Fitchburg State University Top Questions

What do you consider the worst thing about Fitchburg State University? Why?


I would have considered the location to be the worst thing about my school. FSU is situated in a low income city with a moderate amount of crime and poverty. Potentially the city has improved since my period of attendance.


unsure have not attended classes


The surrounding area is not so great, and there is not much to do in a close relative distance. Never go out alone.


The worst thing about my school would probably be the parking. The main parking lot is a big walking distance from the main campus but there are shuttles that go back and forth during certain hours of the day. Also, when there is inclement weather due to snow, the school only informs you of the parking lots that are closed and not of the ones you may park in during the storm. This is frustrating because only certain people can park in specific parking lots based on whether they are a commuter, resident, or freshman.


I just started last week and so far, in my experience there really is nothing that I can find wrong with this school.


The worse thing is the area that surrounds the campus.


I don't find anything bad about my school because, i love it


The surrounding area, it's very dangerous and sketchy at night


The worst thing about my school is probably the area. I love the school and the campus but the area just off-campus is not the best. I tend to avoid leaving campus at night.


I personally think the worst thing about Fitchburg State is the surrounding community. Fitchburg used to be a mill town so there is a lot of low income housing which has recently (as of the 70's and 80's) become attractive to gangs and drug using/dealing groups. The college has made a lot of progress by buying out most of the "bad houses" where most of the gang members lived. They built two new dorms and a state of the art rec center where the worst parts of the city once stood.
