| If you wanted to be involved in extra curricular activities or you want to major in Mass Communications you are all set. If not there is nothing there for you and a sufficient lack of support from the college. |

| Overall, FPU provided a good, intimate setting in which to complete my BA. I found many of the students to be perhaps cliqish and self conscious. The faculty was wonderful. (Of course I'm back in the days of the founders, and Dr. DiPietro.) There was only one professor that I found to be detached and impossible to figure out, with an irrascible personality. The surroundings were somewhat bleak, with little of serious interest (except for Boston, 60+ miles away). Franklin Pierce helped me to realize some goodness in myself, raising my self esteem during what was a very difficult time in my life. |

| If you don't like partying, sports, easy classes, and nature, don't even fill out an application.|
If you're coming from a big city and are gonna miss it or if you're coming here without a car, don't bother.
The student body is comprised of a large majority of the students in some form or shape within the athletics department, specifically intramural sports. You will take required classes where practically 18 out of 25 kids are on a team. One day, the class will be full, the next it will be dead because they have an away game or are hungover from a celebratory party the night before (mind you, it's a Wednesday).
Walking around any dorm or residence building, get ready to be greeted by broken beer bottles, floating cigarette butts, and the usual crushed Keystone can on the pathway. Drinking is so prevalent almost every night of the week that it isn't that hard to find a party somewhere. If you hate partying and drinking, don't go.
I had some of the best times of my life at FPU. I met some of the greatest, some of the sl*ttiest ever. If you do decide to come here, you will love the laidback mornings to the 24/7 party feel at night for your first semester (maybe even your second). Soon, the real world will hit and realization of your degree will be your wake up call.FPU is a small university full of a very active student body - outside the classroom. If you can't stand it by your first semester or get bored by the second year, you will transfer.
