    You honestly get a private school experience for a public university price. Fitchburg is one of the best choices I have made. Its small campus community is just like a private schools, the small classes make it easy to learn and succeed as well as seek help when you need it. We have so many services (i.e tutoring, gym, student activites) that are all free which is luxury. The price you pay is a bargain for the education and living we get!

    with $20,000 a year you could live a very comfortable life here and that is very cheap if you see what other colleges offer.

    Film schools are normally expensive but Fitchburg is extremely cheap. It also is a strong program that is very hands on.

    I'm paying in state tuition for an out of state school (this applies for comm media, and a few science programs only). This was a huge factor in me going here. Its very affordable.

    Why spend upwards of $50,000 at a private university to obtain the same degree in nursing as you would from an expensive private school?
