Part of your college experience is getting involved. We encourage you to take advantage of the opportunities offered outside the classroom, whether you join a club, attend events, volunteer, or seek employment.
There are currently about 85+ active clubs and organizations on campus. They range from large, general organizations like the Student Government Association (SGA) and Fitchburg Activities Board (FAB), to smaller, more niche organizations like Quidditch club or Exercise and Sports Science club. Starting a new club is also always an option. Gymnastics club and the Ice Hockey club were both recently created in the past year.

Get involved, no matter who you are
Fitchburg State has three fraternities and three sororities on campus:
The Leadership Development program enhances students’ post-graduation marketability. We provide opportunities for students to work on their teamwork, communication, decision making, and organizational skills, to name a few. Some examples include a Emerging Leaders Retreat and the Falcon Certification Program. We also have a chapter of the National Society of Leadership and Success (NSLS) that students with a 2.7GPA or higher can take part in.
The Fitchburg Community Outreach Center (formerly the Volunteer Center) on campus is home to our Falcon Bazaar and Professional Clothing Closet. Here, students can “shop” (for free) for food/necessities and/or professional clothing for internships or interviews. We also offer a program called “Swipe it Forward” where students can donate one of their “guest” meal swipes to a student in need. You can access a list of local food pantries here. The FCOC also oversees multiple volunteer opportunities in the Fitchburg and surrounding areas.
Flock to the Weekend provides consistent, late-night programming to students at Fitchburg State University every Thursday night, and on occasional Friday and Saturday nights. Flock to the Weekend offers a variety of programming, such as social, entertainment, educational, cultural, creative, and recreational events. Programming is a collaborative effort between the Office of Student Development and student organizations.
Selected collaborators will receive at least $500 in funding towards their event. Organizations who submit the strongest, most promising social or interactive program will be awarded the collaboration.
Resident assistants, clubs and organizations request funding for your Flock to the Weekend events.
