Sean Giovacchini

Sean Giovacchini

“I worked out the schedule where I focus quite a bit on the weekends because my work week can be super crazy, so I do my reading then. I do my responses or papers on the weekends as much as possible. The ability to have that option has been useful. I wouldn't be able to do typical in-person classes with the work schedule."

“I chose online because I work the night shift, so it would have been very hard to go to classes. It was ideal. There's definitely more downtime at night, and I was able to get some work done and not have to miss sleep to be present in class."

“Fitchburg State made me feel very comfortable. There were situations when I did not understand something, for example, financial aid and loans. The staff would explain it step-by-step to me and send me an email to make sure I understood. It was a really nice experience. I highly recommend the program."
