President's Message Board of Trustees Leslye A. Arsht
o paraphrase the Greek Philosopher, Heraclitus, the only permanence in life is change. And so it is that change comes to Franklin Pierce University in the form of Ahmad Boura's resignation. Ahmad, who has served the University for nearly 14 years, most recently as the Vice President for Institutional Advancement, has accepted an offer to continue his career at Morningside College in Iowa. I join many of you who consider Ahmad our friend, and I will miss him. But this is a good move for Ahmad, and I am happy Franklin Pierce has helped him to achieve another goal in his life. Ahmad's departure presents a new opportunity for Franklin Pierce to find someone to lead us into our next 50 years. A search is underway for the next Vice President, and I am encouraged by the quality of resumes I have already received. I expect to fill the vacancy in early fall and will share more information then. As we close out our year-long celebration of our 50th Anniversary, I hope you have had an opportunity to join us at one or more Franklin Pierce events. If not, there are still many activities in which you can participate, from Red Sox games, to alumni receptions, to campus events, to the Alumni and Reunion Weekend October 4-6. Please check the website, www.franklinpierce.edu/50, to see the list of activities planned. I hope to see you in the near future. Ex Umbris Ad Lucem,

Community Service Alternative Spring Break hen most people think of Spring Break, they do not necessarily think of sleeping on hard floors and spending hours in the heat doing manual labor. But that's just what communityservice minded Franklin Pierce students and staff do every year during Alternative Spring Break. Last April, 13 Franklin Pierce University students and two staff advisors – Assistant Dean of Student Involvement Scott Ansevin-Allen and Director of Judicial Affairs Bill Sweet – teamed up with Habitat for Humanity’s Collegiate Challenge to work on building homes in Wilmington, Del. The students and advisors drove down together in three vans, offering their time and energy to paint and do interior and outdoor project work on the newly built or rehabbed homes. "I established the Franklin Pierce Alternative Break Program in 1999, leading each trip with the support of dedicated students since that time," says Scott Ansevin-Allen. "It all started when I saw an opportunity to mix my love for experiential travel with my commitment to service. Growing up, I had the opportunity to experience our country and the world; the ASB Program allows me to pass on a taste of what I experienced to our students. There are so many regions and cultures within this nation to be explored and understood. I have always framed the experience to incorporate both a service component and an opportunity to experience the local culture. I think it's a great program because students become well-rounded citizens – I enjoy watching them grow. The best thing about it from my perspective is that our students have the opportunity to live out their commitment to the greater good." During Alternative Spring Break, all of the students slept on the floor of one of the Habitat for Humanity houses and took turns cooking in teams. Shortly after the students' arrival, they were given the opportunity to meet with a family that would be

moving into one of the Habitat for Humanity homes. The couple explained to them how they would be able to give their children a better home and described the positive changes that Habitat for Humanity had made in the neighborhood by rehabilitating homes there. "I love helping others and trying to make a difference," said Amelia Walters '13, one of the student team leaders of the 2013 Alternative Spring Break. "That's what I want to do with a career. It's hard work, but it's rewarding – especially when you get to meet the family. You know you're changing lives." Amelia was part of the Alternative Spring Break program for three years while at Franklin Pierce and plans to volunteer with AmeriCorps before ultimately becoming a doctor of physical therapy. "This trip really inspired me to continue to do volunteer work. I know I can be involved in something that can make a great change – and it's really fun!" The other team leaders for the 2013 break were Miranda Mantello '13, Kathryn Bernier '13, and Brad Arena '14, who all helped plan the week. The 2014 Alternative Spring Break team leaders are Brad Arena and Dave Schwartz '14. Students who are interested in Alternative Spring Break generally complete applications for the program by November; Scott and the team leaders meet with them weekly in order to prepare for the annual March trip. "I look forward to the upcoming Alternative Spring Break 2014," says Scott. "It's always a highlight of the academic year."
Arts & Culture Creating Theater he Theater Department is a robust center of creativity where students from many disciplines throughout the University find a welcome home for artistic expression. Last spring, Vanishing Point, an original musical by Prof. Bob Lawson, was performed by 17 students. Another two dozen were involved in producing the show (working on sets, lighting, costumes, etc.), and 11 students assisted in the initial development of the project as part of their course work. Most of the students were not theater majors and represented many fields of study throughout the University. Lead actor Kyle Mulcahy '13 was a Business major, and Carl Hovagimian '14 is a Music major who produced all the music for the show; there were majors from Anthropology to Health Sciences and everything in between. But every student had one thing in common: a love of theater.

Lawson has been writing new scripts for students to perform throughout the 20 years he has been teaching at Franklin Pierce. He describes the theatrical creative process that typically enfolds: "We often start with just an idea. I cast an ensemble of diverse students, take the core idea, and as a collective, we start to see what it is in a theatrical context. My particular skill is to take all of what emerges and fashion it into a cohesive piece of theater. The students learn how to impose a structure on the process â€“ how to bring theater out of chaos. Students and faculty must also be resourceful with respect to utilizing the Warehouse Theater facility to its best. In this untraditional space," Lawson says, "we have to constantly find creative solutions." Apparently they did a good job at accomplishing all that, because Vanishing Point was "held" for the Kennedy Center/American College Theater Festival â€“ a national organization which promotes excellence in theater. Being "held" means that in December, the Theater Department will find out if Vanishing Point is one of six New England plays to get invited to perform at the regional festival. Out of those chosen to participate in a regional festival nationwide, six are then chosen to remount their productions at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. in April. Franklin Pierce was invited to at least a dozen regional festivals in the past and was selected to perform its production of . . . but the rain is full of ghosts at the Kennedy Center ten years ago. "Every year kids come out for theater, and the Theater Department acts as a crossroads for this passion," Prof. Lawson says. "The students believe that art, and the process of making art, is incredibly important. Culturally, I think society thinks art is frivolous. But take a mental walk through a typical day, and see how many times you encounter music, visual art, TV, or film. If you removed all of that from our lives, we would live a barren existence. And live performance adds one last layer that a lot of art doesn't have; theater is about humans observing other humans engaged in the process of using art and imagination to find greater truths. This process speaks to Einstein's, 'Imagination is

