Students and Parents Learn About College S tudents and parents practiced saying their goodbyes during the Student Transition Experience Program known as STEP Day. In the morning, families talked with representatives from various campus departments and learned more about the opportunities offered at FPU. Campus tours were ongoing throughout the morning before the opening marks were made by Linda Quimby, vice president for enrollment and university communications. Quimby welcomed students and their families to Rindge and gave a brief overview of what the day encompassed. Families attended informational sessions, which ranged from residential life and informational technolog y to first year academics and experiential learning. Students and parents went their separate ways during the lunch hour. Parents listened to Jim Earle, vice president for student affairs, speak about college students and the important roles parents play in their child's experience and education. Students introduced themselves and played team icebreaker games as the future Class of 2022. e transition to college is an important marker in life as a young adult. For many, it will be their first time living away from home, without the people they grew up with. And Franklin Pierce faculty and staff are experienced and prepared to help students find their passion and greatest potential. — Alexa Wallace '16 MBA '19 FIRST STEPS 16 PIERCE FALL / WINTER 2018 RAVENINGS
