Overall, this university provides great educational knowledge in which every student(s) need to pursue the career and degree they want. Franklin Pierce University staffs and professors are extremely nice and intelligent so if you ever need assistance, they are there for you.
A perfect size for community and learning.
Entering into my 4th and last year at Franklin Pierce University, it feels more like home than just school. There are many perks to going to Franklin Pierce, the small class sizes, the ability to communicate with professors easily and having your professor know you on a first name basis since the classes are intimate. The campus is located on a beautiful lake so you feel like you are on vacation all of the time while still earning your degree. I love the atmosphere the university brings. Of course all University has their downfalls but that doesn't make them a bad university or not. I would recommend Franklin Pierce to perspective students.
I love this school. Making the decision to come here was definitely the best decision of my life. It is really small and there isn't really much around it, but I think that's what makes it so special. It's really easy to get involved and to be successful here. I have been able to do things here that I would not have had the opportunity to do if I was at any other school.

Then look for the schools that have the best programs and departments for what you want to study (including internships and career placement).
Work as hard as you can during your last few years of high school, and do the best you can on the SATs.
Apply to those schools you like the best judging on: their focus on the field you want to study, location, and other important aspects.
Visit your top choice schools.
Apply to some other ones just for safety
My classmates are generally good people.
Student government. They don't seem to do much, most people don't even know who the class officers are.
I brag about te views i have right on campus. The beautiful lake with the mountains overlookin it. I also brag aout the great lifelong friends i have made in my short time of being at this school.
No food is available beyond 11pm. In addition the closest 24 hour mini mart is 15 minutes away by driving. Very desolate here.
Franklin Pierce is a close nit community of students and teachers.
Franklin Pierce is very unique due to the small aspec of the campus, and the beautiful campus.
The most popular activity at our school is eating everyone likes food.
Teachers are good (most of them), but the school has a terrible academic reputation, so good luck finding work when you get out. Science resources are non-existent. Art program has good teachers and few resources. University president makes 300 times what most of the professors make teaching courses. Too many idiots in the classes. A third of your classes are standard 'core courses' that won't transfer to other schools. Most of your freshman and sophomore years will be filled with these courses, so good luck escaping this place, unless you are ready to start over. Writing center has good tutors, library has few books.
That we drink and smoke and hate the school. All can be true depending on the year and the student. Most party on the weekends but the older students aren't that into it. Freshman think the campus is new an exciting but by senior year you can't wait to leave it behind.
Someone who doe not like bing the middle of nowhere. Someone who likes big cities and does not like the montains. If you do not like snow or -15 nights then you should not attend ths college.
I believe that the school is best known for their athletic teams and majors in areas like business and health sciences.
some of the students are really stupid, usually the middle class ones. The poorer students can be really smart, but tend not to do well on SAT's.
Stupid students,crappy conditions
The school is run by thieves. Totally overpriced, the core curriculum courses (40 credits) will not transfer to other schools, so if you go here, you'll get stuck. Freshmen dorms are a firehazard. Power goes down several times every winter, so bring your sleeping bag. Teachers are good, administrators are liars. Student recruitment people will say anything to get you to come to the school. Don't believe a word. Run, don't walk away from them. Degree isn't worth the paper its printed on. No alumni I know has anything better than a retail job. A complete waste of time and money.
There is no Greek life at Franklin Pierce but there are many different sports teams who stick together and resemble sororities and fraternities.
I don't drink either. Everyone at FPU are so welcoming and nice. A lot of people are just wanting to have a good time for themselves. No one cares if you drink or not, its just all about your attitude when your out.