more important than knowledge,' and I think the development of that part of the mind is enormously valuable and applicable to all human endeavors. This is the work that the best theater sets out to do."
Left to right: Kelsey Devlin '15, Kaitlin Mosher '16, Alyssa Segui '16, Kyle Fletcher '16, Kyle Mulcahy '13
Most of the students involved in Vanishing Point worked on the show for 2Â˝-3 months of rehearsals, four rehearsals/week, 3-4 hours for each rehearsal; the level of commitment required clearly demonstrates the high value placed on the experience. Franklin Pierce students from a wide array of disciplines are fortunate to be able to be part of this highly creative process of performing and producing new plays, as well as works already in the theater repertoire. At many schools, being in a play is largely available only to theater majors, but at Franklin Pierce, with its relatively small number of theater majors, there is ample opportunity for the Franklin Pierce community to participate in the best of what a Liberal Arts education has to offer. And that deserves a standing ovation!
Getting Down to Business By Dr. Edward French and Dr. Maria Garcia
hree components make up the business program at Franklin Pierce University: the traditional undergraduate program offered by the College at Rindge, as well as the adult undergraduate and the graduate business programs, both offered by the College of Graduate & Professional Studies (CGPS). The business program began in 1972 when the Department of Economics and Business was introduced on the Rindge campus. Since then, the program has grown to include five undergraduate business degrees (expanding to six), as well as an M.B.A. program with six concentration tracks. Based on our fall 2012 headcount data, the business programs represent an impressive 20 percent of the student population. The business programs have a common goal, but there are differences, including reporting structures, delivery methods, and student profiles. Despite these differences, we are one University and take great pride in our ability to work together in a collaborative fashion, with the ultimate goal of meeting the mission of the University and the needs of the student.
This collaborative spirit has existed for a number of years but is now developing in more robust ways. Three specific areas of collaboration include the research, development, and launch of the Business Plus
Franklin Pierce University fall 2013
program in 2011 and first offered to students in 2012-13; program accreditation efforts which commenced in 2011 and are expected to conclude with business program accreditation in 2014; and a new and more formal cooperation and collaboration with the first joint appointment of a faculty member to both Rindge and CGPS.
Business Plus The Business Plus programs are Franklin Pierceâ€™s answer to students looking for pathways to navigate college and to earn their degree in less time. These programs provide
Business majors the opportunity to complete a business degree in as little as three years, and the completion of a masterâ€™s degree in as little as one additional year. Benefits of becoming a Business Plus student are numerous. The program comes in many flavors: accelerated 3, 3+1, 4+1, and +1. An important aspect that differentiates our program is the ability of students to switch programs or return to a traditional model at any point in time. Moreover, students in the program are assigned a Plus advisor in addition to their regular advisor. The Plus advisors work with the
students to help them navigate the program and to stay on track. Students in the accelerated undergraduate program may save as much as $34,000 (based on current rates) in tuition and room and board. Seniors may transfer up to six graduate-level undergraduate credits into their graduate program, resulting in a tuition savings of as much as 15 percent (or $3,400 at current rates). Advisors work closely with students to develop personalized schedules to fit their needs. This is especially important to those students playing collegiate sports, working, or volunteering. Sixteen students joined the program in 2012-13, and 17 more are expected to join this fall. One Business Plus student, Susannah Batchelder '13, who is already pursuing her M.B.A., shared, “The ability to start my graduate work as an undergraduate student opened up a world of opportunities for me. The program has pushed me to explore my potential, while expanding my learning and contributing to my professional experience.”
Accreditation The Franklin Pierce University Business programs took a gigantic step forward in 2011 by moving ahead with a decision to seek program accreditation. After a review of the possible accrediting bodies, the business faculty chose to pursue accreditation through the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education (IACBE), a business program accreditor located in Lenexa, Kan., recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation. Consistent with the New England Association of Schools and Colleges standards, IACBE is an accreditor that is mission focused and outcomes based. Franklin Pierce joined IACBE as an Educational Member in September 2011. After completion of Outcome Assessment plans for the graduate and undergraduate business programs and the submission of a comprehensive package supporting the school’s request for accreditation candidacy, a representative from the IACBE conducted a candidacy site visit in September 2012. In November 2012, the IACBE Board of Commissioners approved
Small Business Advisory Group The Small Business Advisory Group (SBA) is a great opportunity for undergraduate business students on the Rindge campus to develop direct experience in the business world. The SBA consulting group consists of a problem-solving student team and a faculty advisor that assist New Hampshire small businesses, nonprofit organizations, and special projects for Franklin Pierce University. Throughout the semester, the consulting group develops business plans, marketing plans, eCommerce strategies, advertising/public relations campaigns, marketing research, and other strategic deliverables that aid in the success and growth of the organization. The SBA experience allows team members to learn how to work directly with a client and develop communication, team, and leadership skills. Students are highly motivated when they are engaged with hands-on business problems. Students apply what they have learned in their coursework, but also crystallize their career paths due to the insights they gain as practical consultants. During the 2012-2013 academic year, the SBA completed work for Sedona Pump Stations, LLC, which specializes in solar hot water pumps for home owners. The SBA created a complete portfolio of marketing deliverables to attract both consumers and distributors to Sedona’s products, including a brochure, professional page, fact sheet, and direct mail piece, all designed and executed based on research and market analysis. A second project completed by the SBA included a research project related to the sale and distribution of community works of art on the Franklin Pierce University campus. ~ By Jason Little, Professor of Marketing

Another highlight of the closer working relationship between Rindge and CGPS is the first joint faculty appointment. Dr. Andrea McGill-O’Rourke will start in the fall 2013 as an assistant professor and program coordinator for the new Rindge Healthcare Administration undergraduate business degree, where she will spend threequarters of her time. The other quarter of her time will be spent with CGPS, supporting the adult undergraduate and the M.B.A. in Health Administration programs. Her responsibilities will include curriculum development, teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, and the development of pathway programs to create a seamless transition for students to complete both undergraduate and graduate degrees in Healthcare Administration.

Mission Ready These are just a few of the exciting things going on within the business programs. These ongoing efforts are creating greater and stronger links between the programs, consistent with the goal of “One University” and a desire to provide real and concrete opportunities for our students. As we move forward, we are focused on looking at business programming from the macro perspective. Our efforts and activities will address what is needed for the business programs to deliver on the mission of the University by preparing “students to become confident, knowledgeable individuals and leaders of conscience.”
To ensure relevancy of curriculum and development of internship and networking opportunities, Dr. McGillO’Rourke will develop outreach opportunities with industry leaders in the health field. Dean Kerry McKeever observes, “Not only does Dr. McGill-O’Rourke bring 20 years of experience to her position, but she is conversant in the contemporary shifts taking place in

Sustainability Community "Seeds" Planted

ommunity building has been a theme in this year's sustainability efforts at Franklin Pierce. Members of the Sustainability Council, along with students and Residential Life, Facilities, and Library staff, have been creating a stronger, more resilient community as a result of several Sustainability Center projects. A new campus garden was built during Earth Week 2013. Located on the south side of the Campus Center facing Pearly Pond, the campus garden is to be an outdoor classroom, gathering place, and resource for learning and events (in addition to food). It is a "seed" with potential for future growth, open to â€“ and relying on â€“ every community member. Faculty and staff donated animal manure, plants, and expertise, and over 100 Freshman Composition and Sustainability Certificate students participated in the digging, construction, and planting of the garden. The hands-on work accompanied a semester-long exploration of food and sustainability called "Digging In," in which students engaged in deliberative dialogue, hosted a panel of local farmers and sustainability leaders, and conducted a public forum. Lacey Allain, a Class of 2016 Senator and one of the students who participated
in the project, will attend the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education 2013 Conference in Nashville this fall to co-present the "Digging In" project with me. The presentation will focus on how various community members came together to create a shared learning experience and built a resource for food and sustainable leadership on the Rindge campus. Community-based approaches to protecting water resources were the focus of "Creating Sustainable Communities," taught by Environmental Science Professor Catherine Koning. Students conducted interviews, surveys and research, created educational posters and web content, and wrote recommendations for campus leaders to consider. To reduce water use and waste from disposable water bottles, students recommended educating community members about the safety of Franklin Pierce tap water and the drastic negative impact that disposable water bottles have on the environment. Students also recommended joining the growing number of universities and towns that have banned the sale of disposable water bottles, and providing all guest speakers, particularly at Commencement, with reusable water bottles. Other solutions included creating a field guide to Pearly Pond aquatic life, holding
regular lakeshore clean-ups, mapping drainage paths to the lake, and educating Franklin Pierce lifeguards and others about lake issues so they may educate others. The Sustainability Council will use the recommendations in its work, and Sustainability Certificate students will have the opportunity to implement them through sustainability projects. Community members interested in keeping natural and human communities thriving on campus are welcome to participate. The Sustainability Council meets monthly and is open to new members. Call (603) 899-4175 or send an email to: sustainabilitycoordinator@ franklinpierce.edu for information.

