The purpose of Common Hour is to enable the entire Franklin & Marshall community to gather for culturally and academically enriching events at midday each Thursday during the academic year. It is an opportunity to engage in a campus-wide dialogue that originates with Common Hour and then extends beyond the confines of 11:30-12:35 into classrooms, house commons, dining halls and beyond. These are vital international, national, local and institutional issues that are relevant to all.
Common Hour Policy
Our Policy on Common Hour has information for the general public and news media about attending and recording Common Hour events.
