Counselors

Every day, F&M students are finding new ways to build on their knowledge and create value within their communities. And they come here prepared to do so thanks in large part to you, our counselor colleagues.

The Value of an F&M Education 

The tremendous success of F&M graduates demonstrates the tangible value of an F&M degree when compared to national outcomes. Within six months after graduation, 95% of F&M’s Class of 2022 were either employed or furthering their education. This is notably higher than the national average, which is typically in the mid-80% range.
