    As with every college or university, you will have your nay-sayers about the food topic. In my opinion, and after four years, I have never had a problem finding something to eat and that appeals to me on a certain day. You just have to be creative and you'll definitely enjoy yourself.

    Unlike many other schools, Franklin has a very wide variety of food options every day. The lines include a home style cooking line, a sub sandwich line, a vegetarian line, and some others as well.

    I haven't visited a college that has food as nice as Franklin College or a dining area that is as clean and well taken care of.

    For an outsider food at Franklin College might be great, but for someone that has to eat it at a regular basis it gets old.

    Franklin College dining is better than most! While you have the option to eat in Saga (never call it the Student Center), you can also eat at Jazzman's which is our little cafe/coffee shop then there is also Ben's Den, where you can pick up a quick sandwich or salad on your way to class. Now we also have the option to put dining dollars on our ID cards that can pay for us to eat at local restaurants, which is nice when you want some late night pizza but don't want to charge it to your debit card.

    Good food quality-wise, the dining facilities could be open longer, though (at least the main cafeteria; the small convenient store and cafe are open until midnight or even later).

    Greek life is prominent for the size of the campus. It is not forced upon students, but it provides another way for students to get involved on campus and form lifelong friendships and even potential networking opportunities.

    Greek life is a major thing on Franklin College's campus. With 37 percent of students being involved in Greek life, nearly half the campus is involved with giving back to their community through philanthropy events, creating events for others to attend, and participating in Greek only activities.
