New Students: Launch Your Success

From the moment you pay your deposit until the end of your first year (and even beyond), the Center for Student Success exists solely to help you become your best self. From Launch to HamiltonONE and the Happe Academic Resource Center, our staff will be by your side every step of the way, both challenging and supporting you to empower your own success.

Launch your journey to your best self! 

College is the only time in your life purely devoted to self-discovery. At Franklin College, we know how life-changing these four years are – which is why we created Launch, one of the most distinctive and innovative first year experience programs across the country. Launch is a yearlong program that propels your transition into college and empowers your social, personal and academic growth. While every first-year student will participate in each aspect of Launch, your Launch experience is completely tailored to YOU.
