Alumni Success Stories
"One of the greatest things that I saw carry over from Franklin Pierce was that mentality if you really want to do it that bad, go do it. There is not a lot of roadblocks in your way to stop you." - Jay McCormack '95, '13Jay McCormack '95, '13 & Erik Barone '95

"Franklin Pierce showed me I could do everything. Literally. The wide range of media concentrations and the smaller class sizes allowed me to try anything and everything, hands-on: Journalism, on-air broadcast, video production, music production, public speaking. I didn't have to wait my turn or compete with thousands of classmates. The result was a uniquely-crafted nuanced skill set that makes me a valuable job candidate and person. You have a rare opportunity at Franklin Pierce to set yourself apart from your international competition, particularly in amount of experience."Casey Williams '11
