In Brief: Week of Sept. 26, 2016

COLLEGE TO ACCEPT COMMON APP

Applying to Franklin College just got easier.

The college is now accepting the Common Application for admission, in addition to the specific Franklin College paper or online application.

Director of Admissions Jennifer Bostrom said the college started taking the Common Application this month in an effort to gain exposure and make it easier for prospective students to apply to Franklin College.

Instead of filling out a separate application to come to Franklin, prospective students can just add Franklin College to their Common Application account.

“Seniors in high school are busy, and applying to college can take a lot of time,” Bostrom said. “Our hope is that we can eliminate any additional barriers to applying to Franklin.”

Decorating begins Monday. The station will be located in the Student Center Atrium from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
