Miss Representation Film Screening and Discussion

The University has been doing a full-day Parent Orientation for the past seven years.  We have received tremendous feedback about the program.  This is just a sampling of some of the feedback we have received.

Comments from June 2013:

"Best orientation program, very down to earth and extremely informative."

"A little long, but I'm sure it is because the students needed the time."

"This is my third daughter to attend FSU and today confirms how great we know FSU is."

"A lot of info but helpful, even for parents who had already been through the process with other children."

"Very informative, impressed with all aspects of information and overall orientation experience."

Comments from June 2012:

"I found the orientation very informative and entertaining. Thank You!"

"Very good. I feel so much more prepared for what to expect and what my daughter
can expect and needs to do to be successful."

"This day put me (as a parent) at ease, it was very informative. Everyone I interacted with today
associated with FSU is so upbeat and positive and realistic. I hope my student will take advan-
tage of all the excellent support that I learned about today."

"All was great, well planned and informative.  Long day, but I don't think it can be helped."

"Exceeded my expectations! Now I don't feel so anxious for September 1st."

Comments from June 2011:

"This is my 5th child's orientation that I have attended and this was by far the best of the previous four.  It was both informative and well-presented.  I feel very good about my son's decision to attend FSU!"

"All was absolutely wonderful! So well done, such a great atmosphere, happier than ever with this choice."

"Very comprehensive, fun, and funny, I am very excited to have my daughter attending."

"A very nice, informative day, I feel confident that a student has all the resources on campus that they need to succeed.  Well done!

Comments from June 2010:

"I was very pleased with the entire program, and especially was impressed with the wealth of new student programs to help them acclimate to Framingham State.  Thank You."

"It was a very long day, but very informative.  Staff was very nice and they made me feel good about sending my daughter to Framingham State."

"The program was not only informative but 'entertaining'.  I cannot say enough about how blessed our family is to have our son be part of this great school!  The camaraderie between faculty is genuine and impressive."

"Thank you so much for this program.  I feel like you understand freshmen and their mentality and maturity level."

"Excellent. felt like parents were pulled in as much as possible and the sense of community was very apparent."

Comments from June 2009:

"We can't stress enough how impressed we are with the faculty and B&G students each opportunity we've had to meet them.  We're very excited for our son to start his college career at FSU."

"Informative, fun and enjoyable!  Great group of speakers."

"Excellent! Actually exceeded my expectations."

"Very informative, dynamic speakers, good time/people management."

"Well done - long and at times overwhelming but high energy and sincerity! Much appreciated."

"I appreciate the organization and thought that goes into helping our student's transition into college life."
