Overall, I enjoy Framingham State University. It is boring to be there on the weekends. Framingham State has a large commuter population, so there are not a lot of people there on the weekends. The academics are good, but since going online because of the pandemic the quality of education has gone down.
I love it! One complaint I had initially was that it made it a bit hard for adult students going back to school. Each class meets 4 hours a week instead of 3 like most colleges, so you're almost guaranteed to need to be on campus every day. This makes it hard to be a full time student and work enough hours to get by.
In my opinion, Framingham State University is a good school, but there are still plenty of areas that need some form of improvement. Students who transfer in are often told that few, if any of their transfer credits will be accepted, there are never enough spaces for commuters, at least two of the dorms lack central air, making it nearly impossible to sleep through the scorching summer nights, and it's been said countless times that the wifi works as well as a car with four flat tires and no engine. However, the faculty are friendly, passionate, and keep regular office hours, the student health center offers flu shot clinics and counseling, both scheduled and walk-ins, to any and all, there are dozens of clubs and extracurricular activities that cater to every interest imaginable, and the students are friendly, diverse, intelligent, and most importantly, they know how to have fun.
In closing, Framingham State is far from the perfect school. The transfer policy is a mess, finding a parking spot often requires divine intervention, and the dorms can often feel like you're sleeping in the Sahara desert, but these faults are easily eclipsed by the ever-helpful faculty, abundance of clubs and activities, and friendly and fun loving student body, with the end result being one of the finest public colleges in the state of Massachusetts.
I miss college so much! FSU is definitely the school for you if you like small and comfortable. Due to the campus being on the smaller size, it is very easy to make friends and remain friends. There are a lot of fun campus activities and clubs to join also. Most of my professors were very accessible and would do anything to help you learn and graduate. There are also many on campus jobs which is a plus when you are trying to pay for tuition!

Framingham State College is my 2nd home.
The best thing about Framingham State college is that they anticipate the difficulties of the "real" world and use this to prepare a developed educational support for each student. This is most noticable through the general education requirements for each student. There are twelve catagories for students to complete in gen. ed. including world history, american history, art, social science, physical science, language, lab study, etc. This allows each student to recognize all aspects of education while still reaching for a personal major.
As a resident I feel that Framingham State lacks in retaining a student population during weekends. On weekdays, FSC is a vibrant campus full of students rushing to class, hanging out or meeting up with friends for quick bite with friends at one of the campus cafes. Unfortunately, this dynamic changes drastically on weekends. The majority of popular student hangouts (the juice bar, cyber cafe, commuter cafe, and even the library!) either reduce hours or close entirely during the weekend. With lack of activities on campus, it turns into a ghost town with the remaining students wandering around like zombies.
The lack of parking spaces available for commuters, and the distance from school to the resident parking area is the most frustrating thing about my school.
Framingham State is a very small campus. You have to like to stay low-key and know pretty much every face on campus. If you want a personalized realtionship with proffessors and not get lost in a class over 100 students, then Framingham State is the place for you.
If I had to brag, I would emphasise the small class sizes and the professors.
My classmates at FSC were always friendly and willing to help
They let the students have alot of say in what happens. Its the students who live and go to school here so alot of things such as, campus events and the campus life, are imfluenced and run by the students. They put the responisiblity in the hands of these young adults and guide them to success in these things. They make you feel included by hearing and applying what you want.
I wish I knew of the drinking policies of the school.
I believe that the type of person that should attend Framingham State is someone that is used to a small school and a sense community. Coming from a high schol that was made up of 180 students, this is the perfect size.
Framingham State University (formerly Framingham State College) is best known as the college attended by Christa McAuliffe, who would have been the first teacher in space had the Space Shuttle Challenger not broken apart.
