Shadow Day and Overnight Visit

Shadow Days and Overnights at Franklin College

High school juniors and seniors should consider participating in a Franklin College Shadow Day. Shadow Days give you the opportunity to be paired with a current Franklin College student, attend classes, spend time in the residence hall, eat in the cafeteria, and get a true sense of what it takes to be successful at Franklin College.

Shadow Days can be scheduled Monday – Thursday during the academic year and students should plan on being on campus from approximately 8:45 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. on that day. We will try our best to find a shadow day host who has a similar academic interest as you, but we cannot promise that you will be able to sit in on a class in your intended area of study.

Admitted Students:  Consider staying overnight in a residence hall with a current Franklin College student. This overnight experience will truly give you a sense of what student life is all about at Franklin College. We encourage you to attend one of our Admitted Student Overnight Programs but you may also request an overnight visit using the form below for another date.

Note: While we cannot offer overnight visits at this time due to COVID-19, we hope to resume these soon. We will not be able to offer Shadow Days or Overnight Visits during the months of December, January, and May.
