I enjoyed the small classes and getting to know my professors. CASA is very helpful for those students who are struggling with their courses.

In the science department I do wish there had been more hands on opportunities to work in the laboratory and doing outside class projects. Volunteer opportunities through the school is only once a month on a Saturday- tough for a working student. Commuters are not as informed about school events, but I do believe it has gotten better since I was there.

We do appreciate our sports at FSU. I myself was one of a four leaders in a marketing campaign sponsored by my school to provide awareness of sports of our choosing that we believed could rally a bigger audience. Our campaign was also supported by local business and bigger organizations such as Google, Inc who provided many helpful tips on how to successfully run our campaign. All in all we were quite successful in bringing students as well as the public to come and enjoy our teams who try so hard to do the best they can for our school!
My experience at Framingham State University was enjoyable overall. The classes and professors were suitable and provided valuable learning material, connections, and advice for students. The programs at the university were well-rounded and provided many resources for students' success.
