    Yes! It is extremely easy to meet new friends. While living on campus definitely helps for this, you can also meet new people when you are a commuter as well. Everyone is very welcoming and accepting. As for extra-curricular activieties, there are a ton. I am personally involved in sports. The coaches are great and very informative. After my freshman year, I am having a great experience. I am very much looking forward to my sophomore year!

    Fun every day, the students who organize the activities here, or FAB, are great and get comedians, magicians, and bands along with all kinds of games where you can win some awesome prizes!

    Everyone on campus is so friendly. There is always someone to hold the door open for you if you need it and plenty of friendly faces to go up to and say hello if you are in need of a dinner date or a new study buddy. I am a tour guide, orientation leader and a member of the Fitchburg Activities Board (FAB) on campus and I even work in the Volunteer Center in the campus center. Getting involved and helping out around campus is a great way to make new friends, share memories and have fun!
