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.
