Your Pierce Annual Fund Contributions at Work

A Franklin Pierce education was Liesel's formula to success on a path toward leading-edge research


"When I was applying for college, I was looking for a place where I would get the individual attention and academic rigor needed to pursue a post-graduate degree in dentistry. When I was accepted at Franklin Pierce, I knew I found my academic home. The opportunities and professors at Franklin Pierce have helped me to excel beyond my expectations - both in the classroom and beyond the campus.

Liesel Bauer '06 with Ralph Tripp '84I took an internship at the University of Georgia with Franklin Pierce alumnus Ralph A. Tripp '84. The cutting edge clinical research I performed in the study of virology and specifically respiratory diseases solidified my decision to pursue a Ph.D. in the same field.

The education I received at Franklin Pierce, along with the experience I gained during my internship, has prepared me for Harvard University's Division of Medical Sciences Ph.D. program in Virology.

I am so thankful for the many opportunities I've had at Franklin Pierce. Without the financial support of Franklin Pierce and individuals such as you, I believe I might not have found my current path.

The network of people committed to helping me get the most
of my Franklin Pierce education inspires me to give back.
If you feel the same way, I encourage you to support the Pierce Annual Fund.
