This event was proposed by Daniel Peters ’21 and is sponsored by the Harnish Endowment Fund, the Jewish Community Alliance of Lancaster and Chabad at Franklin & Marshall College.
Common Hour enables the entire Franklin & Marshall College community to 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 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. into classrooms, house commons, dining halls and beyond.
