The faculty and students are very welcoming and happy! Professors are very enthusiastic with what they teach. A few things that can be improved are the living spaces, specifically freshman communal restrooms, and the cafe food.
Review Your College
I love my school, we have the best school spirit. Every one is so friendly it is very easy to make friends here, everyone knows everyone. It has its ups and its downs like any other place. Location wise it is beautiful campus, gets very cold in the winter. Don't worry about the weather because the classrooms are the best temperature. As for the faculty they are welcoming always willing to help you and they know you on a personal basis.
Franklin Pierce University is a small college. Therefore it has a very tight-knit campus. Everybody on campus knows everybody else. this makes the experience much more personal and allows greater friendships and relationships to evolve. People are closer on this campus. Also, because it is a smaller school, most classes have small numbers as well. This allows the professors to teach all students equally as well as develop closer relationships to their students. I feel as if I have made more substantial relationships with my professors at Franklin Pierce than I would have if I chose a larger school.
