College has been great. The psychology and English departments have given me research and presentation opportunities. The professors give each student individual attention to ensure they understand the material and get all their questions answered! The small setting ensures that all students are seen as people, not numbers on an attendance sheet. - Alexis Cheatham '21
