Its the practical foundation of the Franklin Fellowship, a keystone habit upon which we build everything else. No matter what is going on in your life, no matter what changes semester to semester, you can rest easy knowing that you will still get dinner once a week with people who love you.
Growth requires opportunities. The Franklin Fellowship provides frameworks around skills such as goal setting, habits, and giving. It challenges its members to apply these abilities in mornings, nights, and trips beyond Harvard.
Ben Franklin believed in self improvement through introspection. Fast lifestyles leave little room for the luxury of sharing and reflecting. The Franklin Fellowship carves out a time each week where you can safely share, think, and plan new ways to keep moving in the best directions.
The Franklin Fellowship is one of the strongest communities at Harvard. Members are willing to drop anything to support one another in times of need, and in times of celebration. Friendship and adventure frequently craft some of member's favorite memories from Harvard.
