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!
Review Framingham State University
Framingham State University is situated on Route 9 in Framingham with convenient access to both the major expressway from Worcester, and the mass-pike, Interstate 90. The school itself is diverse and the campus is beautiful. The faculty and administration actually take the time to reach out to you if you put in the effort. Hard work does not go unrecognized, and the different department heads bring their own concepts to the table, bringing a more intimate knowledge to the subject making the classroom less formal and more realistic.
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.
