3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Every teacher is different, but most of my teachers have been helpful and dedicated to making sure every student passes.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: On campus jobs are in the middle of difficulty to find. Post college jobs and internships in the business department are always posted, but they do not really guarantee you will have something secure after you leave school. You end up doing a lot more work to make sure you have somewhere to go after school is over.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Campus Police are always there when you need them. The campus is very well guarded because the police station is on campus. Depending on the time you may even see police on bikes patrolling the campus, and there are plenty of safety spots in which you can press an emergency button if you are being attacked or followed.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Because of renovations, some dorms are nicer than others.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek life gets relatively involved student life by hosting events together, but for the most part, Greek life is pretty quiet on campus and they do much of there activities away or in there houses.

3 College Senior

Athletics: Our teams do very well in many of our competitions, but the school doesn't do a good job of advertising games to students and making sports life and campus life feel cohesive.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: There is something always happening on campus, but not many student always show up. The school has a lot of potential if more people tried to accept that FSU was a school they were happy with choosing, instead of dreaming of being somewhere else.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love that class sizes are small and each professor can work with you if you need it individually.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The value of a degree from this school will be great for someone like me who wants to continue on to graduate school and finally find job oppurtunities.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel generally safe on campus. Since I am a commuter, most of the time I am just going from one building to my car and back so it is not an issue walking alone.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life always tries to involved non-greeks in their social events and also encourages them to join.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Even if you don't attend many sporting events, there is always a way to find out how the sports teams are doing. School spirit is shown all through out campus with the Fitchburg State gear everyone wears! This shows that we support our school and all fans for sporting events rock out in the school colors.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It is not a bad school but I think what would make it wonderful is if there were more ways to get involved while I am studying there.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Professors are very engaged with their students and very passionate about their jobs. They show this passion during class and it helps to motivate the students.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I haven't had any experience with internships it job recruitment but I'm sure it is great because of how helpful the career center is.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I think the school is very supportive when it comes to the security and safety of the campus and students on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Residents halls are average the only downfall is that people constantly get charged for damages that they did not cause.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't pay much attention to Greek life.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I rarely pay a attention to the sports at my university but from what I see around campus sports are a big thing but it's not the only thing everyone talks on about it pays attention to.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My university is academically great. The professors really care about their students' success and they work hard to help them with whatever they need. Also, students are hardworking and even work together in order to succeed. If I had to choose my school all over again I definitely would.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Having visited Fitchburg state on several occasions with a friend I was able to see how many options there were and activities to get involved in. I specifically visited the science center and was ecstatic to think this is where I will be able to get involved in something I love finally.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I will come back for my masters however they need to make a lot of changes

2 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: the parties get out of control and the public has too much access to being on campus allowing students not to be safe

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: The application process is painless however if you do need help the ladies in the office do not help

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: I did not live on campus however i heard from others that it is not bad however not safe all the time.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Fitchburg is a small school with 3,500 undergraduates. The campus is thriving throughout the week but does die down on weekends. Many students are Massachusetts residents, and many students have cars on campus, which makes traveling easy on weekends. However, the first week or two of the school year is when many students stay on campus to make new friends.

The professors really do their best to get to know each and every student. They have open office hours when students can ask questions about papers or projects or just have conversations with their professors. Most classes are never larger than 25 students. The top majors on campus are communications, education, and nursing. The communications department is one of the top departments in the entire country. Each student in the department is required to complete an internship in the final semester before graduation.

Job placement after graduation can go either way for students, depending on how aggressive you are in the process, you could find some great opportunities right away, or you could be searching for a while. The Career Services office on campus is always willing to help students work on résumés, search for internships, apply for jobs during or after school, and prepare for job interviews.
