New ‘Beginnings’ for Incoming Students

  • Beginnings 2012

Members of Franklin & Marshall’s Class of 2016 arrived on campus May 14 and 16 for Beginnings, the first formal activity for incoming students at the College. The third and final day of the program is Friday, May 18. Students learn more about life at F&M by meeting the faculty don and prefect in their College House, receiving identification cards, taking placement tests, meeting with coaches, and learning about support services and activities at the College. The event also introduces parents of incoming students to the F&M experience.
