Pierce Pride: I found Franklin Pierce to be a perfect fit for me as a student because of the small class sizes and the opportunities available for students. As an admissions tour guide and other extra curriculars, I was able to easily find my niche even at such a small school. As an alum, I am very fortunate enough to still be able work with families and share my experiences as a student at Pierce.”
