The environment of the school is wonderful, its such a peaceful place and I've even visited in the winter. Sure it is freezing but the sight of the snow on the trees is beautiful. PLUS They even set up a snowboarding ramp on the front lawn, and they may open up their private ski hill again.Read More
If I could add more thn 5 stars i would! At first i had seconds thought about goint to Franklin Pierce but after giving it a chance i fell in love all over again! What i live by here on campus is that you have to find your path, your niche and you will love being here more than anything in the world! It may be a small school but that's what makes it wonderful; you get to have close relationships with other students, faculty, staff and even local people! I love Frankie P so much!Read More
Franklin Pierce is a GORGEOUS campus. It is very very very tiny so if you are from a big city and love that lifestyle this isn't the place for you. It is in the middle of no where and the closest big city is Keene, NH which isn't really even a city. If you are someone who really enjoys being involved in student activities, FP has a lot of those so you will be able to always stay busy and have fun that way, but if you are looking for a club scene, chances are you won't find one. On the brighter side, FP does do a lot of trips into Boston and Providence, etc. it just means a little extra money to pay since you are so far from them.Read More
