What Students Are Saying

4.10 Average Rating
Franklin College is providing me with an amazing experience. The professors have proven to want to help me be better at what I want to do in my career. I have zero complaints about the college.
Timothy from Camby, IN
Franklin College is a small community. There are always speakers and events to go to on this campus. The relationships between the teachers and students is one that is genuine and caring; you are never just a number at FC.
Jasmine from Indianapolis, IN
Franklin is the perfect school if you are willing to work hard for your classes, be involved in community work, and get a great liberal arts education. The classes are challenging and all the professors (90 % of whom have a Ph. D. or equivalent) always encourage every student to put forth his/her best effort. However, not only academics are emphasized, but athletics and, of course, community and friendships are extremely important.
