Diplomats Forever

We're Proud of Our Amazing Alumni!

The strength of Franklin & Marshall College is rooted in the far-reaching impact of its 29,000-plus alumni, who strive every day to make a positive impact on the world in a wide variety of industries, nonprofits, and government agencies.

To show our tremendous pride in our many distinguished and accomplished Diplomats, we are celebrating our alumni community throughout the 2022-23 academic year by spotlighting them in a variety of ways — on social media, in print, on our website, and through a series of banners adorning the heart of campus.

The theme of this campaign is Diplomats Forever, a simple yet appropriate message that summarizes the lifelong connection between F&M and its alumni, as well as the connections our alumni form with one another — as friends, mentors and cheerleaders committed to seeing each other succeed and thrive.
