Franklin Pierce welcomes you back to campus_ by yaofenjin


									                      Franklin Pierce welcomes you back to campus!
The University is looking forward to your return to our campus. There have been a lot of great things happening
and we think you will enjoy seeing and hearing about them.
   • We will break ground on a new Health Science and Athletic Training Center to house health programs
     on the Rindge campus this fall with a completion date of the summer of 2012.
   • Phase II of the dining hall renovations are complete. Check out the new serving stations, menu choices
     and bright colors.
   • Our Career Center has moved to a larger area to better serve your needs. Take advantage of the
     opportunities this provides you.
   • We have an exciting new certificate – documentary studies – for those of you who would like to develop
     the skills of a good documentary storyteller.
   • Our first group of Pierce on the Camino students is leaving soon for their journey from Paris to Santiago
     de Compostela. They will share with you their experience as they walk along this old pilgrimage route.
   • Our Pierce Media group has already begun their 2012 election coverage and you will hear more from
     these journalists, and even join them if you’d like.

Learn about these improvements and more in an upcoming enewsletter. At Franklin Pierce, there are many such
experiences available to all students so take advantage of every opportunity that interests you.
