Franklin Team 2015-2016

Welcome to Franklin! Our goal for the year is simple: we want to make your living experience here fantastic. We have an awesome staff this year that is both approachable and friendly so let us know what we can do for you! We encourage you to get to know your RAs, talk with the other RAs and Hall Director, and stop by the Franklin office near the lobby to get to know all of us.
