Dean's Welcome

Picture of Anna Stenport, Dean of Franklin College of Arts and Sciences"Welcome to the Franklin Residential College, the only student-governed residential college at the University of Georgia. Much as Rutherford Hall sits at the heart of the UGA campus on the Myers Quad, the FRC houses a unique community of scholars that exemplify the vibrant intellectual atmosphere that nourishes the UGA learning environment.

The blend of majors from across the Franklin College and students at every stage of campus experience creates a mélange of cultural and social enrichment that awakens student curiosity, creativity, and collaboration. The residential college dynamic instills a sense of belonging and confidence that propels our students to ever-greater heights of classroom achievement. The interdisciplinary nature of today’s disciplines – and tomorrow’s careers – intertwine as students from every corner of campus learn how to work and live together. Whether studying over meals, designing talks or traveling to service-learning projects in Athens or around the state, students interacting in this robust setting discover, shape and solve through the power of connection, unlocking unimagined possibility that advances our society with each year’s cohort.


The community of young scholars in the Franklin Residential College shapes tomorrow's leaders. With a shared sense of true commonwealth, the many disciplines of the liberal arts learning environment meet and redefine our commitment to inclusive excellence at the leading edge of student experience and achievement. Explore the FRC and discover what UGA is really all about."
