We Need Your Help
Our goal is to get the Franklin University Alumni Pin into the hands of as many Franklin graduates as possible, so we need your help. As a Franklin graduate, you are invited to pass your pin along when you encounter a fellow Franklin University graduate who does not already have one. The recipient will in turn pass along the pin during a similar encounter, fostering an increased sense of spirit and community among Franklin graduates.

Replacement Pins
After you have passed your Alumni Pin along to another Franklin University graduate, be sure to request a replacement pin.
