Pierce Proud Tour

The Alumni Pierce Proud Tour

Franklin Pierce Alumni -- we are so glad you’re stopping by our Pierce Proud Tour page. 

Calling all Alumni!

Pierce Proud Tour AdMy name is Christina Young, and I’m the Director of the Center for Engagement at Franklin Pierce University.  I joined the Institutional Advancement team in October of 2012, and it has been an amazing ride since then as I was able to experience the 50th Anniversary celebrations, participate in events, and was welcomed by  the Franklin Pierce community. This momentous year has allowed me to meet so many of you in person, others on the phone, and many by email. (I hope that at the very least you receive our monthly newsletter! If not, make sure to email me so we can update your contact information.) As we wrapped up the 50th Celebration, I decided it was time we get out on the road and meet more of you in your home towns! 

It’s been a great year on the road, and we are sad that it has come to an end! However, it was so wonderful to travel around the country and catch up with our alumni. The goal of the Pierce Proud Tour was to focus the efforts of our External Relations Committee on planning events that are regionally targeted where many alumni are living. This does not mean to say we did not try to get to areas where there are fewer alumni – however, we started out by aiming for where we are heavily saturated.  This tour was special, as my goal was to get out and find out why our alumni are “Pierce Proud”.  As Franklin Pierce continues to grow, it is imperative that we dig down to our roots and stay true to who we are. As Pierce alumni I hope you will take a moment to take our survey and tell us why you are Pierce Proud: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/PierceProud and check out the tour dates to see where we went! If we weren't able to make it to your area this year, but would like to work with our office on scheduling an event near you in the future, send me an email or give me a call.

It was great to see many of you at the Alumni Reunion Weekend on June 6-8th.  The Center for Engagement and the Alumni Reunion Weekend Committee are working hard to create another great Alumni Reunion Weekend next June 5-7th!

We loved hearing where Franklin Pierce has brought you in life, as well as hearing why you are PIERCE PROUD. A big THANK YOU again to everyone who attended our events!!
