Launch Lab

Think of Launch Lab as your weekly personal growth hour. In this lab, you’ll gain personal development skills while creating community with people who are also building their best lives. Together you’ll learn how to advocate for yourselves, how to fail resiliently, how to center your body and mind and how to make the most of your strengths.

While most weeks you’ll meet exclusively with your First-Year Seminar class, the entire first-year class will attend Launch Lab together three times during the semester during Community Hours, covering topics like:

  • Transitioning to Franklin College: What to expect as you adjust to college life
  • Taking Care of Yourself: Assessing and caring for your physical and emotional health
  • Valuing Others: Expressing gratitude, fostering inclusivity and creating community
