As a way to keep parents informed of events, successes, and obstacles students face during their first year, the University uses a Blog to stay in contact.  The Blog is used by parents for the entirety of the first year, as an extension of Parent Orientation.  It is a place for parents to ask questions and get information long after Parent Orientation has ended. 

It is a space for parents to ask questions that come up during the year and gain additional knowledge about Framingham State and the resources it can offer to their student.  The blog contains information about a student's experience at Framingham State. There will be postings of important dates and events that occur for a student.  Parents will be able to comment or ask questions and have them answered in a central location.

You will have an opportunity to become a part of the site during Parent Orientation.  Click here to read and become a part of the blogosphere.
