The lion's share of the 601 students in Franklin & Marshall College's Class of 2018 arrived on campus this week, eager to kick off a four-year journey with their fellow Diplomats.
Members of the fall athletic teams began trickling in halfway through August, followed by international students on Aug. 26 and first-year domestic students Aug. 28. Representing 21 countries and 31 states, this year's incoming class is among the most ethnically and socio-economically diverse in the history of the College.
On Tuesday, Sept. 2, F&M will welcome these 316 women and 285 men with a 10 a.m. Convocation ceremony in F&M's Alumni Sports & Fitness Center.
