Enrollment also on rise; school prepares for largest freshman class since 2007

Franklin College beat its fundraising goal this year, while also accepting the largest incoming freshman class in years.

In order to achieve both, the college has worked to show students how they’ll get the best education in Franklin and convince donors that backing the school’s liberal arts education is a good investment, college officials said.

More than 2,200 donors made contributions ranging from $5 to $20,000 to the college’s Franklin Fund, which is used to provide scholarships to new and enrolled students. The college raised about $658,000 this year, topping the goal of $625,000.
