"If you had it to do all over again, what would you do differently?" ~Justin B. '16

“I graduated class of '98 from Pierce in 3 1/2 years with 2 majors. There was only one course that would have kept me there for my final semester and I was able to substitute another. If I had to do it over again, I would have stayed for the final semester and filled my schedule with diverse courses outside my majors. The stress, workload, hit to my GPA, and the activities with friends that I missed were not worth finishing a semester early.” - Sarah Probst ‘98

“No. At Pierce, I grew. I flourished. I succeeded”- Laura Cavallo ‘73

“I graduated in 2012, and even though I've been out in the "real world" for only 3 years now, I would go back in a heart beat and do it all again. I wouldn't change anything though because I involved myself in a wide variety of activities, sports, work study jobs and met a lot of wonderful people. My words of advice would be, enrich yourself in things and people you wouldn’t normally do or talk to. That is where you gain your experience and that is what makes you grow. I love Franklin Pierce and it will always be considered my home.”- Dee Dolan ‘12

 “I'd go back tomorrow! :-)" - Kimberly Cook Neher ‘89

“I would stress less about how all my courses were going to somehow magically determine 'what I'd be when I grew up'. It took a few years but I finally came to understand that college isn't about your major; it is about realizing who you are and what you are capable of.” -NancyLynn J. Lysik ‘87

“I would have gotten more involved with student government and would have joined rugby my freshman year instead of my junior year.”- Callie Elizabeth '14

“I would have soaked everything in a little more. My time there went way too fast!”- Mike Klein ‘90

“Do both the Walk in Europe and Study Abroad. I only studied abroad in Vienna. Find a way to travel more.”- Adam Saada ‘10

“Being involved is what kept me going. Try new things, I'm happy to say I have no regrets :)" - Bianca Acebron Peco ‘14

“Not a single thing different! Except I wish I didn't live in Cheshire sophomore year. Apparently you miss out on a lot from the trenches of Edgewood and Monadnock.”- Grace Ames ‘12

“Study abroad! I had the opportunity to go abroad twice in two semesters and that was the best thing I ever did.”- Ahmos Diaz Maldonado ‘13
