Franklin University Announces Gahanna, Ohio Location

Columbus, OH (April 4, 2016)

Franklin University, one of the leading educators of working adults, announces the opening of its newest central Ohio location in Gahanna at Clark Hall.  The new site, located at 380 Granville Street, will offer classes beginning Jan. 4, 2016, through an agreement with the YMCA who is leasing a portion of the building from the Gahanna-Lincoln Board of Education.

Today’s announcement reunites Franklin University with the YMCA, the organization who helped launch the University in 1902. Sponsored by the YMCA as the School of Commerce, Franklin began with a mission to make education, success, and a piece of the "American Dream" possible for everyone.  Franklin has kept this promise for more than 100 years and expanded this hope to students from all walks of life, from all around the world.

The move from the University’s current Westerville location to Gahanna occurred after fall classes finished on Dec. 17.

Academic Advising will be available on site for Franklin University students Mondays through Thursdays from 2-7 p.m
