Roslyn Hodgkins and Elizabeth Jugilewicz presented about the perspective of Franklin Pierce Student by Rindge locals. They interviewed two women from Rindge, Karla MacLeod and Amy Raymond.

They also explained the beginnings of the university. The first dorms were constructed from a Chicken Coop. The first students reported that staying those dorms were the “coldest winter of their life.”

Hodgkins and Jugilewicz concluded that in Rindge, “there’s a lot here to offer.”  This was regarding opportunities in the community such as internships.

Johnny Busolin, Matt Bedard, Jaimy Felin and Cole Carreau are a part of the Business Minds Club and presented on the “Top of the Nock”. This company sells maple syrup.  They explained that this was the second business developed from the club, following the café in the library.  “We used all mistakes and issues turned into positives for the maple syrup business” said Matt.

The students described the process of creating the company and the syrup.  They worked together with their various skills to create a successful maple syrup company.  “I acquired my design skills for the label.” said Jaimy.

The last presentation was by Alison Stanlewicz about Emotional support animals. She explained the difference between service animals and emotional support animals.

Stanlewicz  also went into detail about how Franklin Pierce University is a lot stricter on emotional support animals than they are with service animals. Their policies seem to be more exclusive for service animals.

Alison did an immense amount of research on surveyed 50 individuals in 5 cohorts to discover the lack of education about Emotional Support Animals.  She concluded that she believes there should be more education on Emotional Support Animals and she hopes to do a talk at freshmen orientation to start the process.
