Why did you choose F&M? I was inspired to apply to Franklin & Marshall because of the opportunity to conduct scientific research with distinguished professors in a close-knit community. F&M will allow me the opportunity to get to know my professors and conduct research alongside them. From my summer research internships, I have grown and I remain committed and passionate about integrating science research into my curriculum. I can tell that F&M will help me grow and learn in an environment where professors and students clearly are excited to be working together.
