Commuter students are invited to participate in a number of the program's offerings, including faculty-led discussions on this year's common reading.
First-time first-year student Gabriella Musto of Jamaica Plain could barely contain her excitement about starting her education at FSU.

"I am so excited about attending Framingham State University and I hope to academically excel and be an asset to the university community."
