Why are you Pierce Proud?
It’s a great school with a great name. It was a perfect fit for me, just the right size. I was highly involved which helped me get a “real career job” right after I graduated. I went on several interviews for Admission Counselor jobs (I was a tour guide) and feel because of my Pierce education and working with Rick Johnstone (a legend in the Admissions world), I got interviews and all of the jobs I’ve held. Many of my best friends are from Pierce. I could just go on and on- I couldn’t have asked for a better undergrad experience. If I could go back and do it all over again, I would in a heart beat!