Being Abroad Pierce on the Camino By Prof. Douglas Challenger
artin Buber said, "All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveler is unaware." This beautifully describes the many profound and unanticipated lessons students learn from travel and studying abroad. At Franklin Pierce, students have available an even more transformative study abroad experience in the Camino program that began in 2011. That is when my partner Laurie Stamell and I led the first group of students on a semester-long 800-mile walk on the ancient European pilgrimage trail known as the Camino de Santiago. The program now runs every other year; we will lead a second trip during the fall semester of 2013. Before the walking part of the program begins, students study Spanish and French intensively and take a seminar on the history of the Camino, the anthropology of pilgrimage, and the sociological reasons
Franklin Pierce University fall 2013
for its modern renaissance. This year, these courses will take place in August in the heart of the Basque country of Spain in the city of San Sebastian. Then, for two and half months we become pilgrims, walking from Cahors, France, through some of the most beautiful medieval villages of France, over the Pyrenees Mountains into Spain, and across the entire northern part of the Iberian Peninsula to the Atlantic Ocean, ending at an outcropping that ancient people thought was "the end of the earth" â€“ today's seaport town of Finisterre. When students return home, they write an extensive essay on their travels and the pilgrimage experience. They receive a semester's worth of credit toward their Franklin Pierce degree for their successful participation in the program. Semester-long walks in Europe have been a part of Franklin Pierce since 1969, two of which I helped lead in 2005 and 2006. Inspired by the transformative experiences
of these walks, I found the Camino and walked it myself in 2007. Based on that experience, I began to create a new walk/ study abroad program for Franklin Pierce. Only two years old, the Camino program is unique in the study abroad landscape of higher education in America and has already attracted external funding. Inspired by the depth and ambition of this innovative curricular offering, FairPoint Communications has provided a significant financial gift to help support Camino student scholarships and faculty development in 2013. In this short, award-winning video, Franklin Pierce students describe the unexpected "secret destinations" that the Camino journey provided them in 2011: www.youtube.com/ watch?v=NVsvdtxsj2A.
Speaking of the Web From Art to 'Net Management
By Richard Berube '98, Website Manager
an easy one. The bottom line is that I love creating things, thinking critically, solving problems, and creating something that has a purpose â€“ from communicating the correct message in a promotional poster to creating a Web page that can tell a story, sell a product, or simply send an inquiry form.
s the Web manager at Franklin Pierce, I take care of everything on our website and on our Intranet site (eRaven). I attended Franklin Pierce from 1994-98 and loved my college experiences and academic career. I wasn't always a computer geek; I was an art geek, majoring in Graphic Communications. After graduation, I worked as a graphic artist, producing marketing print materials for a parent company that launched several dot-com companies in the greater Boston area. My print design skills were stronger than my Web design skills, but I learned new software, picked up more Web markup experience, and even did troubleshooting on my work computer when it was not running right since the small company did not have their own "computer fix-it people." The business potential that the Web offered altered my career direction from print design to Web design. My major in Graphic Communications bridged the gap between art and technology, which made my transition
I enjoy learning new software, working on computers, and learning about new Web technologies. With ever-expanding Internet capabilities, the Web and wireless connectivity has changed how we interact with the Web. Whether you are using Windows, Apple OS, a computer running Linux, a tablet, or a smartphone, we all eventually connect to the Web, and because of that, the Web is quickly getting bigger and more complex. I do a variety of things to help keep up with all the technology changes. Freelancing, volunteering, and just "geeking" on my own time helps me practice new tricks and new technologies. What I do for work is also my hobby; I geek-out, trying out new Web frameworks on a virtual server, writing code, playing around in graphics programs, or installing more RAM in my home computer. I do save time to play with my dog, ride my bike, or hang with friends and family â€“ from whom I still get calls for free computer and Web technical support.
projects and campaigns, there are also Federal, State, and accreditation requirements that the website must have or do. In addition to basic maintenance of the site that needs to be done regularly, there are general requests for changes that come in on a daily basis. Requests for changes vary drastically; some changes can take two minutes, while more intricate changes or bigger projects may take three months or longer. Requests include everything from changing a phone number to adding a new multi-page project, adding a photo gallery, building a marketing campaign landing page, building a database-driven page or sub-site, or migrating a site to a new server. All requests are approved on a project basis and are tracked and archived. Sound like fun? I love this stuff! I plan on pursuing an M.B.A. in Information Technology at Franklin Pierce so that I can manage better and smarter, and be an even bigger geek. I have fond memories of my college years at Franklin Pierce and am excited that I am working for my alma mater, doing something I love, and also have the opportunity to pursue an advanced degree. Stop in and say hello when you're on the Rindge campus; I'll be at my computer!

Franklin Pierce University fall 2013
The Chance Worth Taking! By Christina Young, Director of Alumni Relations
nspirational speaker Harvey Mackay once said, “Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets, so love the people who treat you right, forget about the ones who don't, and believe that everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said life would be easy, they just promised it would be worth it.” This alumni’s story speaks volumes about what taking one chance did for his life – he is living proof as to why it was worth it. Introducing Shaun Hoffman ’02.
The Franklin Pierce Days Shaun grew up in Canton, Mass., and attended Canton High School (CHS). His connection to Franklin Pierce started while working in the CHS Theater Department in lighting, where he met Bryan Perrault ’95 who worked on sound. When discussing Shaun’s options after graduating from high school, Bryan encouraged Shaun to apply to Franklin Pierce. A week after sending in his application, a postcard arrived asking Shaun to take his SATs. “The rest rolled like clockwork,” he says. Shaun reflected on his first days on the Rindge campus. “All I knew of college life was what I had seen in the movies – which wasn’t much. I think what made me most nervous was that I didn’t know what it was going to be like or where I would end up – where I would fit.” But find his fit he did – in the Theater Department and with the Basketball Team. Thanks to his favorite professors, Bob Lawson, Nancy Stone, Lee Dunholter, and Rich Silvestro in the Theater Department, Shaun’s love of behind the scenes work was put to good use at Franklin Pierce. Shaun came to theater as a “techie, not a performer,” says Prof. Lawson, “and that’s definitely on the rare side, because at that age, most come to the theater as performers. And Shaun wasn’t just a techie by default, but someone with a real passion for the tech side, from lighting to stage management. Shaun arrived here at the early stages, when we were getting really adventurous in the work we were making. I believe the first show he was involved with was Poison Heart, a very complex piece of theater in all ways, which he was involved with in multiple aspects.” Poison Heart went on to a regional festival of the Kennedy Center/ American College Theater Festival (ACTF). “It was very much like taking a show on the road, necessitating alterations in the set, staging, lights – all of it – to accommodate a very different theater than the Warehouse,” Prof. Lawson said. Shaun was so successful with his work in the Theater
Department that they sent him to one of the ACTF regional festivals to stage manage 10-minute play projects “which, again, demanded a lot of creative thinking on your feet in a tight time frame,” according to Prof. Lawson. Professor Nancy Stone remembers Shaun being a student with many interests, and as one of the students who liked to stop in during office hours just to talk. “Most students come to office hours when they have a problem, and while Shaun did that too, mainly he just wanted to talk about the current production we were working on, or current events, his beloved grandmother, or shows he might have seen in New York,” she says fondly. But theater was not the only love Shaun had while at Franklin Pierce. Shaun roomed with several basketball players over the years, including Donald Edge ’00, Donald Johnson ’01, the late Kevin Scott ’02, Voir-Yulo “VJ” Kwity ’03, Mike Fortier ’04, and Alfonzo Payne ’02. Alfonzo’s first introduction to Shaun was as “Pizza Man” at the Franklin Pierce home games. “While I didn’t know him personally during the first few months, I was amazed at how full of energy and spirited this young man was,” Alfonzo said. “I mean, for anyone to run around the Fieldhouse in a full costume where there didn’t appear to be a thermostat in the building was pretty amazing. After meeting him personally and later becoming roommates, I found Shaun to be very much like a brother, companion, and someone I could confide in and lean on at any time.” His second family quickly made the court Shaun’s second home. Coach David Chadbourne said the infamous Pizza Man title started off as a kind of manager/circus attraction. “He would dress up in a mask and cape and run around at halftime giving away pieces of pizza. The crowd loved Pizza Man. Then he grew into a more serious manager who did a ton of things behind the scenes to help the team.” Shaun was the go-to guy for anything from arranging meals, setting up hotels for film sessions, running the video, or handling the book.
Shaun made such a significant impression on Bruce Kirsh ’71 that he said he was the best manager the program had ever seen. In 1999, and again in 2000, Shaun was awarded the Fred Berger Scholarship, which is given to a student who manages an intercollegiate team and is in good academic standing. Shaun also helped out with Spring Weekend each year, loading bands in and out and helping with band selection. “Shaun was fully committed to bringing great live music to campus,” said Scott Ansevin-Allen, assistant dean of Student Involvement. “He was consistently involved from promotion to set-up to event support to breakdown.” Shaun’s time at Franklin Pierce was preparing him for what his future would hold, but he had no idea of this at the time.
The Chance Taken After graduation, Shaun moved to Boston and worked as a waiter at Whiskey’s and was then promoted to a manager, managing 45-50 people at a time. During that same period of time, he began to work with a New York City rock band called Semi Precious Weapons (SPW), booking their shows for them every two months. Shaun traveled back and forth from Boston to New York just to be a part of it all. “I knew it was worth it because I believed in them, and honestly, I had more fun doing that than anything else,” Shaun says. After two months, Shaun decided to move to New York for SPW and began waiting tables at Planet Hollywood in Times Square. SPW – comprised of Berklee College of Music graduates Justin Tranter, Cole Whittle, Dan Crean, and Aaron Lee Tasjan – was signed in 2008 by Razor & Tie, who re-released their album “We Love You.” The band became increasingly successful and was eventually asked to go on tour with Lady Gaga. At that point, Shaun began working with a band called Glasvegas, a Scottish indie rock band from Glasgow, which had received critical acclaim for their platinum selling debut album. Shaun drum teched and assisted them for only $50 a day. “I can remember back in school when there were days the phone would get shut off because I couldn’t pay my bill, so any money was good money,” Shaun confesses. Little did he know what his future had in store for him! In June 2012, Glasvegas was planning to go on tour at the Glastonbury Festival in England. Shaun knew he wanted to go, but the band did not have the budget to cover him. It was then that he decided to “just do it.” Shaun booked a ticket and told the band he would work for free if they could find him a floor to sleep on. At the end of the first week of the tour, Shaun was having breakfast with the lead singer of Glasvegas, James Allan. Shaun explained how much he enjoyed the tour and that he was working

