Housed in newly renovated Rutherford Hall, the Franklin Residential College or the “FRC” is UGA’s first residential community. Unique to the FRC, a staff family resides in Rutherford who regularly host students in their home for intellectual, social, and cultural events. Under the guidance of our Faculty Director, 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 nearly 20 years in existence, the FRC has become home to thousands of students, accepting a mix of first-year through senior undergraduates 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. Events planned for 2022-23 include service projects, academic events, social gatherings, and our Fall Break trip to Sapelo Island.
