From my meeting with some of the professors and sitting in on some classes I feel that the teachers will push you to learn. This school may not be Harvard but that may mean that the teachers care a little more about how smart you are, not just how many zeros are on their paycheck.

    A very open and welcoming environment. Meant for students who are social and can adapt to a small school. Great scenery and plenty of outdoor recreation to do.

    Franklin Pierce is a very small and secluded school. The teachers are nice and the classroom size has a good ratio. Lectures have about 70 students, labs have 14, and normal classes have about 20.

    As much as Franklin Pierce University is talked down, it is actually a very good school to attend. I love it here and have made so many friends and connections with the faculty, they make me feel at home. My only concern is how expensive it is to attend school here.

    A school where an education matters however, I can prove this to be untrue do the sudden drop of six majors and the inability for students, mainly freshman and sophmores, to get into the required classes for their majors. The campus is beautiful and the professors are wonderful. The school listens to needs and wants of students when it comes to the campus itself however, not the academic way.

    Franklin Pierce University is a great place for student athletes. Currently, the business division and health sciences are the most funded and most popular majors. It has provided me with many great opportunities and resources to be successful after graduation.

    If you are a student that is looking for a small school with easy access to the rest of campus other than your dorm, FPU is great for you. If you are looking for an easy one on one time with your professor this is the best place to be. There are many positives about this school that make it so diverse from the others such as UMASS or UCONN not just the size.

    Franklin Pierce is spacious campus with a beautiful view of pearly pond. The food is pretty good if you choose the right things and the staff are mostly friendly. One of my favorite things about this place is the fact that freshmen can park on campus, and that there's not to many people.

    Franklin Pierce University welcomes students with open arms and makes you feel at home. The professors and staff are always willing to help. Professors understand that I am a mother of three, and when needed they welcome my children into the classroom.
