It was the worst decision of my lifeBrightJournalism
It was the worst decision of my life to attend Franklin College. For one loathsome year of my life I was forced to pay for a sup-par education that damn near pushed me over the brink of depression.

The entire school is based on pin headed, narrow minded ideals that will beat down creative students into conforming to a strict preconceived 'plan' of what is expected of you as a GRIZ. That plan is as follows;

1.) Get involved in 100,000 distracting and pointless clubs and activities
2.) Sign up for classes that are absolutely pointless and full of busy work
3.) Sign up for classes that push our narrow-minded message (LA 100 anyone?)
4.) Join a fraternity or sorority so that we can control you even more and dominate your time, but remember we don't haze. (biggest lie ever)

Not to mention that this college's staff is about as helpful and competent as a mongoloid elephant. If you expect your financial 'aid' (which is just going to be a bigass loan)to be complete and ready for you do just go to school, keep dreaming. These people love to drag out the painful 'aid' process as long as possible so that you can't register for classes on time. And good luck affording books if you are dirt poor.

The students that attend are 90% spoiled rich kids and 10% dopey, sorry excuses for life. These jaded shit-heads they accept to this school will break your spirit and all of the goddamn fixtures in the bathroom, ringing up YOUR bill, because they really don't give a fuck, daddy is paying the bills. And pray you don't get an absolute waste of space for a roommate because it will just exacerbate the process.

The dorms are shitty, small, broken, smell foul, are are genuinely depressing.
All anyone does on campus is drink their miserable lives away, don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
Academics are full of busy work and completely pointless to attend.
Athletics are where all of the money is spent, so if you want to be a shit-head football player, you will have your needs met.Bottom line this is a horrible school and I wouldn't suggest it to Adolf Hitler himself. You are better off going an getting a job for the next four years and have something to show for it.

I really enjoyed myBrightPolitical Science
I really enjoyed my time at FC. Even though I didn't quite enjoy the experience in my particular major area of interest, faculty in other departments more than made up for it. I would attend FC every time.

I've only been at Franklin for a year,BrightJournalism
I've only been at Franklin for a year, and I absolutely love it!! The professors are good, except for a select few. As far as a social life goes, you either have to be Greek, or you have to be a drinker to have a really good time. Most of the people here are rich or are athletes, which makes for a semi-snooty atmosphere. I think that Franklin is worth the money.