for free because he believed in the band. James wound up hiring him for the whole summer.
his tour manager, he jokes, "There are two types of men in the world, and Shaun Hoffman is neither one!"
When Shaun returned home from the summer tour, he went back to waiting tables at Planet Hollywood for eight months. Things were starting to look like they would never turn around again, when Shaun took a weekend off to celebrate his birthday. He and Jimmie Hunt ’04 were watching the U.S. World Cup, when SPW – who had since signed a major record deal with Interscope Records with Lady Gaga – texted Shaun to ask him to go with them on tour with Lady Gaga. “I can remember it like it was yesterday,” Shaun says. “I looked at Jimmie and asked him what I should do.” Jimmie said, “Shaun, you need to do this. You aren’t happy doing anything else.” Four hours later, Shaun called to accept the offer.
A Life Changed
Shaun spent six months on the Monsterball Tour when he was approached by Lady Gaga’s tour manager. She knew of someone whose management team had an opening; that opening was for Bruno Mars. “I thought she was crazy,” Shaun confesses. “I had very little experience. I mean, I had just been waiting tables at Planet Hollywood!” But Shaun applied and had a ten-minute conversation with the manager, Brandon Creed, and Bruno’s tour manager at the time, Derek Brenner. And that’s when Shaun’s life changed – when all the pieces fell into the puzzle. Shaun was hired as Bruno Mars’ tour manager. He started in January 2011, and it was anything but a slow start. Shaun’s first experience with television was for an appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres show that was quickly followed by the Grammy’s. “Bruno was just taking off at that point,” Shaun says. “We went from a travel crew of 12 people to 50 people, one bus to five trucks, and a six-piece band to a nine-piece band – in what felt like overnight.” Bruno’s career soared, with sales of 8 million albums and 58 million singles worldwide, and awards including a Grammy, an American Music Award, a Billboard Music Award, and a BRIT Award. As for Bruno's feelings about
In a typical day, Shaun wakes up to a multitude of emails and confirms rooms for whatever hotel they will be in for the week. He checks on flights, ensures that everyone is awake, works on the sound check parties, sets up any ‘meet and greets,’ caters to the label people, secures any guest passes, and attends to all the other details for Bruno and his band. Then the show goes on, and Shaun arranges for the after party, club, or dinner for the group. “That’s your typical show day,” Shaun laughs. What Shaun loves most about his job is that no two days are ever the same. “Whether it’s a private party, a new TV show, or a video shooting, you are always around new people,” Shaun says. Many days Shaun cannot believe that this is his life now. “How did this happen?” he asks himself. “So many times I could have made a slightly different decision – and my life would have been completely different.” His advice to the students at Franklin Pierce, both past and current, is to “always know that anything’s possible, and it’s what you make of it.” Prof. Lawson summed up Franklin Pierce’s pride for Shaun’s success: “A lot of kids get involved in theater in high school – the number of people who go into it professionally is a scant percentage of those high schoolers. It takes a massive amount of passion, acquired and applied skill, a collaborative brain and personality, and the good luck that all of that can magnetize – all of which Shaun has, or he wouldn’t be doing what he’s doing today. I’m happy to have been there when he was starting out and to have been one of his mentors in that phase. He deserves an enormous round of applause.” Agreed! The Alumni Association at Franklin Pierce University is so proud to call Shaun part of the alumni family, and looks forward to following his amazing career.
The Marlin Fitzwater Center for Communication Looking Back with Pride s the University celebrated its 50th Anniversary over the past year, many alumni have shared fond memories of spinning vinyl over WFPC from the porch of the Manor, filming in the basement of the Library (while trying to avoid capturing the flushing toilet on the audio track), or laying out the Pierce Arrow. And, as they finished their stories, they inevitably looked around the Marlin Fitzwater Center for Communication and marveled at the opportunities it represented. At the Fitzwater Center Honors in April, Dr. James Birge draped inaugural Pierce Media Group Leadership Cords over the shoulders of seven graduating seniors who had seized those opportunities. Valerie Armstrong, Patrick Ballantyne, Zachary BylaskaDavies, Jennifer Connors, Samantha Deabay, Morgan Miller, and Amelia Walters wore their cords – earned over six semesters with the Pierce Media Group (PMG), two of them in leadership positions – with pride at the 2013 Commencement. Established in recognition of the 10th Anniversary of the Marlin Fitzwater Center for Communication, the cords acknowledge the vital contributions these students made to the success of the PMG and the Center.

