Framingham State University Reviews
FSU provides an engaging, yet quaint environment. An extremely diverse campus provides connections with people from all different backgrounds. The campus's small size limits its ability to host large events, but it still manages to fit in a surprising amount of gatherings in just one semester. The campus food really depends on the day, Sodexo can be a coin flip!
Framingham State University was the best educational decision I have made. Framingham State has small class sizes and faculty that work very hard to help their students succeed. Framingham State is a dry and smoke-free campus, which I like. The library is open late year-round to allow students to have a quiet place to work. The only issue that I had with Framingham State, was the Career Center. I once went to the Career Center to get help with my resume and finding a job. They were very unhelpful and only provided me with sites where I MIGHT be able to find a job. I learned that Framingham State focuses mainly on Business and Teaching jobs and is not well versed in Wildlife Biology/Ecology jobs. I think that the Career Center should help every student find a job. I highly recommend Framingham State for anyone looking for a State school that will help prepare you for the "real world."
Framingham State is a great school overall. There are some minor things that could be fixed. A major problem that happen during the 2017-2018 academic was acts of racism in two dorm buildings. Students had left notes on the doors of African American/ Black students dorm rooms. Not sure if the issue was ever solved on who wrote the notes, it kind of just died down. Another thing is that some of the equipment in the gym needs an upgrade. About 5 of the treadmills did not work. Academics wise the school is great. And depending on the major it seems like majority of professors are great at their job.
