Forward, Together 

Life at F&M

A Franklin & Marshall education is based on a simple, powerful concept: Together, we create the way forward. 

We explore the frontiers of knowledge, setting new standards of academic excellence. We personalize education, encouraging our students to discover and expand their ambitions. We stand for what matters, fostering a community that values the common good. And we succeed together, giving the world the kinds of citizens it most needs: confident, adaptable problem solvers.
