Housed in Rutherford Hall, the Franklin Residential College, or the “FRC” is UGA’s only live-in, learning community, with a staff or faculty family residing in Rutherford who regularly host students in their home for intellectual, social, and cultural events. The FRC is a student-governed residence, modeled after residential colleges found at many Ivy League institutions to give the feel of a small college within a large university. Over the nearly 20 years in existence, the FRC has become home to thousands of students, accepting a mix of nearly 100 first-year through senior students into the program each year. Students with any major or minor within the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences may apply to join the FRC.
