Fostering a sense of cultural appreciation is an important part of a university education and a vital ingredient for a thriving community. This season’s CenterStage events will feature national and international artists as well as collaborations with student and community groups. Our concerts, art exhibits, films, lectures and theatrical performances are a great resource for members of both our campus community and those who reside in the cities and towns of the region.

At Fitchburg State, our hope is that your desire for lifelong education also leads you to ponder other opportunities at the university. Encouraging such connections is a cornerstone of our mission, so consider taking a class, whether for credit or simply out of curiosity. Our goal is to both entertain and enlighten you.
