Get Involved Outside of the Classroom
Co-curricular experiences are the “life-blood” of student culture at Franklin Pierce. In part, students attend our small university because they are attracted to the notion that they can be involved. They can be “someone” and be an important part of a vibrant community. Becoming involved helps define them as individual members of this community, and also contributes to an evolving definition of what this community will be.
Student Involvement staff are dedicated to working with students throughout their four years at Franklin Pierce. The staff team encourages students to engage beyond the classroom and put into practice that which they have learned in ways not before realized.
We are always available to answer your questions about activities, student groups, events, and getting involved at Franklin Pierce University or the surrounding communities.
