Just as we encourage students to become active and involved in their experience with Franklin, we extend the same invitation to parents and family members. There are plenty of ways that can become an active member of the Franklin community.

Your experience at Franklin doesn’t have to stop when you leave! There are a number of ways that you can get involved through a range of volunteer opportunities. These opportunities not only allow volunteers to make friends, support the University's mission and spread Franklin pride, but are also a fun way to give back to Franklin. Give your time today!


Franklin Admissions Ambassador

Sharing your Franklin experience as an Admissions Ambassador is one of the best ways to help prospective students and their families appreciate and understand the value of a Franklin education. There are some ways in which you can help support Franklin’s admissions efforts, with varying levels of time commitment.



The Franklin University Switzerland community extends well beyond graduation. Each year a graduating class leaves the Franklin campus and the beautiful surroundings of the Ticino region. While those students may no longer be here on campus, we hope they remain active and involved in the future of the school. Involvement can be through sharing of their natural gifts or through philanthropic support.


To all incoming students and parents
Warning: Mobility by Train

As a result of the derailment in the Gotthard Base Tunnel on August 10, the passenger trains between Ticino and the German-speaking part of Switzerland will be diverted via the Alpine Panorama Route until further notice. Although this journey is picturesque, it will take 60 minutes longer for national traffic and 60-120 minutes longer for international traffic. Since double-deck trains cannot operate on this route, there could be fewer seats available (30% fewer seats available on the weekends and slightly reduced capacity on weekdays). 

Our community is encouraged to refer to the SBB website for detailed information and plan for longer train journeys when traveling between Ticino and the German-speaking part of Switzerland.
