Spanning Generations

Dating back to 1854, Franklin & Marshall College's (F&M's) fraternity and sorority communities have a long-standing legacy of developing students holistically across their founding principles that foster leadership, service, scholarship, integrity, and friendship, and fostering lifelong friendships and generational affinities.