The student media – led by PMG Fellows who work with executive boards – has expanded over the years to include Raven Sports Network, Four Corners Marketing, PMG Social Media, and PoliticsFitzU. Collectively, the PMG has the potential to reach every member of the Franklin Pierce University community 24/7. More than 100 students work in PMG every year, donating a self-reported average of seven hours per week, for 13 weeks per semester, for a total of more than 18,000 hours each year. Marlin Fitzwater was on campus several times during the year and remarked, "There is no journalism substitute for the rigors of writing, reporting, and thinking about the issues of the day. The Fitzwater Center is hands on. If bricks and mortar can stimulate this process, all the better." As we look forward to our next 50 years, we are confident that the Fitzwater Center will continue to be a cornerstone for stellar media opportunities for Franklin Pierce students. It will also continue to be a valued source for varied forms of communications and information for the entire Franklin Pierce community.
Monadnock Institute of Nature, Place & Culture Flood Waters on the Nubanusit & Place Scholarship 2013 he Monadnock Institute, in partnership with the Monadnock Center for History and Culture in Peterborough, has applied for funds to undertake a documentary film project focused on the Nubanusit Brook in southwest New Hampshire. Entitled Flood Waters on the Nubanusit, the documentary will tell the story of the devastating Flood of 1936 and Hurricane of 1938 – the region’s two most significant natural disasters – that wreaked havoc along the Nubanusit and Contoocook Rivers. Townspeople in Antrim, Bennington, Harrisville, Hancock, and Peterborough over the age of 80 have vivid memories of automobiles washed downstream, flooded homes, toppled trees, and fires raging in downtown Peterborough streets. Flood Waters on the Nubanusit will be modeled on the popular Reflections
film series produced by the Keene Public Library and its partners in 2010. During September 2013, the 75th anniversary of the Hurricane, I will facilitate a stories circle designed to introduce the Nubanusit project and gather initial recollections. I will also conduct follow-up interviews with selected individuals and will supervise the writing of a script for this new documentary. History professor Dr. Melinda Jetté, who supervised student research on film topics and provided expertise to ensure historical accuracy and adherence to best practices in oral history procedures throughout the Reflections series, will serve as internship coordinator and historian on the Nubanusit project. The critical role of film producer will be filled by Dr. Douglas Challenger, the producer of the recent 60-minute documentary film focused on the history of Franklin Pierce University. In order to

The Walter Peterson Forum for Civil Discourse: An Exercise in Deliberative Democracy here was no one who epitomized the spirit of civil discourse more than the late Walter Peterson. He served as governor of New Hampshire from 1969-1973. In 1975 he became President of Franklin Pierce University, a position he held for 20 years. After his retirement, he continued to be involved in public affairs and was widely respected for his efforts to bridge across partisan divides. Quite simply, he was a voice of reason.
dialogue among individuals and groups with diverse perspectives, the New England Center for Civic Life, and the Monadnock Center for History and Culture in Peterborough, have created The Walter Peterson Forum for Civil Discourse. The forum is designed to give the Franklin Pierce community and residents of the Monadnock region opportunities to engage in civil, honest, and thoughtful conversations about the pressing issues of our time.
Today, more than ever it seems, we need to reaffirm our commitment to civil and respectful public discourse. To honor Walter Peterson and foster open and honest
The theme for the inaugural year is the United States Constitution. The fall and spring sessions will each open with a keynote address, followed several weeks
later by deliberative forums. Deliberative dialogues are not debates, nor are they casual or superficial conversations. They involve reasoning together and working through possibly conflicting choices in an effort to reach some common understandings. Because it is important for all participants to have the opportunity to actively engage in deliberation, each forum is limited to 20 participants. In the fall, the focus will be on better understanding the Constitution's historic context. During the spring session, our attention will turn to the Bill of Rights and its role in contemporary America.

