A Launchpad for Success
F&M is committed to your success even before you step foot on our campus as a first-year student — and that commitment extends well into the years after you graduate. Did you know that 95% of the Class of 2022 were either employed or pursuing further education within 6 months of graduating? That's the value of an F&M education.how we do it »
The Educational Experience
A 9:1 Student-Faculty Ratio
We're committed to a teaching and learning environment where faculty know every student by name, and no voice goes unheard.
18 Students in the Average Class
Our classes are built small so that students and professors can engage in dialogue. It's a hands-on learning model that instills in our students the abilities to articulate ideas and respectfcully debate opposing points of view.
51% Faculty-Student Collaboration Rate
So much of a liberal arts education takes place outside of the classroom — by design. At F&M, 1 out of every 2 students collaborate with professors on research or guided learning by the time they graduate.
200 International Programs
Our students know that the best way to build the skills they need to succeed in an increasingly global community is to go beyond their borders and explore new corners of the world. We offer more than 200 programs in 50 countries for students looking to study abroad.
Historically, 45-50% of Students Study Abroad
It's not uncommon for F&M students to complete a semester and a summer (or two!) studying off campus, honing foreign language skills, conducting research, completing immersive internships, or taking courses that add richness to the F&M curriculum.
Clubs, Activities & Athletics
118 Student Clubs and Organizations
If there is something that moves you, chances are good that you'll find it at F&M. Our entrepreneurial students are in charge of over 100 clubs, organizations and club sports. And if you get to campus and don't find the club you are looking for, you are welcome to create it with the help of F&M and your friends.
