Dear Parent,


Greetings from Rindge, NH!  The Spring semester has drawn to a close and we have bid farewell to the Class of 2013.  I hope the summer is off to a great start for you and your family, and that relaxing and safe times lies ahead.

The Parents Association is here to serve you!  Please contact me with any ideas or suggestions for content you would like to see in this E-Newsletter.

2013 Summer Sessions
Summer Student

Franklin Pierce University is offering two summer sessions on our Rindge campus.  Summer sessions are a great way for students to complete additional class work in a more relaxed atmosphere with smaller class sizes. 


Summer Session I runs from June 3 - June 28, 2013.  Summer Session II is in session from July 1 - July 26, 2013.


Summer session meal plans and housing options are available, and a wealth of summer recreational activities will be happening.


For more information on our summer sessions, contact the Admissions office at 800-437-0048.


Family Day 2013

Parents on Campus
All family members of currently enrolled students are welcome to join us on our Rindge, NH campus for Family Day. 

Scheduled for Saturday, October 5, Family Day is a great way to learn more about Franklin Pierce University, and to enjoy all that our beautiful campus has to offer.  Activities are planned for all ages.  More details will be in our September E-Newsletter, but we wanted you to have the date now.  We look forward to seeing you at Family Day!



Many of the internship opportunities available to our students come from the employers of our parents.  Do you work for a company that offers internships to undergraduate college students?  If not, might your company be willing to consider offering internships?  Help our students get a head-start on their future employment by letting us know.

To find out details on how to offer an internship to a Franklin Pierce student, contact our Career Services office, and speak with either Rosemary Nichols or Anne Goodrich-Bazan.