Athletics Men's Ice Hockey's Jaymie Harrington The Road to Becoming a Leader n the waning seconds of the Franklin Pierce men's ice hockey Northeast-10 Conference semifinal victory over Southern New Hampshire last winter, Athletics Director Bruce Kirsh '71 made his way around the rink toward the team's locker room to congratulate Head Coach Jaymie Harrington. When any of the teams on the Rindge campus had a monumental win, Kirsh made it a habit of personally congratulating the respective head coach with a handshake and a pat on the back. As Kirsh inched his way closer to the locker room, Harrington saw him coming and sprinted over to meet him. This time, however, no handshakes were given. The two men reached out and gave each other giant bear hugs with several hard pats on the back. Yes, it was a huge win for Harrington and the men's ice hockey program; the Ravens were tasting post-season success for the first time in history. But it was much more than that. The victory and the resulting trip to the conference championship game was the culmination of four years of hard work by both men to put the date of Jan. 13, 2009, behind them. It was four years of the athletics director never giving up on the head coach
Franklin Pierce University fall 2013
By Doug DeBiase, Director of Athletic Communications
and providing valuable guidance and leadership. And four years of the head coach taking a professionally low moment, looking deep into himself, listening intently to the advice offered, and making the necessary adjustments to become the well-rounded leader he has proven to be today. "I can't say for sure, but things could have been different if there was another athletics director in that chair," said Harrington. "Bruce Kirsh didn't cast me aside. He took the time to work with me, not just on a coaching level, but on a personal level as well. He's been like a father to me."
January 13, 2009 Jaymie Harrington's intensity and passion for the sport of ice hockey is evident anytime someone speaks with him. Those traits served Harrington well as a player; he played in more than 100 games in the United States Hockey League (the top junior hockey league in the U.S.) before going on to play collegiately at the Division I level for Iona. When the school dropped the program in 2003, he played the remainder of his career at Canisius. Harrington landed the assistant coach's job at Franklin Pierce in 2007 following his graduation from Canisius. After just one
year on the job, Harrington was elevated to the position of head coach. Bruce Kirsh saw in Harrington a young man driven to become a successful head coach in his chosen sport. In fact, Harrington was no different from Kirsh when he was handed the reigns of the men's basketball program in 1977, just six years after he had graduated from Franklin Pierce. "His passion, not just for the sport of ice hockey, but to be a good coach was evident right from day one," Kirsh said. "He was fiery and had a vision for the program, but at the same time we both knew he needed to control his intensity and funnel it down the right avenues." Kirsh knew those same traits could come back to haunt Harrington as a coach if not channeled properly. Sadly for both men, that is exactly what happened in a 4-1 home loss to Saint Michael's on Jan. 13, 2009. The game that night featured a lot of aggressive play by both sides. Harrington felt that player safety was being jeopardized by the lack of calls from the referees, especially in the way his goalie was taking several charges from the opposition. The rough play continued, and Harrington had had enough and began arguing with the referees. He was quickly ejected from the game, but he did
not stop yelling. The arguing continued and grew in intensity as he left the bench area. Before Harrington knew it, security was escorting him from the arena.
What to Do? Bruce Kirsh was not in attendance for the St. Mike's game, so when he got a call informing him of what had happened, myriad thoughts and emotions ran through his mind. He was on his way to the NCAA Convention when the news broke to him, so his conversations with Harrington were over the phone. Kirsh, as anyone close to him can attest, does not mince words and is straight to the point. He spoke to Harrington about his disappointment in his actions and stressed
that the coach understand the gravity of the issue. Harrington was allowed to speak as well, to give his side of the story. "We talked â€“ mostly him â€“ but I still didn't know what the final outcome was going to be," Harrington said. "Bruce was brutally honest, and some of things he said were tough to hear, but I knew he had to say them, and I knew I had to listen, even though the conversation was a tough one to have." The conversation ended and the outcome was clear. Harrington would not be relieved of his duties, but he was suspended for a week. The assistant coaches would run the practices and coach the team during games, while a senior staff member from the athletics department would oversee their handling
of the squad. The two men would revisit the situation when Kirsh returned from the convention and Harrington returned from his suspension. After Harrington returned to the school, Kirsh laid out a course of action; he would serve as a mentor to the young coach to avoid a repeat of the situation in the future. "My job as an athletic director is not to just cast people aside who make a mistake," said Kirsh, who held roles as an assistant coach, head coach, athletics director, and Vice President for a combined total of 40 years at Franklin Pierce. "My job is to also provide guidance and leadership and to help my coaches grow and evolve, not just in the profession, but as people. I was given the chance to be a head coach at a
young age, and I was fortunate to receive a lot of guidance from then (Franklin Pierce) President Walter Peterson. He was invaluable in helping me to grow as a leader and that's the approach I've taken with any of my coaches."
Success: Coaching & Life The two men agreed to a weekly meeting on Tuesday afternoons. There would not be much hockey talk, but rather coaching lessons on dealing with stress, players, referees, growth, and maturity. The meetings not only covered athletics, but also life. Harrington's longtime girlfriend (now wife), Emilie, was working and living in Canada, which was stressful for him. "It was rough at that particular time, and it still is today, not having her around all the time," Harrington said. "I typically keep stuff to myself, but she seems to have a way of knowing what I'm thinking and ultimately getting it out of me. She is my best friend and biggest supporter, so naturally I missed not having her there. We would talk on the phone, but it's different when the person isn't there next to you." That's where the life conversations came in during those Tuesday meetings. When Bruce Kirsh was that young coach building the men's basketball program in the 70s and 80s, he too, was pulled away from his family at times. The two men understood where the other was coming from. "Bruce really became a father figure to me," Harrington said. "Sometimes the meetings wouldn't be long, but he would always ask how I was doing. Those little things are actually big things." Harrington took the talks to heart, and as the two men continued to meet, the coach was growing and the ice hockey program was growing with him. "Harry worked his butt
Franklin Pierce University fall 2013
off through those years," said a modest Kirsh. "He did all the work. I just talked with him." Franklin Pierce hosted the first Northeast-10 playoff game in program history at the end of the 2008-09 season, and then posted a school-record for wins in a single season in 2009-10, while also hosting a second consecutive playoff game. The Ravens continued to set records in 2010-11; they produced a new program mark for single-season wins, finished third in the conference regular season standings (the highest finish in program history), and once again hosted a playoff game. Harrington was not just growing as a bench boss, but also as a leader off the ice. He handled player discipline problems with swift, decisive action. Players that did not want to conform to his vision for the program, both on and off the ice, were dismissed and replaced with ones that wanted to take the program to the next threshold, which was post-season success. Players that had made mistakes but were working to get back into good standing were ones that he personally met with to serve as a mentor. Harrington keeps a copy of the box score from that Saint Michael's game in his office and will show it to players he works with. It is to serve not merely as a reminder of that night, but as a visual aid into how someone can go from making a mistake to fixing it through hard work. "The box score illustrates that mistakes can be made," Harrington said. "But more importantly, the success this program has had since shows that through hard work you can rise above them. The players, current and past, have made this program
grow throughout the last several years. I've learned a lot from them, and hopefully they've taken a lot away from me. That's why I will defend my players when needed. As I said before, I will always defend my players until the day I'm done coaching." Mark Gibbons, a former player in the Ravens men's ice hockey program, never played for Harrington. But now, Mark is a high school coach, and has worked closely with his alma mater, sending several of his players on to play in Rindge. "What Jaymie has done with the Franklin Pierce program is amazing," Gibbons said. "It's a recognized program in New England, and a lot of people in the hockey community are impressed with what he has done. I've sent several players to play for him, and I stay in contact with each guy and they rave about how the program is a real positive in their college experience. Jaymie is an honest guy who doesn't pull any punches, and the players respect that." As the program continued to rise in stature, and Harrington continued progressing into a strong leader, the Tuesday afternoon meetings became less frequent and ceased altogether in the fall of 2011. "Jaymie had grown and it was remarkable to see," Kirsh said. "I always let him know my door was open, but he didn't need to hear from me weekly." In fact, Kirsh was so proud of Harrington's transformation that when the Athletic Department decided to form a leadership committee of student-athletes in the summer of 2012, Harrington was one of two head coaches selected to lead the panel. "I was very honored to be a part of the program," Harrington said. "It meant a lot to me that Bruce put that much trust in me to lead a very important initiative."
"How About that Win?" As Jaymie Harrington and Bruce Kirsh finished their bear hug following the playoff win over Southern New Hampshire, Harrington gave a fist pump and shouted out, "How about that win?" Kirsh congratulated him once again and made his way back out to the entrance of the rink so Harrington could be alone to celebrate the victory with his players and family. Harrington spoke to his team in the locker room after the game and congratulated them on all they had accomplished. He told the players to enjoy it, and then they would get back to work on focusing for the next NE-10 championship matchup at Saint Anselm. "The instant the final horn sounded I said to myself, 'All right, it's time to get ready for Saint Anselm,'" Harrington said.
While the players whooped and yelled in the locker room, Harrington went out to offer thanks to family and friends for coming to the game and offering support. He left the rink and got in his car to drive home. He allowed himself to stop thinking about Saint Anselm for a moment, and started to focus on all the players who had come through the program during his watch who had helped the program reach this point, through all the highs and lows they had gone through together. "Anyone who has ever played for me in this program has a right to share a piece of this win," Harrington said. "Like myself, all of those players have gone through their own ups and downs, but they never quit and kept fighting back. We had lost home playoff games for three straight years. A lot of the seniors on this year's team were a part of those losses and they
could have packed it in, but they didn't. That's what this program has been built upon. I hope everyone is enjoying this win as much as I am." Kirsh, too, was driving home from the rink and allowed himself to drift off into thought. He was happy for the program, the student-athletes, and the school. But what made the win even more special was that it was Harrington who guided the team to it. "He deserved that win more than anyone," Kirsh said. "I've been fortunate to work with a lot of great coaches, and Jaymie has the makings of being one. His experiences and his hard work have made him not just a better coach, but a better person. He has a great support system in place with his wife and family. I can't stress how proud I am of him."
Athletics Announces New Additions to Women's Sports Women's Bowling, Women's Golf, and the Enhancement of Women's Rowing By Doug DeBiase, Director of Athletic Communications
ranklin Pierce University President Dr. James F. Birge and Director of Athletics Bruce Kirsh '71 announced in early May that the institution will add the sports of women's golf and women's bowling to its varsity athletics lineup beginning in the 2014-15 school year. In addition to those new offerings, the University will also enhance the sport of women's rowing beginning in that same year. With the addition of the two sports and the enhancement of women's rowing, the University plans to create participation opportunities for approximately 40 new female student-athletes. Franklin Pierce will now feature 13 varsity athletic programs for female student-athletes; in addition to the new golf and bowling programs, there are basketball, cross country, field hockey, ice
hockey, lacrosse, rowing, soccer, softball, tennis, track & field, and volleyball.
Womenâ€™s Golf Franklin Pierce is reinstituting women's golf, after sponsoring the sport 13 years ago. In the past 10 years, however, more than 80 other Division II institutions have added the sport of women's golf to their programs, raising the total to more than 170 competing schools. Franklin Pierce becomes the fourth school in the Northeast-10 Conference to sponsor the sport, joining Le Moyne College, Merrimack College, and Southern New Hampshire University, which announced its sponsorship of the sport last March.
The NE-10 does not currently offer a women's golf championship, because conference bylaws mandate that a minimum of six schools sponsor the sport. However, the Eastern College Athletic Conference offers a Division II/III championship tournament during the spring season. Eleven other Division II and Division III schools in the New England region offer women's golf at the varsity level. Franklin Pierce joins Southern New Hampshire and Dartmouth as the three colleges in the state of New Hampshire to offer the sport at varsity status.
Women's Bowling Since the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) officially offered a championship opportunity in the sport of women's bowling in 2004, the sport has grown at a rapid rate with 63 schools across all levels (Divisions I, II, and III) sponsoring the sport. The NCAA conducts a National Collegiate Championship in the sport, which means that Franklin Pierce would compete against schools from all three NCAA classifications if it were to advance to the national finals. A significant number of the schools that sponsor women's bowling are located in the Mid-Atlantic/Northeast corridor of the country, including Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. Just as it does with women's golf, the ECAC offers a championship opportunity in bowling during the winter season for the Northeast schools. The sport has seen interest and growth at the high school level, especially in New England where a pair of states, New Hampshire
Franklin Pierce University fall 2013
and Connecticut, have created high school state championships. The New Hampshire Interscholastic Athletic Association introduced a co-ed bowling championship in 2012, and currently 12 high schools throughout the state compete in the sport.
Women's Rowing Franklin Pierce currently sponsors the sport of women's rowing. The program competes in several prestigious races throughout the Northeast, including the New England Rowing Championships and the Dad Vail Regatta in Philadelphia. By enhancing the program, Franklin Pierce will increase its roster size, thus providing more opportunities for female student-athletes. Head Coach Jeff Allen will continue to lead the rowing program through its enhancement. Allen, who also serves as a professor of criminal justice at the school, guided the Ravens to an NCAA regional ranking in the spring of 2012.
Historical Highlights Franklin Pierce Athletics boasts a rich history of women's intercollegiate varsity sports. Some of the highlights of women's sports at the school include five NCAA Division II women's soccer national championships, three other NCAA title game appearances, three NCAA East Regional titles won by women's basketball from 2008-10, 31 all-time NCAA Division II Tournament appearances (including volleyball and women's basketball in the 2012-13 season), 22 conference titles, and six female student-athletes who have earned national player-of-theyear recognition in their respective sport.

