Alumni Success Stories
"When I first stepped on the Franklin Pierce campus, I never imagined it would be the place where my dreams were going to come true; but after graduating, I was offered the opportunity to be one of the few female General Managers in male professional sports. I also never imagined that I would come out of the university with a second family. The people that I met made such an impact on my life and who I am today. I couldn't be happier with my decision to join the Franklin Pierce community."Mandi Adee '16
