Thursdays at 11:30 a.m.

Common Hour enables the entire Franklin & Marshall College community to virtually gather for culturally and academically enriching events at midday each Thursday during the academic year. This opportunity to engage in a campus-wide dialogue originates with Common Hour and then extends beyond the confines of that time into classrooms, house commons, dining halls and beyond. These are vital international, national, local and institutional issues that are relevant to all.

Common Hour in the Spring semester of 2022 will continue as a virtual event broadcast live via Zoom and YouTube on Thursdays from 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.

We record many of our events and make them available to watch during the week following. The latest event is below, but be sure to check out our archive of Common Hour videos going back to 2010.
