Monday through Friday by appointment.
Interviews should not be intimidating, and at Franklin & Marshall, they aren’t. We prefer to think of interviews as dialogues. One of our admission counselors will sit down with you for about 45 minutes, ask you about your hopes for the college experience and give you an opportunity to ask questions. This is your time to tell us something that may not show up on a college application.
In the spring for juniors and the fall for seniors.
Our open houses are a great way to get to know the campus and the community. Each program includes a welcoming information session, a tour, a panel discussion with students and faculty members, and optional seminars on topics such as the application process, early decision and more. Register Here.
Additional Visit Opportunities
Experience first-hand F&M’s liberal arts curriculum and focus on discussion-based, hands-on learning. Classes in a variety of disciplines are offered to prospective students. Choose a class within your intended major, from a title that fascinates you, or in a new field that ignites your intellectual curiosity. Due to a high number of requests between April 1 - April 23, preference is given to admitted HS seniors.
Meet with a Professor
Have some specific questions about a department or field? Meet with a faculty member to learn more about current research F&M students are spearheading, unique class offerings, peer-reviewed faculty and student publications, departmental honor theses, and how F&M graduates are applying their major.
Lunch with a Student
Have lunch on-campus with an F&M student to experience both our on-campus dining options and day-to-day campus life.
On several Saturdays throughout the year, the admission staff offers campus tours and information sessions. If visiting campus on a weekday is difficult for your family and you, check out our available Saturdays here.
High school seniors wishing to spend more time on campus, can register for an overnight visit and stay with a current student. This is an excellent opportunity to learn more about students’ academic and extra-curricular involvement that animates our campus community. We encourage you to combine overnight visits with other visit opportunities.Overnight visits are subject to limited student host availability on select Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday evenings in October and November. Overnights are one-night only and require minimum of two weeks’ notice. Students will meet their overnight host at the Admission Office at 4:00pm on the scheduled date.
We love to have groups come to campus. Find out more and register your group today.
