For a high quality undergraduate liberal arts experience that emphasizes the practical application of what you learn in the classroom, there’s the Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
Students are lifetime members of a College House, which is a hub of academic, extracurricular and social involvement in a residential setting. During their college career, students must govern their houses, develop leadership skills and create the house’s own social and academic programs.
Like the College Houses, student life is active and engaging. Besides their distinct home, students may join one of more than 76 clubs and organizations, with interests ranging from anime to Ultimate Frisbee. The school also offers 10 different Greek life organizations.
Students also play a large role in the development of both the student and local community, as many students participate in community service programs.
Academics at the school include a wide variety of liberal arts and sciences programs, including more than 10 foreign language concentrations.
Admissions require students to submit their official high school transcript and ACT/SAT scores. Students who do not want to submit ACT/SAT scores may submit two graded writing samples from junior and senior year reflecting their academic ability.
Students who file a FAFSA may be eligible to receive financial aid through federal Stafford loans, PLUS loans, work-study programs and need-based institutional grants.
