Franklin’s Orientation program is an important opportunity for new students to make friends and begin their time at Franklin. The program includes informational, cultural, and social sessions that we hope will help students and their families get a solid start as members of the Franklin family. Participants will meet the administration, faculty, staff, and students, tour the campus and the surrounding area, and share their first meals with new friends and classmates. Orientation provides a memorable introduction to one's student experience and the exciting, multicultural Franklin community.
Tutte Le Strade
Tutte Le Strade is a program that occurs during the first half of the fall semester at Franklin. The events aim to integrate students into their experiences as Franklin students, Lugano, and student life on campus. Some of the events include an annual talk about Swiss history and what makes it unique, visits to nearby towns, and academic workshops coordinated by the Writing and Learning Center.
