O en seen as the center of academic life for communications majors, the Marlin Fitzwater Center for Communications is a place where students from all class levels and majors work with each other , communicating with both the University and the larger community. Last year marked the Center's 15th anniversary. Now, thanks to a grant from the Alden Trust, of Worcester, Mass., the Fitz will be able to further innovate its facilities and equipment. Dean Kerry McKeever and Fitzwater Center Director Kristen Nevious conceived the grant proposal which will directly benefi t students in Communications with improved technolog y and resources. " We want our students to be using the latest and greatest technolog y so when they graduate from Franklin Pierce they are prepared for whatever job they have," said McKeever. New England Emmy winner Morgan Baker '16, a Franklin Pierce University alumnus of the Marlin Fitzwater Center for Communications and current graduate assistant added, "We are really excited to have this recognition and that these new improvements are coming to the Fitz." Nevious added, " We have a big project ahead of us but we are excited about the updates it is going to bring for both our fi eld capacity and our TV studio at the Fitzwater Center."
