Recent Alumnus

Party Scene: I take online classes, so not sure on the party scene on campus.

Scholarships: I had no problems with the financial aid process. I applied and was accepted for some financial aid. To receive financial aid at Franklin University, go to the main webpage, then go to Financial Aid, then go to Apply for Financial Aid, follow the steps and instructions, and you will have the financial aid notice after it gets processed.

Athletics: Since there is no athletic department for Franklin University in Shelby, OH, it is difficult to comment on this category.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: Most places to eat in the Mansfield area do not support Franklin University. But as more students apply and are accepted into Franklin University, more area businesses will offer discounts and other deals for Franklin University students. There are many places to eat in the area and they are conveniently located near the buildings. There is plenty of variety and plenty of places to choose from.

Campus Housing: Since I do not live in Columbus and I have all of my classes at a neutral location, I do not live on campus.

Overall Experience: My overall experience at Franklin University has really been great. The professors really know what they are talking about when it comes to class discussions, and the students are very engaging when it comes to class discussions. Most students are active in discussing group assignments and everyone takes accountability for their work. The class sizes are very small, normally 20 students to one professor.

Overall Experience: Although the degree from Franklin University is going to mean something to the student, but the ability to network is not very good. Most of the networking events happen in Columbus, OH, and students who do not live there are unable to attend because of the distance they live from Columbus. With most of the networking events in Columbus, little or no employers come and visit in the Kehoe Center in Shelby where Franklin classes are held.

Academics: Franklin University is very cool in the way they set up each class. Every week is set up to where the students know what to do during the week and what is due before next class. All of the assignments for the class are uploaded to the student's myFranklin account 10 days before their first day of class. Franklin University also has no tests in their curriculum, but there are a lot of papers students need to do in each class.

Off-Campus Housing: Since there are many Franklin University locations around the Great Lakes region, it is difficult to determine what the off-campus housing in Columbus is like. I would determine though that they are very helpful in helping students find housing off-campus.

Party Scene: There are always plenty of places to go providing you know the right people :)

4 College Senior

Local Area: There is always plenty to do in Columbus but not much transportation and limited parking!

3 College Senior

Administration: Franklin is very strict on attendance and their honor code as they place a lot of weight in getting the most of your education.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Columbus has one of the best restaurants in Ohio in my opinion!

College Senior

Athletics: We do not have sports facilities or teams at this school as it is mostly adult learners with families or careers.

1 College Senior

Scholarships: I have been to a few schools now trying to find the best one, academically Franklin has been the most useful and well taught. However I had such a nightmare of financial aid and once it was received it was revoked at the end of the quarter. I had to take out a different loan elsewhere to pay for fees for the one and only semester I went there. As I stated Franklin has the best academics however, if you cannot pay for it yourself WATCH OUT their financial aid department is full of amateurs who don't know what they're doing. I had to talk to the head over financial aid to get anyone to even call me back!

4 Recent Alumnus

Administration: The school is very strict when it comes to attendance, because it is very important for all students to be in every class.

3 Recent Alumnus

Local Area: The town is a nice town. There are plenty of attractions and activities to do around town. There always is an activity happening every week. Most everyone around town are proud and supportive of college students.

2 Recent Alumnus

Party Scene: To my knowledge, there is no parties on and around campus. The party scene, I believe, has a negative impact on students, especially when alcohol and cigarettes are involved.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Quality: Student life on campus it great, the environment is very comforting.
