Memories from TRUE BLUE Weekend 2018! 

Over the weekend of Oct. 26-28, more than 2,500 alumni, family and friends came home to Franklin & Marshall College for TRUE BLUE Weekend. Even with the rain, the campus was filled with engergy as we celebrated the inauguration of F&M's 16th president, Barbara K. Altmann, and launched the College’s exciting new comprehensive campaign, Now to Next!
