Learning, Living, Leading, Growing, Giving Back

Activity in student groups, the arts, civic engagement, and athletics and recreation all enhance the culture of teaching and learning at F&M by allowing students to form new friendships, create meaningful and memorable community experiences, discover important life lessons outside of the classroom, and make the most of their years at F&M.

Opportunities and Activities

As Benjamin Franklin, one of our College's founders, put it so well: "Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn." We invite you to get involved, to open new horizons of learning and service.

Get Involved!

Student Clubs and Organizations

The classroom might provide you with intellectual grounding, but the 115 or so clubs and organizations at F&M offer opportunities for fun and independent exploration of favorite topics. 

Find your passion!

Housing and Dining & Campus Services

Housing and Dining

F&M's College Houses are more than merely places to hang out, sleep and study. They are places to acquire and hone leadership and collaboration skills. And to help fuel all of that activity, Campus Dining provides an innovative and appealing dining services program.
