“I was able to get a top-notch education at Fitchburg State which helped me compete in the workforce. The professors in my major pushed me to excel in class and also inspired me with their enthusiasm in lab.”

“Fitchburg State was one of the few colleges in the state that offered a construction program. The small classes and professors made it a very comfortable learning environment. The program was a great foundation for the work in the industry and developed my initial interest into a passion.”

“I started pursuing Business Administration but it wasn’t the right fit for me. The transition to a different major was easy and I discovered that it allowed me to explore my love for languages. I was even able to study abroad in Verona while still supporting my family.”
