The Abridged Guide to the Unabridged F&M Experience 

MORE opportunities, more challenges, more ways to push beyond the expected and the obvious.

More ways to reimagine what a major looks like, more people from more places, and more access to forward-thinking scholars and insightful mentors.

Plus, a world of study-abroad programs, a distinctive College House residential life experience, an array of innovative research opportunities, and an almost limitless range of clubs and activities. More people who understand the power of collaboration, who want to build communities, and who expect more from themselves.

This is the start of Franklin & Marshall College.

We make our own education. We make our own way. We decide what dreams we want to follow—and then we find ways to bring those dreams to life. We're the happiest bunch of workaholics you've ever seen. We believe there is always more to know, more to do, and more to discover.

This is the start of an unabridged, unlimited, constantly expanding life.

This is the start of MORE.
