As spring semester classes end on April 28, our students are busily wrapping up their work and starting to prepare for final exams and papers. A nice break for them during the weekend before finals will be Fum Follies, a musical comedy created by and performed by members of the faculty and staff -- an opportunity for the whole campus community to come together and share a laugh.
April is also the time when high school seniors are making important enrollment decisions. We hope you will encourage families you know who are considering a recent Franklin & Marshall acceptance.
All the best,
P.S. I look forward to seeing Boston-area parents at the upcoming event featuring President Porterfield on April 21 at the Langham Hotel in Boston.
You are invited to attend one of two upcoming events where you can meet other parents in your area, hear a brief update from Dean of the College Kent Trachte P’04 and receive answers to questions about F&M. Dean Trachte oversees many areas at the College that are of great interest to parents, including Career Services, Athletics, Housing, International Programs, and Student Health Services. Please join us!
Recent student posts have run the gamut, from the best place to get got chocolate to musings on equality and tolerance.
Nothing signifies the end of the academic calendar like the arrival of caps and gowns. Alumni Relations is sponsoring a Senior Salute event in the College Bookstore April 18-20 to honor the occasion. As students purchase their regalia, staff from Admission, Alumni Relations and Career Services will be on hand to let seniors know all the great services and opportunities to stay involved after graduation. Seniors will also have the chance to make a contribution to the Senior Class Gift, and setup a non-F&M email address. Sadly, ‘@fandm.edu’ does not last forever. Giveaways and prizes will be available as well!
Thanks so much to parents who have made a tax-deductible, philanthropic contribution to Franklin & Marshall during this fiscal year (July 1, 2010 – June 30, 2011). Those who have not given this year will receive a mailing at home very soon asking you to consider supporting the Franklin & Marshall Fund. Our secure site can accept your gift to the Franklin & Marshall Fund or you may mail it in using the response form you will receive in the mail. Please with any questions.
