This school is good for the price, howeverAverageBusiness - Management and Administration
This school is good for the price, however there are many commuters. The parking spaces are hard to find, and if there is an open space, usually someone has parked crooked so you cant park. The campus police are the worst; they hand out tickets left and right. If you want a degree and save money, go here. If you want a good college experience, choose somewhere else.

Not so bright
On Professor Jeffrey Johnson, Green Street, Northborough MA 01532; I enjoyed and learned a lot in from Jeff throughout my four years at Framingham State, and I credit his influence on me as to why I decided to work for the justice system starting in April 2013, He used very innovative ways in teaching the material. He was a very willingly helpful professor when it comes to giving outside-of-class help. In short: Professor Jeff Johnson, by far was the best teacher, adviser & person at Framingham State University. I had no interest in college my first year, but Jeff brought an energy and kindness to Communications and his students that was inspiring and generous. There is no doubt feel so much gratitude for the impact Jeff had on me.

I am close to finishing my first yearBrightComputer Science
I am close to finishing my first year at Framingham State and my major is computer science. Overall the food is okay, but the quality goes up when tours start, and goes down afterwards. The campus is very beautiful, but this is very irrelevant after spending more than a week here. Now the bad things, this school is EXTREMELY strict. If you plan on living on campus, just don't go here. There are bag checks every time you enter your dorm building, along with scanning your id. This is a very obnoxious procedure and it makes you feel cold, watched, and not trusted. The campus is dead on weekends. Most students are commuters or people that go home. Drinking and partying are almost non-existent here. People tend to assume that means going out of control and not getting any work done, but sometimes it would be nice to go out and be social, meet some new people. This along with the atmosphere, can make it hard to make friends if you are not very outgoing. The meal program here is designed to leave you hungry. I wish it were not true, but I can only eat once a day on the weekends. This is due to the hours of operation and the times you can swipe for a "meal." If I didn't want to sleep in then I could eat earlier, yes, but sleeping in is really a necessary thing. Overall, living here really does feel like living in a prison. It's very safe here, but its overwhelming. I would recommend this campus to a commuter student but not a resident student.
