Why did you choose F&M? Franklin & Marshall is a supportive and loving community. A few emails from alumni have already given me a glimpse into this. This is precisely the kind of a community that I want to be a part of—one that respects and looks out for everyone on the field. Apart from that, it just gives me positive vibes. Not a very practical reason, but that is what encouraged me to apply. I look forward to being a part of a family that supports, cares, loves and gives me joy.
