Our Biggest FANs

FAN: Franklin & Marshall Admission Network

Volunteer alumni and parents from around the nation serve as ambassadors for the College as part of the Franklin & Marshall Admission Network (FAN), which builds community among past, present and future students and parents of F&M and promotes the benefits of an F&M education to prospective students and their parents. FAN volunteers represent F&M at college fairs, host or attend admission events, build relationships with prospective students in their regions and host welcome events for students who plan to attend F&M. Regional team leaders oversee the efforts of our more than 580 volunteers and help coordinate FAN’s 37 regions across the country.
