Student Development

Welcome from the Dean of Students!

Welcome to the 2018-2019 academic year!

Whether you are a returning student or just beginning your collegiate career, you will find that the Framingham State University faculty and staff will work with you to build a community of learners and to create an environment that promotes leadership, values diversity and respect for others, and fosters learning both in and out of the classroom. 

There are many resources available to assist you in accomplishing your academic and social goals:

  • Study often and learn to manage your time!
  • Get to know your faculty (visit office hours, they want to know you as well).
  • Use the Center for Academic Support and Achievement (CASA) to gain tutoring assistance or fine-tune your study habit skills (everyone could use a refresher); CASA is poised to help, just ask.
  • There are over 50 clubs and organizations to choose from, a myriad of intramural and varsity sports, and academic and/or social events occur every day. I urge you to participate, join, tryout, and/or attend; you won’t regret your decision.

Stop by the Dean of Students Office to say "hi", or receive guidance on how to solve a problem. Either way the staff is ready and available to assist you in any way that we can. 

Have a great year and work to uphold the University motto “Live to the Truth!”

~Dr. Meg Nowak Borrego, Dean of Students
