Why are you Pierce Proud?
I was pretty involved at Pierce. I think at one point, I belonged to almost every single club and was on SGA Executive Board my senior year. I always wanted to have the experience of being the big fish and at Pierce, I never had that problem. The friends I made at Pierce are my best friends, and the professors I had there, I still keep in touch with and have an amazing relationship with. It’s something that you only get at FPC. I have worked in 15 states since I graduated from Pierce and everywhere I have gone, I have spread the word of the amazingness of my Alma Mater. Oh, and I totally told Senator Al Franken about how awesome Franklin Pierce is when I got my picture taken with him and Little Rocky. I still consider Rindge to be my home away from home and whenever I visit the campus, it recharges me. I don’t know if it’s Pearly Pond, or Mt. Monadnock, or just the campus. It made me into the person I am today. I couldn’t have imagined going to school anywhere else.
