Student & Graduate Reviews (5)

5 out of 5
Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2015

Choosing which college to attend was really a struggle for me. As the deadline to decide a school approached, an admissions member personally called me and talked me through the decision process, being completely unbiased about Franklin Pierce. She just wanted to help me and relieve some stress. This is the attitude of everyone that works at Franklin Pierce, from the faculty members, to the staff, and even the environmental services. The biology and environmental sciences faculty are amazing and willing to help with anything. Their office doors are never closed and you can walk right in with questions pertaining to class or even just to chat. The campus is beautiful whether its spring and the flowers are blooming or covered in snow and the school provides numerous campus wide activities to promote a sense of community. Pearly Pond is open during the fall and spring semesters when the weather is nice and you can take out kayaks and paddle boards. You will really feel at home here and I encourage everyone to attend.

Franklin Pierce University was an amazing experience. The faculty truly care about you as an individual and want you to succeed. Small class sizes also ensure that you're not just a number, but an individual. You're encouraged to think, voice your opinion and learn about the world around you. Not to mention that the campus is beautiful. Spending four years at Franklin Pierce gave me the knowledge and confidence to succeed as an adult. This school is great for students who are community oriented and don't want to blend into the crowd. Ultimately, Franklin Pierce was the right choice for me. Are some of the dorms dated, yes, does the water contain minerals that cause it to not be crystal clear after a rain, sure, but those issues pale in comparison to the friendships and experience that Franklin Pierce offers.

Degree: Psychology, General
Graduation Year: 2013

The school administration is very unorganized. They don't care about their students, they just try and trick more students into going there. The dorms are dirty all the time. The water is gross. The food is extremely bad. The students are all stuck up.

Franklin University AS in Business Administration I enjoyed learning online as I could work at my own pace. The entire course's assignments were posted at the beginning and I could work on as many as I wanted at a time. Team projects made it more like a class and encouraged us to meet and speak with each other. Most of the teachers were good at their job. The coursework consisted of writing papers, taking proctored tests, posting on a bulletin board each week/day and a team project. We utilized an online bulletin board, a course schedule, textbook websites, email and FranklinLive, which was an online real time chat/meeting room containing a whiteboard. Through these tools we learned from our professor, and we were able to meet as a team to work on our projects. It made life alot easier than trying to do it all through email. Overall I enjoyed my experience with Franklin University. I feel that it provided a well rounded approach to distance learning.
