SPRING 2016 \ PIERCE 7 Franklin Pierce's track team is led by a terrific coach, Zach Emerson, who has built an incredible program with quite a few All-Americans. Yet, we have no track. It's time to remedy that. The Care Quotient These ambitious projects are designed to give Franklin Pierce a strong foundation from which to expand and enrich our core strength. I call it the Franklin Pierce "Care Quotient." Over the years Franklin Pierce has distinguished itself by providing a very personalized education. I've witnessed it many times. People here care deeply about the students. They care about the student's dreams and goals, their academics, their athletic success, their life success. They really care. Or, as I have described it to our faculty many times, I've yet to meet an incoming freshman who came here because of our faculty. But when I talk to our graduates and alumni, I have yet to meet one who didn't gush about a professor (sometimes two or three) who transformed their life forever. Some of you have stayed in touch with those professors your whole life. That speaks volumes about Franklin Pierce University and its Care Quotient. It also reflects the core values of Franklin Pierce, as articulated by our students, who chose these six words to define our culture: Perseverance, Integrity, Engagement, Respect, Community, and Excellence. These students also know what makes Franklin Pierce so special. Like our #1 baseball team, Franklin Pierce University has enjoyed two outstanding years in a row. But it takes three years to make a trend. So we plan to have another great year at Franklin Pierce—meaning now is a great time for you to reconnect with your alma mater, for great things are happening and we very much want you to be a part of it. People here care deeply about the students. They care about the student's dreams and goals, their academics, their athletic success, their life success. They really care. ANDREW H. CARD, JR.
