The ceremonies honoring Franklin Honor Society inductees who complete their degrees in Fall 2016 will be held at our Chicago campus.
The Franklin Honor Society was founded in 1956, on the 250th anniversary of Benjamin Franklin’s birth. In the words of its charter, the Society seeks to “emphasize scholarship, character, and ideals of the students of Roosevelt University, and by recognition of students through election to membership, to stimulate the open-minded search for truth, the appreciation of intellectual excellence, and to foster the democratic spirit which were outstanding qualities of Benjamin Franklin.”
Inductees receive a certificate of membership and honor cords to wear with their graduation regalia. Membership in the Franklin Honor Society will be recorded on each student's official transcript.
Induction ceremonies honoring undergraduate student inductees will be held at our Chicago campus on December 16, 2016, in Ganz Hall, 7th Floor, 430 S. Michigan Ave., Chicago, IL 60605.
Congratulations! We look forward to celebrating your impressive academic achievment with you and your loved ones.
