With flexible visit options to choose from, we’re sure you’ll find something that fits your schedule and interests. We’re glad you’re here.

Plan a Personalized Visit

Individual Visit

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 a current student will take you on 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.

Our office hours during the academic year are Monday- Thursday 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Friday 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. During the summer, our office hours are Monday – Friday 8 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Dress for the weather – our tours depart in rain, snow, or sunshine.

We look forward to hosting your group!
