3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Pretty safe campus. I only heard of 1 sexual assault in my year here.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: We don't have a football team but sports are a big deal here.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: It all depends on where you look. Keene has some great places but thats a forty-five minute drive.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Lots of parties but they aren't all that great. Kinda of sketch honestly.

3 College Freshman

Administration: It all depends on who you have as a CA. Freshman can't get away with anything really.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I got lots of financial aid but the school is really expensive so it didn't make a difference.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: No knowledge on this for I live on campus

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are a few local places but mostly you must go into Keene or Gardner

3 College Freshman

Administration: It all depends on the situation at hand and the campus personal you are dealing with

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: It all depends on the night and where you go.

College Freshman

Scholarships: Personally, I didn't apply for extra financial aid, I received scholarships upon applying.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food isn't completely horrible. It is a hit or miss-some days its good, others there isn't anything appealing.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Each housing level is set up different and would be rated differently, the freshman housing is the lowest ranking of all the options. Every year you move up a class level housing, the better the housing gets.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel safe here but as a freshamn within the first month there were two emails sent out about sexual assault and one girl i know was drugged and the another girl was drugged and raped on campus. The second girl is also not a reliable source because she does like to get attention for things that are very important

3 College Freshman

Athletics: People attend the sporting events, especially the basketball games, and i was a cheerleader which is a club team and we started with 28 girls so the club sports are very popular. Also if you don't make it onto a varsity spot thy have the same sport as a club and people always join those

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are quite a few options so i think it is good

3 College Freshman

Administration: This school is good when it comes to strickness and safety

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: We don't do much on fridays which stinks but saturdays are always good!

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I only got 12,000 but I can't complain because I was a really bad tester in high school so I didn't get the best grade, although I was great in class and did all of my homework my school did a lot of testing. But i do talk to other students who were the same as me but got more money but i don't really understand that. My roommate and me had the same GPA both did activities and got involved throughout high school and have the same financial need and she got much more than I did.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: I personally don't like the food except for occasionally. They also have really bad timing for when they are open. Breakfast should be until 11:30 lunch should be at 12 until 3 and dinner should be open until 8 and 8:30 on weekends. People have class and can't eat all 3 meals of the day because the hours are so bad and for dinner I eat at 6 and I'm hungry by 9:30 -10 because I'm up late doing homework or I don't get to eat because of practice for a sport. I would like be able to have dinner later since I'm paying 5,000 for a meal plan and barely get to use it.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love living at Franklin Pierce University, my roommate is amazing and we got the opportunity to choose each other before coming to school whichI also love. Our room is nice but the actual look of the building are not the best. The food here isn't the best but I guess you can't expect amazing food for a college. Living here is great and I have the best floor with great people on it. I love this school I wish they still had dance and that it had early childhood education and i would be staying here.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: i have heard of people living off campus in apartments they rent with their own money, but the college does not offer dorming off campus, it is up to the students to fend for themselves.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: we dont have much other than a subway, dunks, and a few places in the town over.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: there isnt too much strictness at our school other than with marijuana and alcohol, if they see a large group of kids walking down to lakeview they will occasionally stop them and see if they had driken or if they smell weed they will have rindge cops come on campus to take care of it.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: the music in some lakeviews is good, others have poor quality speakers which takes away from the experience, but when i hang out with my friend in his house its just us and a few friends which makes it much better.

Students Often Come From

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
