Bringing F&M to Alumni and Alumni to F&M

Fulfilling, lifelong relationships drive Franklin & Marshall's ongoing engagement with alumni, parents and friends, whose support has been essential to the College's success for more than two centuries. In partnership with the Office of College Advancement, we assist the College in its efforts to engage alumni in the life of the College, to grow and steward these relationships, to generate financial support for our students, faculty and the outstanding work on which they collaborate, to inspire volunteer service, and to raise and maintain F&M's profile as a leading national liberal arts college. 

Franklin & Marshall Magazine
  • Franklin & Marshall Magazine Summer 2014

Through the quarterly Franklin & Marshall Magazine, we seek to connect our alumni with the life of their College via timely, substantive stories that focus on issues and people of interest to the F&M community. We welcome alumni input. If you have an idea for an alumni- or F&M-focused story, or if you would like to submit a letter to the editor, please contact Magazine Editor Chris Karlesky (

Alumni Relations and Development Communications 

We provide comprehensive, integrated communications services in support of outreach to Franklin & Marshall alumni, parents and friends, and we support the Office of College Advancement through the efforts of our writers and editors as well as our web and multi-media unit, news and publications team, and media relations professionals. We produce designed print pieces, letters, videos, email, web content, news releases and more for events, fundraising efforts, volunteer programming and donor stewardship. 

Thank You, Volunteers
