4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Franklin University is a great choice for those who needs the flexibility in their schedule for classes. The important thing for me was that they offer the major I had been looking to get into and the staff really know what they are teaching and will not hesitate to help out if you become stuck or overwhelmed. The location of the main campus isn't too far away from my apartment and in the rare occasions that i cannot make it to the downtown location, there are alternate campuses within driving distance. The staff is pretty much hit/miss. There are really good instructors that make time outside of class to answer any questions or address concerns about the course material, then there are the few that really make the college experience, especially for those working 40+ hours a week, a chore. So far I do not regret my decision in choosing Franklin University.

Overall Experience: Franklin University is a unique school in that it prepares everyone for the workforce no matter how old they are. It has flexible scheduling for working adults, so they can either take online or evening classes if they are close to a campus that has Franklin classes. If I could do it all over again, I would choose this university again.

Overall Experience: THe online classed make it easier & affordable for me & my schedule.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I started out going to a community college when I was 18. I was very pleased with my choice because I saved a lot of money and the class schedule was convenient. I also started working full time, between 40 and 50 hours a week on top of being a full time student. I studied very hard and received excellent grades. I loved attending the community college because I could attend school at night while working full time during the day. I worked hard to take and succeed in all of my classes. Within my first year of attending school, I was on track to graduate early. I recently transferred to Franklin University to pursue my bachelor's degree in Financial planning. I love the flexibility of this school and the locations that they offer classes at. However, it is over 4 times more expensive for one class than it was at my community college. I am glad that I chose to go to the community college first because financially that was the best choice for me. However, I do feel like I am not getting the full experience of being in college because other students at both of the schools I have been too are older adults and not many people my own age are in classes with me. Although many people in my classes are older adults, it has been a blessing to be able to learn from their experiences and better prepare myself for my future as a financial planner. One day, I hope to help students in a similar situation to mine choose the best choice for them financially.

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.

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: 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.

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.

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.

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