You will visit various learning and social spaces throughout our campus. Tours last approximately 1 hour. * Please note: campus tours are not offered on Thursdays at 11 a.m. during the Academic Year in recognition of Common Hour. Visiting families are welcome to attend Common Hour.
INTERVIEWS are offered on-campus Monday through Friday between June 1 of the junior year and January 15 of the senior year, except on select holidays. In March and April of the junior year, on-campus interviews are available on select Mondays and Fridays. Interviews are recommended (but not required) as part of the application process. It is a great way to share your unique story and for us to learn about your many interests, strengths and accomplishments.
INFORMATION SESSIONS (10:15 a.m. & 1:15 p.m.) are held twice daily on weekdays from mid-June through early-September. During the fall term, information sessions are held on Mondays and Fridays through mid-November. During the spring term, sessions are available Monday through Friday from late-March to late-April. Each session lasts approximately 30 minutes and includes an opportunity for questions. The sessions are an introduction to F&M's philosophy, program offerings and most distinctive features.
Class Visits: Experience first-hand F&M’s liberal arts curriculum and focus on discussion-based, hands-on learning. Classes in a variety of disciplines are offered to prospective students. Share your interests and we will do our best to find a class that matches. Due to a high number of requests between mid-March to end of Spring Term, preference is given to admitted high school seniors.
Meet with a Professor: Have some specific questions about a department or field? Meet with a faculty member to learn more about current research F&M students are spearheading, unique class offerings, peer-reviewed faculty and student publications, departmental honor theses, and how F&M graduates are applying their major.
Lunch with a Student: Meet an F&M student and experience both our on-campus dining options and day-to-day campus life.
Saturday Open House: On select Saturdays throughout the academic year, the Franklin & Marshall Admission Office opens to visitors. If visiting campus on a weekday is difficult for your family and you, check out this option.
Students who are actively involved with green efforts on campus conduct Sustainability Tours of campus. These tours are scheduled separately. Schedule online >
Franklin & Marshall welcomes your group of High School students to visit our campus. Please submit a group visit request to our Visit Coordinator, who will reach out to you to verify and confirm your visit itinerary.
