Overall Experience: It was easy to find colleges through fairs

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Freshman year dorms were rather small. There was little room for two people to live comfortably. Also housing lottery is a good way to allow students with good grades and credits to choose the housing they prefer. It rewards their hard work with better living opportunities. However in previous years the lottery has seemed disjointed and unorganized.

Athletics: As a member of the Women's soccer team here at Franklin Pierce University I know firsthand about the athletics at school. The athletes make up a large part of the population and every team is close within it and with the other teams. Athletics at Franklin Pierce is a community within a community. Pierce Pride is great on campus. Most home games are heavily attended. I know I look forward to playing at home because I know that my friends as well as a bunch of others will be there supporting us and that makes the game seem so much easier for us.

Overall Experience: Franklin Pierce University is a small college. Therefore it has a very tight-knit campus. Everybody on campus knows everybody else. this makes the experience much more personal and allows greater friendships and relationships to evolve. People are closer on this campus. Also, because it is a smaller school, most classes have small numbers as well. This allows the professors to teach all students equally as well as develop closer relationships to their students. I feel as if I have made more substantial relationships with my professors at Franklin Pierce than I would have if I chose a larger school.

Campus Housing: The rooms are spacious and how close they are to the library, dining hall, etc. makes it very convenient. It does get extremely loud even if I have the windows shut and the doors closed.

Athletics: Athletics are a huge part of everyday life on campus. There isn't a day that passes where something is going on. I have gone to only a couple of games, but from what I have seen the students are very supportive of our teams. When a team does well there is usually some sort of notification that says what happened and who was recognized in the game if there was anyone.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: When I first walked on campus I loved it and immediately felt welcomed. I was still nervous for move in day, but once I started I knew that I wanted to stay at this school and get my bachelor's of science. My first intentions was to transfer after two years, but after awhile I knew that I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.

Athletics: Lots of students go to the games that are on campus. During intermission they do activities to get the fans involved. Everyone that goes has school spirit cheers for our team. The team uniforms are very presentable. The players have good sportsmanship. The teams here are like family. The facilities are nice fields are keep up and in excellent shape the gym is in excellent shape. We have a indoor field facility so players can practice all year around.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are lots of activities to get involved in. This school has great view we are by a mountains so they do trips to the mountain to climb it. I really love that there are events they bring you to such as skiing and Boston Bruins games. Everyone at my school if very friendly its a small number of students so you recognize everyone you see. Its easy to talk to everyone. Professors recognize who you are. It a good environment to feel like home. I would choose this school again if I could do it all over again because its small and I like that. It a comfortable environment with friendly people and they really make you feel like home for people who are far away. Classes are small so its easier to learn.

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.
