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!
I like Framingham State University. This school is a small school with mostly commuters. I like the transportation systems from the parking lots to the school, it is very convenient. I also like the professors at this university, they are all very accommodating and they really try their best so you can succeed. The campus is all relatively close together too, the farthest walk you have is five minutes, which isn't bad. The dining hall also accommodates for a lot of different health choices.
First of all, being a freshman, I do not know all there is to know about FSU, but so far, I know I made the right choice to take my education to FSU. It has been a great experience so far. The professors, overall, seem dedicated to the students, pushing them to succeed. One of my favorite things about school is the fitness classes that are offered; they are exciting and different all the while calorie burning. The food is also great at school, there is a great variety of options that are healthy and tasty. The only thing I can think that could improve the school, would be a food or snack bar in each dorm, if a student does not have time to eat at the dining hall, if the dining hall is closed, or the weather is difficult to walk in.
