Blue & Gold Days are our largest and most well-attended programs, designed to give high school juniors and seniors a broad overview of Franklin College.

This program enables admitted students to learn, first hand, what it is like to be a Franklin College student. Students will attend classes, sleep in a residence hall, eat in the dining hall, and experience a fun evening on campus with other prospective students.

Ben Franklin Scholars Day

The Ben Franklin Scholars Program is our most prestigious scholarship program for incoming freshmen. Students admitted with a 3.9 GPA or higher and at least a 28 ACT score or a 1320 SAT score (1860 old SAT score) are formally invited to campus to participate in a scholarship interview with our faculty and staff.
