4 College Junior

Overall Experience: As an English Major courses offered seems limited and difficult to find something suited for my field. Art classes are also highly limited and difficult to enter. Lottery for class selection seems strange and hard for students to get classes need for their majors and that fit their schedule. Professors also set strange class times. Class sizes are small which allow for individual student attention, and professors are diverse. Students do learn something from every course although it might not be what the student expected.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Internships are limited on campus, and internship process is very long and difficult. Career center is open to anyone even after graduation which helps quite a bit. Recruiting is very active on campus.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Don't feel 100% safe walking alone on campus, always carry a flashlight because campus is darkly light at night. Some of the call boxes were too spread out to allow for students to feel safe. Limited security personal around at night on campus.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Housing is nice, freshman housing has more active involvement with students then upper classmen. Dorms seem cramped and have little in the way of repairs or cleanliness. Laundry rooms can be difficult to access. Seems limited in the incorporation of handicap accessibility.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Not totally sure, Greek life is present on campus yet not a huge thing one way or the other. There are more societies then fraternities on campus.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Teams are difficult to join, sports teams seem exclusive. athletic facilities are very nice difficult to access (distance wise).

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Classes are interesting, professors have difficulty staying on topic yet always friendly. Classes are usually small. Professors are all from different backgrounds which keeps things interesting from each class.

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.

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.