arle Nightingale once said, "All you need is the plan, the road map, and the courage to press on to your destination." He may have left out one thing – the right passengers to make it an interesting ride! It's true that putting the right plan in place, designing the perfect road map to navigate your way there, and having the courage to forge ahead are all key elements to a successful journey, but if Scott Martin '15 knows one thing, it's that you cannot do it alone. Not only can the right passengers on any journey through life make it more enjoyable, but they can also help with the road blocks and unmarked forks that can throw any journey off course. Scott's higher education journey began when he joined the Class of 2015. He became a residence hall Community Assistant (CA) in his sophomore year. CAs engage students into the University community and serve as mentors and a support network for their residents. Life was good until last December, when Scott hit a serious bump in the road; a very difficult family situation took him by surprise and meant that continuing his college education might have to come to an abrupt stop. But Scott found a second job in the Student Financial
Services office and applied for as many scholarships as possible. "At one point, an amount of just over $2,000 was going to determine if I could stay or not," Scott said. "But with the help of the scholarship funding, I was able to continue at Franklin Pierce." Scott's natural ability to stay solution-oriented during times of turmoil steadied his course, and his willingness to ask for help when needed displayed an understanding of the importance of how a true community works. In the fall, Scott will move to Lakeview to serve as a CA in an upperclassman wing. He is enrolled in the Business Plus Program, in which motivated students have the opportunity to complete an undergraduate business degree in three years, and a graduate degree one year later. In May 2015, Scott will complete his Bachelor's degree, followed by his M.B.A. in 2016. Scott has learned how important it is not to let the road blocks dishearten him, how to examine each new route with optimism and courage, and how to remember that it is not just the final destination, but the journey and the people you meet along the way that matter. It is imperative that alumni of the University who have journeyed on the same road that current
students now travel consider supporting their alma mater philanthropically. Every dollar makes a difference and can mean that another student is able to remain until degree completion. Scott understands how important it is to be able to navigate life when thrown off course. And with the help of those who supported scholarships last year, Scott's journey at Franklin Pierce is back on track.
Academics New Maymester Program ast spring, Franklin Pierce University introduced the Maymester program to students interested in studying abroad for a short period of time, either because their schedules prohibit an entire semester of study abroad, or because they prefer a shorter period of time abroad for personal reasons. Two different Maymester program courses and accompanying trips which took place May 20 through June 7, offered students unique opportunities for brief but fascinating journeys of discovery to either England or Ireland. Prof. Mary Ann Gaal taught an "International Management" class which culminated with a trip to London to observe and understand the complexities of tying cultures together through business. "The students had a great experience observing the similarities and differences between London and the United States," says Prof. Gaal. "They were excited and impressed with the two businesses we visited and were able to talk with two multinational companies, one which was started by an American that has expanded overseas. Everyone remarked that they enjoyed the trip, found it to be a great learning experience, and would recommend it to others."
Franklin Pierce University fall 2013
"The Role & Influence of Leisure on the Culture & Commerce of Ireland" was taught online by Prof. Rodney Blackman, followed by a trip to Ireland. Visits were made to the Cliffs of Moher, Kilmainham Goal, Giant's Causeway, Guinness Storehouse, and St. Patrick's Cathedral. Prof. Blackman gave an enthusiastic report of the class trip upon their return. He and six students visited the four largest cities in Ireland â€“ Dublin, Cork, Belfast, and Limerick â€“ and spent several days in the countryside visiting castles, tracing the tales of the history of Ireland (as well as chasing leprechauns), tasting delicious Irish traditional food, and touring the bold and beautiful sights of the island. "We forged what is expected to be an enduring relationship with University College Dublin," says Prof. Blackman, "our fine academic counterpart in Dublin, where the student experience is the focus, not unlike our approach here at Franklin Pierce." By all counts, Maymester was a success and will be built on each spring.
Not Everyone’s First Year Seminar Intentional Venom: Making Meaning of School Shootings By Dr. Donna Decker, Prof. of English, Honors Director
n an odd synchronicity, the very last class meeting of our fall 2012 First Year Seminar, “Intentional Venom: Making Meaning of School Shootings,” took place while the Newtown, Conn., school shooting was happening– December 14, 2012. What had been theoretical and historical and contained to our classroom became all too real. Days later, during our final exam – a fish-bowl dialogue format – we had the gruesome opportunity to bring our analytical skills to bear on a still-raw school massacre. Within days of the killings, we opened up our formerly private course website to the press in order that a USA Today reporter might write about our work (an article that quickly became syndicated). Just days later, I was interviewed on NHPR’s “The Exchange” about the killings and the course. Having taught the seminar twice has proved to be a protean endeavor. We Skype with Dave Cullen, author of Columbine, and Jackson Katz, creator of the film Tough Guise. We investigate our own campus security to better understand our institution’s disaster plan. We interview the local police to learn about their protocol regarding school shootings. One student traveled to Colorado over her winter break and returned with a PowerPoint presentation of photos and music, offering it to me after the course was over – not for a grade, but because the Columbine story changed her in significant ways. Primarily, our class plunges into the details of four massacres: Columbine, Virginia Tech, the Montreal Massacre, and the Amish Schoolhouse shooting. We deconstruct the scholarship, the literature, and the media reportage. We ask questions. We seek answers. We conclude that there are more questions than answers regarding school shootings. There is, for example, no profile of a school shooter. The one characteristic they have in common is that virtually all are male. We ask why this is so.
The foremost learning outcomes of the course are inquiry and analysis, and information literacy. The content area of the course lends itself to easy buy-in; students always want to know more, and they want to know what is accurate. They wrestle with the scholarship. They rage against the paucity of resolutions offered by the government, academics, and experts. They encounter – often for the first time – scholars who disagree and lay down the gauntlet of contending data. They move from media myths about school shootings (shooters are bullied, bullies, Goths, mentally ill, etc.) to an ability – and a willingness – to scrutinize the media they so uncritically swallowed wholesale upon entering the classroom on the first day. The following scenario illustrates what was one of many memorable teachable occasions. Emerson graduate Danny Ledonne created the video game Super Columbine Rampage RPG, a role playing game in which players act as the two Columbine shooters and mount points by shooting classmates. Ledone had agreed to Skype with our class, but my students voted to decline the offer after intense class discussion and reading about the game and its controversies. The decision was not frivolous, but rather mindful – and morally potent. I was inspired to create this course after spending the last five years writing a book on the 1989 Montreal Massacre. The book is nearing completion. The course is in its infancy. Together, my students and I have discovered that a topic that engenders horror, fear, and media frenzy (and sadly, irresponsibility), not only motivates inquiry and analysis, critical thinking, and information literacy, but fosters empathy for a world in which humans – too often – catapult the human out of humanity.

