College Connections - Beginnings

Get CONNECTED! Meet upperclass students! Join with others who share your interests!

As a key part of orientation, you will take part in an exciting program called College Connections to help you to branch out and meet other F&M students who are key members of campus organizations. This just might be the beginning of a long-term membership in that club or organization! At the very least you will make some upperclass friends and meet other first-year students with similar interests.

If you are a Fall sport athlete, your college connection will be your team’s practices. Please choose your team as your first choice on the selection form with the drop-down menus. Please do not make any other choices. If you intend to be a varsity athlete for a non-Fall sport team (even if they will have some Fall team activities), please make your five choices of the other clubs and organizations, as those teams DO NOT start their fall activities during orientation.

For the rest, you must choose from this list of participating clubs and organizations that will meet regularly during orientation, and complete the College Connections- Beginnings web submission form.

WFNM All music lovers, WFNM Franklin & Marshall's FM radio station, is calling you!  We are a student run organization that is looking for more aspiring radio DJs who want to have their own radio show.  Do not be scared of broadasting over the radio.  It is much easier than you think and you will have fun doing it.  This FM-Stereo station broadcasts about 2--25 miles.  WFNM is going to be about broadcasting and radio sponsored concerts and events throughout the campus and the city of Lancaster.  
Women's Center/SAVE The F&M Women's Center was established in 1992 to encourage dialogue on Women's and gender issues and to promote equality and respect on campus.  Both women and men serve on the student-run board, and both women and men participate in the Center's popuiar weekly discussions and the other activities it sponsors. SAVE (Sexual Assault and Violence Education) is dedicated to educating women and men about sexual assault, dating and domestic violence
Worker's Advocacy Group The Workers' Rights Group advocates for workers in the F&M Community. The group's goal is have all employees receive a living wage and to end all sub-contracting to companies that do our custodial and food services.  Come join the movement for justice and a living wage on Franklin & Marshall's Campus!
