3 College Junior

Majors: There are many majors offered, but both of mine were recently cut. If one is interested in the arts or mathematics I would not reccommend any further search into the unviersity.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Mostly chain, but driving to Keene can get you sit in options or more areas to dine.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: It's basically in the middle of nowhere.

3 College Junior

Facilities: The campus is gorgeous and most everything else is, their lack of care for any art form is a bit disturbing.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: About the same as any other college, I would think.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: whenever something does happen emails are sent out and the numbers for campus safety and others for help are given. The university doesn't like these events to occur.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: Like any college campus dining.

College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I'm not too familiar with this topic, I live on campus only.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: You should get the chance to know anyone and everyone on campus. It's very diverse and each person is interested in a variety of different areas.

College Junior

Greek Life: We don't have these at my campus.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: Some weekends are more lively than others while other times it is completely dead.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: It depends on where you live, but almost anywhere is better than the freshman dorms. Those are alright depending on who else lives in your hallway.

4 College Junior

Diversity: There is a great deal of both diversty and acceptance on my college campus.

Nightlife: Everything happens on-campus as this is rural NH

3 Recent Alumnus

Local Atmosphere: It's rural NH and a car is needed to go everywhere. If you're into the outdoors and athletics this is the place for you.

4 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: I filled out the forms and they gave me what I needed to attend. I'm surprised it went that smoothly!

4 Recent Alumnus

Most students enjoyed their experiences at Franklin Pierce and stated that they would come here again. They enjoyed their classes, professors, and activities, and also spent a great deal of time hanging out with friends and engaging in outdoor activities. Students were thrilled with the educational, internship, and community service opportunities that were provided as well.

The biggest unsatisfactory element of the school for most students was the IC (Individual and Community) requirement. Most students didn't mind the first IC course, but were not thrilled about having to take the following IC courses, regardless of major or concentration, in order to graduate: College Writing 1, College Writing 2, Science 1, Science 2, The Challenge of Business in Society, American Experience, Mathematics, The Twentieth Century, Science of Society, Experiencing the Arts, and Ancient / Medieval. Most students found that being forced to take these courses actually prevented them from taking courses in their major that interested them. A typical student takes forty courses in their college career (5 per semester, 10 per year), and the University has already selected these twelve for them. This only leaves students with 28 courses to choose from in their major and minor fields, which means that every student will have to leave out a course they want to take. In addition, many of the IC classes don't even aid students. For example, paying for a math or science class seems like a waste of money for a mass communications or foreign language major, and College Writing and Ancient and Medieval classes will not be a wise use of money for a math major. That being said, the school forces all students, regardless of major, to pay for all IC classes. Finally, credits earned in IC courses are non-transferrable, so taking these courses will not earn students any credits at other schools.
