  • Underclassmen dorms are small but livable. Upperclassmen dorms are much nicer. The seniors live beach side to Perley Pond, which is really nice and they have parties where everyone is…

    Sodexo food is really bad, and will leave your stomach hurting during your next class. Luckily, upperclassmen dorms are equipped with a full kitchen to make your own meals.

    Franklin Pierce has a contract with Sodexo Catering so there are no food places on campus which would be helpful as the school is very secluded. As well Sodexo does have options but the food all in all isn't that great. There is an ice cream bar so that is a positive.

    Typical college food.I have hear that our school has better food than some others, but it's nothing special. There is also a separate place where students can get food called the Raven's Nest, also referred to by students as The Pub, where you can use your semester dining points to purchase food or you can use cash or a card.

    We have Sodexo dining on campus. They offer many kinds of foods aside from the traditional pizza, salad and other college staples. The dining hall has been newly renovated and the quality in food has continued to increase. Buffalo chicken caesar salad wednesday's are a huge hit!

    The one cafeteria we have is pretty good. Minus the breakfast of scrambled eggs and bacon every morning I like everything else. You have a lot of choices. Salad bar, bread counter, wrap station, pizza, healthy and not so healthy. You can easily avoid the freshmen 15 if you choose wisely. As for out of the cafe there's not so much to do in town in regards to eating. Theres a taco bell and a dunkin donuts, a diner, and a few pizza places but that's really it. If you really want food you can drive 10 minutes to Mcdonalds or 30 minutes too keene where theres Five Guys and Applebees and a lot of places. I like not having to many places cause I spend to much money that way.
