During open forum, Senator Fallon Soye addressed the inadequate video monitoring in the parking lots.
Soye alleged her friend’s car was stolen Sunday. She added someone smashed the back window before the car was stolen. The car was destroyed and the gas tank was left empty.
“I was just wondering what we can do to make sure that the cameras are monitored or maybe police do a sweep every hour or so just because a car was stolen on Framingham State property,” said Soye.
Karl Bryan, student trustee, said he would talk to FSUPD and Dale Hamel, executive vice president.
Advising and registration start next week on Monday and Senator Allison Carroll said she was concerned “about classes not being up on MyFramingham” in a timely fashion.

In addition, Senator Kevin Peña said the gym is “dusty and dirty.”
