            I got a great education at F&M and particularly liked the strength of the geology department (my major), which was on par with that of a much larger schools and research universities. I also felt that the small size of the school and high level of accessibility of most of the professors greatly enhanced the learning experience. While the geology curriculum was top-notch, I also obtained the classic liberal arts education, was exposed to a wide range of academic subject matter and, perhaps, most importantly, learned hot to "think", i.e. the skill of critical analysis. I also liked Lancaster and the surrounding area (primarily countryside and farmland) very much and found in it a certain peacefulness and rural beauty. However, many of my friends and fellow student would probably not agree with that view point and felt that their college experience in Lancaster, in the social realm, lacked the kind of "excitement" one might find going to school in say Miami or Boston or NY. Didn't bother me- I was here to learn, but still managed to have plenty of fun. Would highly recommend F&M to anyone.

            Actually, I abhor the term ROI associated with education. Franklin & Marshall remains a key foundation to what and who I a today . . . would do it again. A graduate from the last century studying Anthropology, Theater and Religious Studies, I still recommend my alma mater, and even as African-American female. A day never goes by that the way I think, interact, and communicate is not impacted from full education at Franklin & Marshall. From Admissions Counselor to Loan Office to my current position in career services as a Program Director at a large research-1 university, my knowledge, growth and development, in the classroom and outside, have benefited me, the organization, the clients, and now, a generation of students. I deliver what I most valued at F & M was the one-to-one relationships with faculty, administrators, and staff. I was pleasantly surprised when I unofficially returned to campus for my 30th reunion to see the campus environment, energy, and commitment remained the same. I stole, along with my former classmates and forever friends, Anna and Doug, into the Green Room Theater, the place I was given the chance, to be heard, seen and grow as a 1st semester first year student by late, great Hugh Evans. Anna and I although were a bit sadden by the retired use of the stage we spent many hours in and on, but were moved to see Hugh, along with Ed Brubaker, and Gordon Wickstrom,the triumvirate, was honored beautiful glass engraved plaque in the new the Performing Arts Center. More could be said but enough has been typed in a space aim for a 140 characters or less. I will blame it on, rather thank my F & M education for that. I work for the TERPs, but proud to be F & M, Diplomat

            A true liberal arts college, F&M gave me the broad based business learning environment that I could later build upon, while always keeping an open and critical mind. As I look back its the outstanding campus facilities, the teaching excellence and the enormous academic and experience diversity at F&M that stands out in my mind: accounting with Prof Glazer, psychology, french, the swim team, astronomy, marketing, economics with Prof Whitesell, working in the kitchen and at the foreign studies department, 2 years abroad and coming back, working at the infirmary, organizational theory with Prof Kasperson and ... all the parties of course!
