On the eve of the 50th anniversary of the civil rights March on Washington, D.C., Members of Franklin & Marshall College's Class of 2017 were urged at Convocation to immerse themselves in their college experiences and make a difference in the world from their first day on campus.
Full of promise and eager to create new knowledge, they arrive at Franklin & Marshall College from 32 states, Washington, D.C., and 27 countries -- 304 of them are women; 305 are men. They are the Class of 2017, a diverse group that on Tuesday, Aug. 27, will be officially welcomed to the F&M academic community during Convocation.