Alumni Calling all alumni! y name is Christina Young, and I am the Alumni Relations Director at Franklin Pierce University. I joined the Institutional Advancement team in October 2012, and it has been an amazing ride celebrating the 50th Anniversary. This momentous year has allowed me to meet so many of you in person, others on the phone, and many by email. (I hope that at the very least you receive our monthly newsletter. If not, make sure to email me so we can update your contact information.) But as we begin to wrap up the 50th Celebration, I decided it was time we get out on the road and meet more of you in your home towns! The goal of the Pierce Proud Tour is to focus the efforts of our External Relations Committee on planning events that are regionally targeted where many alumni are living. This does not mean to say we will not try to get to areas where there are fewer alumni â€“ but to start, we will aim for where we are heavily saturated. This tour is special, as my goal is to get out and find out why our alumni are "Pierce Proud." As Franklin Pierce continues to grow, it is imperative that we dig down to our roots and stay true to who we are. As Franklin Pierce alumni, I hope you will take a moment to tell us why you are Pierce Proud on our website at: www.franklinpierce.edu/pierceproud, and check out the tour dates in your area! If you do not see an event near you, but would like to work with our office on scheduling one, send me an email or give me a call. I hope to see many of you at the Alumni Reunion Weekend on October 4-6. The 50th Anniversary Committee has done an amazing job over the last year and will be wrapping up many festivities during the weekend in partnership with the Alumni Reunion Weekend Committee. Our bags are packed and we're ready to go, so we'll see you soon!

eghan Porcelli ’14 knows the value of internships and how to make the most of them. This Management major, with a double minor in Marketing and Public History and a certificate in Women in Leadership, had her first internship while still in high school as a marketing service assistant at State Farm. One of the outcomes of that experience, Meghan says, is that she “gained perspective on the workforce, communication, and how to be resourceful in a dynamic environment” – qualities that have undoubtedly served her in good stead at Franklin Pierce, where she has had the opportunity to experience various other internships. A Public History requirement at Franklin Pierce is to do an internship,

so once again, Meghan found herself with another interesting experience as an Educations and Programs intern at the Mattatuck Museum in Waterbury, Conn., during her 2012 spring semester. Meghan designed an exhibit featuring the work and businesses of the first generation of Jewish immigrants in Waterbury – pillars in the community at the time. She extracted, summarized, and organized oral histories for the Jewish Oral History Exhibit and located archival photographs. The exhibit was displayed in the main entrance at the Walzer Family Jewish Community Campus for the Jewish Federation of Western Connecticut, which houses the Federation, B'nai Israel
(a reform synagogue), and Beth El (a conservative synagogue). During her 2013 spring semester, Meghan interned for the U.S. Marshals Service in the Human Resources Department in the Operations Staffing Department in Washington, D.C. She simultaneously studied through the Washington Center; her “International Business and Global Trade” class was completed at the Washington Center, and “Business in Society” was done online through Franklin Pierce with Prof. Mary Ann Gaal. Meghan worked five days per week, full time at her internship (for which she received 15 credits for the semester). She cites
the New Hampshire State Society of DC as instrumental in enabling the internship; they awarded Meghan an academic stipend of $1,500, which helped her to participate in many programs and activities. Much of Meghan’s responsibilities at her U.S. Marshals Service internship revolved around processing applications for a Deputy position that they had opened; approximately 34,000 applicants applied in the first 24 hours for 48 Class seats. Meghan helped organize incoming application information, including medical, physical fitness, service, and educational records to determine who was eligible to be considered for a class. She also helped coordinate the intern program, including scheduling speakers from the FBI, State Department, Secret Service, Capitol Police, National Institute of Justice, Office of Violence Against Women, U.S. Parole Commission, Environment and Natural Resource Division, Airforce JAG, Institute of Peace, and many others. Program trips were arranged by Meghan to the Pentagon, CIA Headquarters, Fort Myer's Military Police, Arlington Cemetery, and more. She spoke with pride about playing a role with
the U.S. Marshals Service because they “protect our judicial system, which means they’re protecting our freedoms.” But Meghan did not stop there! When her spring internship was over, she leapt right into another one for the summer at the Smithsonian Institute for their Office of Human Resources: Compensation and Benefits. Meghan created FAQs for their Intranet and reformatted and updated content for outreach presentations to all of the Smithsonian Institution's units. She attended many informative meetings, such as the Department of Labor Interagency Meeting, the Federal Retirement Thrift Investment Board, and Worker's Compensation Training for Smithsonian Employees. A perk of the internship was having the opportunity to attend several intern events, including visits to museums before they opened and special intern tours and talks by Smithsonian professionals.
First day with the U.S. Marshals Service.
Meghan reflected on the importance of doing internships and says, “A lot of people don’t transition well from college life into a career. With interning, you get exposed to careers you may have never even
We think this Franklin Pierce student will fare very well at whatever career she chooses. We look forward to hearing about her successes in the years to come!
heard of before. You may learn the ‘thinking’ behind a subject in class, but don’t fully understand it until you put it into practice. I’m more hands on, so internships are really good for me.” She cites the tremendous networking opportunities in doing an internship and feels confident that these experiences will help her get a job when she graduates.

College of Graduate & Professional Studies
New Things Happening at CGPS! oug Southard, PhD, MPH, PA-C, who has been guiding the CGPS Physician Assistant program since 2012, took on the responsibilities of Dean of the College of Graduate & Professional Studies on July 1, 2013. Dr. Southard is excited about his new role and how he can help Franklin Pierce in its mission. "The most important outcome of our work,” says Dr. Southard, "is to help students enhance their knowledge and skills in ways that make a difference." In reflecting on the educational offerings of CGPS, his vision is to create learning opportunities that recognize: • the globalization of the human community and its consequent opportunities for advancement, as well as its increased competition for jobs and resources, • that collaboration and teamwork are key to success in a competitive world, • the diversity of perspectives is highly valued, but there must also be a search for common ground, • that there must be a focus on solving problems, not merely making the symptoms go away. "I look forward to working with Dean Kerry McKeever and others to find ways to further integrate the activities of CGPS
Franklin Pierce University fall 2013
and the College at Rindge," says Dr. Southard. "One example of this is the further development of pre-professional programs in the health sciences. In addition, there is opportunity to offer professional programs in creative ways to meet a market need, such as our recent success in offering the RN-BSN program onsite to practicing nurses at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center and Wentworth-Douglass Hospital. This is a program we have the expertise to provide and the creativity to offer in a way that meets the needs of both the learner and the employer." Coincident with Dr. Southard taking on his new role as Dean was the move to newly configured space in the historic Jefferson Mill building in Manchester to better accommodate the needs of the CGPS programs. The new space has been strategically designed for CGPS and is customized with state-of-the-art laboratory facilities for the Doctor of Physical Therapy students, as well as new classroom, office, and study space. The flexibility of break-out space in the new facility allows for greater engagement of the community because forums and seminars can now be hosted there. The new Manchester facility has also become the new home to classes and offices previously held in Concord. Several institutions of higher education are clustered near the new Franklin Pierce at Manchester center, where opportunities for recreation and socialization as part of a higher education community can now be enjoyed.
