This school has wonderful professors who care about their students and the grades they achieve. In many cases, professors will meet with you outside of class and become an active part of your education. There are thousands of clubs and activities to join, as many students like myself decide to do. You will receive a lot of homework, but it is only to better your mind on the lessons learned in class that day.

    Franklin & Marshall is the quintessential small liberal arts college, nestled among the picturesque Amish country of Lancaster, PA while retaining close proximity to the city of Lancaster. Within brick buildings lie impressive archives of knowledge, motivated students, and professors who are genuinely passionate about teaching undergraduates. This school has something for anyone, be they students of the humanities, natural sciences, business/economics, or arts, and it especially has much to offer to students who have no clue what they want to do with their life other than receive a well-rounded liberal arts education.

    Lovely students that made me feel welcomed. Beautiful campus! I left feeling as if Franklin and Marshall College could be called my new home for the next four years.

    If you had to define the words Liberal Arts by showing a college, this would be it. There is the opportunity to do everything and anything here, and there is the opportunity to do it well. I would recommend it to people who are invested in their own education.

    Franklin & Marshall is an amazing college that offers students the opportunity to explore whatever they could possibly want. If F&M doesn't offer the major you want, you can just make it yourself. And we have houses, like Hogwarts, which is pretty sweet.

    I have enjoyed my first year at F&M tremendously. From the small close-knit campus to the highly accessible and extremely helpful professors, F&M has it all. There's a great sense of community on campus and thousands of opportunities waiting to be taken.

    F&M is a good school. The workload is a lot, but manageable if you time manage. The classes and professors here are awesome, and the students here are warm and accepting for the most part.

    F&M has a small but beautiful campus. Downtown Lancaster could be a bit more exciting, but the less-than-exciting social scene aside from drinking is made up for in academia. It's a love-hate relationship that changes constantly.

    Franklin & Marshall is about the liberal arts experience. You are not there to become a doctor, or a lawyer or a business professional; you are there to learn, to create, and to explore. This school emphasizes that this is the ONE CHANCE in your life where you will have all of these opportunities available to you so easily, so take advantage of it!
