International Student Organization Forming!

Interested in spending time with your peers at Franklin?  A new student organization is being formed by international students like you!  The organization seeks to offer a sense of belonging to international students at Franklin University by providing social support through shared experiences and diverse perspectives.

Join us for our first meeting! We will introduce the purpose of the organization, share requirements for running a student organization, and describe the process of electing student officers.

The first meeting will be Tuesday, September 30 from 4pm-5pm in Frasch Hall, room 312.  Hope to see you there!
