What Students Are Saying

3.22 Average Rating
It is in NH so remember your winter jacket and boots. The food is excellent but the campus is so small that you probably won't be getting a ton of exercise from walking so make sure you hit their state of the art gym/sports complex to burn off that freshman 15 :-P
Kate from Hopedale, MA
Keep your mind open. At first I hated the school, I still kind of dislike that I'm out of the city, but I joined Wellness Housing so I hope that everything kind of works out.. Nature, wellness..There's gotta be some connection. Think about staying occupied, not about how much you're stuck out in the boonies.
Victoria from Fall River, MA
Make sure to apply for scholarships and have a plan for payment because it is a more expensive school. Also, don't be afraid to talk to people when you go to open houses or step days!
Amber from Ashford, CT
Even thought FPU is a private university, it can be affordable. The school gives out many scholarships based on academics, so work hard! Also, look for private scholarships. The more active you are in school, the better experience you are going to have.
Kendra from Brunswick, ME
Bring a lot of sweaters, buy rain boots and snow gear! Above all else buy a good pair of hiking boots.
