Thank you for your interest in the new member education process of the Franklin Society. Each fall semester, our fraternity attracts ambitious students with the drive and desire to positively impact the community. We foster relationship-building, and provide a unique support system that will open doors for members throughout their futures.
A very important and often unspoken aspect of being a member of a Society is the sisterhood/brotherhood/siblinghood that is shared. The bonds that are shared between members of Societies are what set us apart from other student organizations. It is more than friendship. It is the understanding that each member has taken a vow to uphold the foundations and values of the organization. This friendship is rooted in care, accountability, and authenticity.
How to Join
Each fall semester, there are a number of opportunities to meet with current society officers and members, to learn more about the individual organizations, and begin the process of selecting and joining. Those interested in joining a society are HIGHLY encouraged to attend all open houses and rush during the fall, as well as the Student Activities Fair the Wednesday after the first day of classes. Bids are given out at the end of fall semester, with New Member Education occurring at the beginning of the spring semester. To be eligible to join a Society, a student must have completed at least one semester at Whittier College and have a 2.5 fall semester and cumulative GPA.
