Framingham State University Reviews
Campus is gorgeous, and the dorms are a vibe, but other than that, FSU leaves much to be desired. The food is nasty, and if you live on campus they force you into an expensive meal plan. I would rather get a nice micro fridge or mini fridge and buy my own groceries than eat in this dining hall. Classes are alright. Some of the professors in my major are wonderful, but there are some who definitely shouldn’t be teaching.
Also, the honors program sucks. Not many perks/events for the crap they put you through. They put pressure on you to take gen ed honors classes, which honestly distract from the really cool gen eds. And the thesis project won’t even help you when you graduate. Not worth the stress imo.
If a pandemic hadn’t wrecked my freshman year, I probably would’ve smartened up sooner and transferred out of here.
