Franklin Pierce University Reviews
Absolutely love Franklin Pierce University! Beautiful campus, amazing professors, great academics, and wide variety of athletics. It's very clear that you are seen as more than a number- everyone takes the time to know each other and go out of their way to be friendly. Such a positive atmosphere!
This is a small school that gives you the BEST fun college experience! D2 for sports so theres always sporting events to attend busy campus with lots going on and friendly people everwhere. Everyone I met was so nice and it felt like a big "family" and home away from home! Really fun parties and being in the middle of nowhere is really relaxing. BEAUTIFUL campus! Would recommend to someone who lives in a busy aera and wants to go somewhere quiet to a really fun school!
It is an overall great school but the safety on campus and off campus is pretty bad, the area around the school is not very good for minority students and the school doesn’t do anything to protect them. The campus is beautiful and the student activities are really fun. The dorms are pretty bad, except for Lakeview and Cheshire. The athletics are okay some of the coaches aren’t very good but all the athletes create a great environment.
