New 2014 Fall International Students seeking roommates!

Happy Tuesday, International Franklin Students!  Remember what it was like when you entered the country?  The Office has recently been contacted by several international students who are seeking a roommate or roommates to move in with or find a place together for the 2014 Fall trimester, and forward.
If you would like to help New International students feel welcome in our city, can offer a room for rent, or you are looking for a roommate to find a place with, let us know! Please contact Katelyn Summerford at if you are interested.   Katelyn will reach out to you and discuss the opportunity further.
