Fitchburg State University was a stimulating and satisfying place to work at. Working in the Admissions Office was very fulfilling because I was able to see young adults starting their college careers with so much hope and determination. The office climate was very cooperative and enjoyable.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Fitchburg, MA – February 21, 2018
It was a fun job for my work study. It got to do many fun things in the athletic department. such as track the numbers during the soccer and lacrosse game, film hockey games and work the football games.
Phonathon Caller (Former Employee) – Fitchburg, MA – January 10, 2018
The job was so much fun because it was so dynamic. I met a lot of people and the social aspect of being at work was the best part. The worst part was probably the fact that I got tired after calling so many people, since our job was to convince people to donate money to our university.
Athletic Trainer Assistant (Current Employee) – Fitchburg, MA – November 15, 2017
I am a sophomore nursing student. This job that I currently hold at Fitchburg State University is a work study, in which I am allowed to work up to 20 hours a week. I think 20 hours is a perfect amount to work while balancing nursing school, as well. I assist the athletic trainers in their daily occurrences on the job with a variety of sports teams. In the fall I work with football; in the winter I work with hockey; in the spring I work mainly with lacrosse and track, but sometimes I am thrown into help with other sports. My job is limited due to lack of experience, but I help and offer my assistance in any way that I can. Typically across the board, I help out with waters and gatorades for practices and games, wrap and ice athletes before/ after sporting events, and instill athlete information with the use of SportsWare. Although athletic training and nursing have different career paths and settings, I can note a lot of overlap between the two professions. Whenever I am with the athletic trainers and someone gets injured or have an injury, they are always explaining how certain things happen or take it as a chance to review human anatomy with me, which I find extremely helpful. I appreciate the job and how lucky I was when I had the chance to get it.
Learning experiences, Similar to nursing, camaraderie between trainers and athletes
productive and fun times while working with exciting people

FSU is one of the greatest places I have had the pleasure of learning from and working for. They often have a lot of challenges, as are natural in that field, but they are really a community that values each other. They encourage personal growth and learning as their mantra.
