50% of students gave Fitchburg State University 4 stars overall.
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
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.
