Athletics: I am focused on my classes so i don't really partake in the athletics

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I am able to get hands on training on model human's allowing me to actually feel like a nurse. This allows me to not only know the mental knowledge but the actions itself. The support from the teachers are wonderful because when they see us struggling they are there to help.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Dorms are ok at FSU. I've only lived in Russell Towers and it is not the cleanest it could be. My room is nice though, there is enough space for my roommate and I. All of the dorm building are very close to the class buildings, dining hall, and the library.

Health & Safety: Campus Police are great. You always see a campus police car driving around or a campus police officer walking around. If you do not feel safe walking around you can call a campus police officer and they will go and pick you up and drive you to where you want to go. The buildings on campus are safe so no one who does not go here can't get in.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: All of the professors that I've had have been amazing. They're all very kind and there when you need them. I know I can always count on being able to talk them whether it be via email or at their office hours. They know what they're teaching and that makes it so much easier to learn.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are always alumni coming back to the school to talk to students about how they are doing with their jobs and their experience here at FSU. We always get emails about job opportunities off campus that want learning students. There are multiple opportunities to get a job on campus too, every building has different jobs that are available.

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.
