5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Although the campus isn't placed in the best neighborhood, I still feel extremely safe walking around because the campus security is always available and there are assistance poles located all around the campus if you need security to go get you if your don't feel safe.

Campus Housing: There are two housing halls that are considered the best on campus but one of them is definitely better than the other. The hall that I live in is great because we don't have to worry about checking in because it's just considered to be a giant house which is why a lot of students like it. The down side is that: they aren't that clean, closet space is extremely tight, and the rooms are average. Oh, and we aren't able to put our beds up high to place chairs or other lounging items underneath. The other dorm makes mine look terrible because it's much cleaner, the rooms are larger (as well as the bathrooms), and the closets are about 2 or 3x larger than mine.

Greek Life: Personally I don't pay too much attention to the Greek life on campus, but from what I see it looks like they do a lot of things to raise money for different organizations as well as volunteer work.

4 College Junior

Athletics: The athletics at my school are great when it comes to the teams that are doing the best at the time, but other than that students won't really go to support the school at games if they don't have the best winning streak. Personally I love the recreation center at my school because it has all the basics to workout and a variety of weight machines to use. We also have access to the track, and basketball court. There is also a separate room where you could dance, stretch, do some weighted exercises or yoga.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Although I have only attended my school for a semester so far, I still love it. All of the students and faculty there are extremely nice and always trying to help out. We have a lot of fun activities always going on around campus. For me, this is the perfect school because the campus is small which makes it easier to have more time to work with the professors one-on-one in class.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: There's a police station in campus so they aren't too far away if a situation were to occur.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Overall the courses I've taken for my major have provided me with a plethora of information and I'm very happy about that.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I definitely think that if you put your all into what degree you're pursuing,you'll go far in the working world.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The social atmosphere on campus is pretty good, it's kind of small so everyone usually sees someone they know within a short amount of time.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Altogether there are 5 different sororities and fraternities on our campus and they're pretty popular.

4 College Junior

Athletics: The equipment for excercise and sports activities are in really good shape and used by athletes and non-athletes

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love the community at school and the size of the campus.

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.

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.
