What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall the school can be welcoming, and there are a lot of solid relationships that can be formed while attending this school. If you choose to go outside of your comfort zone, there are opportunities to converse with people of many different backgrounds despite the school being a PWI (Predominantly white institution). Speaking on that as well, the school, unfortunately, doesn't do enough for its students of color, but I guess that's a work in progress. The academic rigor is extremely difficult, time management and surrounding yourself with supportive individuals becomes key to success. The food also isn't great, go ahead and treat yourself off campus, you'll need it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great school for academics and encourages you to be the best student possible by challenging you to exceed expectations. The professors are respected academics in their fields of study, so you know you are getting the best education. The community atmosphere is like a small town, where everyone looks out for each other.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Franklin and Marshall is a private liberal arts school located in Lancaster, PA. Students come all around the world to attend this school. Known for mostly their psychology, pre-med, and business, the school strives to challenge students to their max. The school is also known for their music program and is a huge supporter for the arts. They are also very flexible in catering to the student's needs. Food is also not bad.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

F&M is an excellent school and is advertised as such. The large international student population is a unique aspect of the campus that I don't think receives the recognition that it should. While academically challenging, F&M provides numerous resources to help with every subject and to help students grow. It is a quintessential small size liberal arts school and provides the core aspects of a liberal arts education. The location of Franklin and Marshall provides the perfect location to explore a small city. Lancaster has a deep history and a vibrant and supportive community. F&M takes advantage of the many opportunities that Lancaster provides.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Very good school (academically speaking). The professors are inspiring, interested in the success of their students (by and large). Cost of tuition is far too expensive though. Lancaster is actually quite a vibrant city and it is a shame the college doesn't do more to get students involved at the city level.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The music program here is incredible! The faculty are amazing in that department. A lot of people have problems with admin here, but in music, the faculty are great. The ensembles are of a good size and the people are lovely. The astronomy department faculty are very helpful as well. It is a growing program and there are plenty of research opportunities for majors.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I had a wonderful experience at F&M. The professors are outstanding and accessible any time you need them (or just want to chat about their discipline). There is an intellectual culture on campus, and students are genuinely interested in what they're learning - I had many academic conversations outside of the classroom on all subjects imaginable. The small size makes it easy for students to get involved in lots of different activities and take on leadership roles or research opportunities. I received a generous financial aid package when I attended, and I know the school has done a great deal to increase the amount of need-based aid available, which is excellent. Loved my experience there and would definitely recommend.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Franklin and Marshall College is quiet unique. It has everything you could ask for but it also has things that you wish it would have. It is great in academics and social life for those who know how to balance between the two, however if you chose to lean towards one of the two you will see that it could need an improvement. This improvement however is feasible to do due to the easy access to faculty and staff.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, I believe that the academic rigor, extracurricular opportunity, and party life are ideally what I was looking for during my college search. Students definitely prioritize academics over partying or other social activity at F&M, but students still have plenty of time to attend club meetings, field trips and parties. The nightlife on campus is definitely smaller compared to other schools because of our stricter rules regarding drinking and partying on campus ; every party is registered, and many parties get shut down pretty quickly by both F&M and city police. I value this about F&M because I feel much safer at parties on and off campus, and these rules allow students to value schoolwork. However, some areas of Lancaster city can be a bit crime-ridden, so I would recommend visiting during the day and bringing a friend. The campus is beautiful and I am always within a 10 minute walk from any class, which is very convenient. The college house system as supposed to a typical dormitory system is amazing; I have met almost everyone from my college house, and each house is beautiful on the inside. Also, each house is getting renovated, so new elevators and other amenities are going to be added. In conclusion, I love being a Diplomat, and if you enjoy academics, extracurriculars, and small class sizes, this college is definitely for you!
