Student Ratings

Student at This School - Grad Year 2015

Overall Rating

The school is under construction, it is difficult to get anywhere. PARKING IS TERRIBLE. Academics are okay, no memorable experiences. Tips for prospective students- only go here for the film program. NOTHING ELSE


Former Student - Last Attended 2011

Overall Rating

I think the school has very good academics and the professors are great. Things to do in Fitchburg are limited! Not a great area safety wise. I wouldn't feel safe walking after dark, especially alone.
