What is your overall opinion of this school?

Franklin College in Franklin, Indiana is an adequate liberal arts institution that provides students with a plethora of job and academic opportunities. The school is closed-knit and preaches diversity and the meaning of family. Relationships with teachers and various staff are easy to make and are they extremely supportive and motivated to help the students rise to their best potential. Although food and facilities are a bit old-fashioned and unappealing the quality of the staff and students are unbeatable. I am proud to be a GRIZ!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Franklin college is a wonderful campus where you can receive a very diverse meaning of the environment around you. Everyone for the most part is friendly and being a small campus the professors truly care. I personally have had an amazing experience attending Franklin College and would suggest the school to any athlete who is looking for a small college.

I love the school. Beautiful campus. I transferred there this past year and it's changed me for the better! I was a sophomore and took the chance to transfer from a community college to a private four-year university, and it has been hands down one of the best decisions I have ever made. i lived on campus in a dorm for the first time, joined a sorority, and met a lot of amazing people!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

For as much as this place liked to emphasize that their college was “different” from all the others; its interview process is really just the same as everybody else. Rather lacking and disappointing. First I was invited for the interview and they did not offer any compensation. I took two days of work, drove a 6-7 hr round trip, stayed in a hotel for two nights plus the cost of gas and food. I was then scheduled for a 4 hr interview for the position of graphic and web designer. Interview started with director of marketing, director of admissions, then panel interview. During the interview person after person kept stating how special Franklin was compared to other big schools. After the interview did not hear anything back, they ended up hiring from within. Seems like a complete waste of time. Be wary that you might need to foot the bill, also they do not have a lot of clarity regarding what they are looking for in an ideal candidate, HR had no sense whatsoever of where they were the hiring process timeline. If you have other offers on the table, take them before you wait on Franklin. High possibility you could be left hanging. Lastly there was a lot of emphasis on “close knit community” which can be a double edged sword. So then it behooves me to say that nepotism may be an issue you encounter when applying for any position at franklin as an “outsider.”

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Franklin College is located in a small suburb thirty minutes south of Indianapolis. This location gives it the best of both worlds. Campus is small and welcoming. A student can cross from one end of the campus to the other end in less than ten minutes. There are frequent events to attend while also supporting a rigorous academic environment. My favorite dorm was one that had specific rules to ensure a quiet studying environment. Some of my friends were able to secure on-campus apartments that allowed a more independent experience and they really enjoyed it. Yet campus is also close enough to downtown to enjoy the amenities a city offers. Downtown Indianapolis has a few theatres, professional sports events, restaurants, museums, and a zoo. Franklin College offered many opportunities for social, academic, and professional development. There are plenty of sports teams and Greek life is present and active without being overwhelming to someone who wasn’t involved, like me. I participated in the theatre program, which gave me ample opportunities to participate in all faucets of theatre. I acted, directed, designed, and stage managed main stage and student productions consistently and constantly through out my undergraduate experience. A requirement for graduation is an internship. I was able to work with a theatre company in Stratford, Ontario that better prepared me for my professional theatre work in Chicago, IL. The professors at Franklin work extremely hard to support and push their students. Even as a freshman, classes were no more than twenty and by my senior year, classes were frequently five or six students. These ratios allowed to professors to really get to know students and encourage their strengths and support their weaknesses. Being able to go to office hours and get guidance specifically for me was incredibly important in developing my writing, researching, and critical thinking skills. This close relationship also meant I could approach professors about pursuing new opportunities. My senior year, I directed a new play that was completely student written and produced, which had never been done before. At a larger campus, this experience would not have been possible and it was by far one of the most important and formative experience of my undergraduate studies. Franklin College does have its negatives. The school is very expensive. Tuition and room and board are incredibly expensive, even with financial aid. For a campus without access to public transportation, it’s obscene that students must pay for parking. The administration and counselors aren’t trained to help students deal with mental help issues. I’ve had many friends treated poorly by adults that don’t seem to understand how to help students with serious mental health issues. Our group of friends had to do several things that young adults aren’t equipped to do just to keep our friends safe and alive. Overall, I would rate this school four out of 5 stars. I had a generally good experience and feel like I learned a lot of important skills for my career and life.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Franklin college is a small private school in a good location. It is a community atmosphere at all times. The classes are small so the professors get a 1 on 1 relationship with each student and they care about the students' success. I do not like the cost because, its a lot of money but also they aren't using the money for the right projects. Some of our resources, such as the library, are very outdated.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Franklin is a school based on the community. Wherever you go, there is always someone there with a smile and ready to be of assistance. Even when there are disagreements, as students, we we work them out maturely. In addition, the size of campus emphasizes the feel of home so the students are relaxed, especially during exam season. I love how faculty and peers look out for others within the community.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Franklin college is by far my favorite college. From welcome week to football games and greek life there is always something to enjoy at Franklin, and with 1,000 students and a community setting, it feels like home. Everyone should come to visit the campus and see what being a grizzly is like.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the school! The teachers are all for you and they are very accessible. There are many activities to do around campus, but not always very fun. They are working to improve the social aspect of the school. I love the small class sizes. The food is not fantastic but it is doable for about the first semester.
