What Students Are Saying

4.05 Average Rating
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.
Ellen from Earlysville, VA
The campus is integrated into the local community without losing the collegiate feel, which opens up local employment and service opportunities. The classes are small and discussion-based and will not leave you wanting. Franklin and Marshall is small, liberal arts college that does not disappoint.
