3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There is a clear difference between the NPHC fraternities and sororities and NPC sororities/fraternities on campus. When inquiring about "other" sororities, many of the NPC sororities know nothing of the existence of NPHC sororities.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I applied for 40+ scholarships and was awarded none.. It is frustrating to need money and over qualify for scholarships to only be told no.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms are not large and spacious, but there is enough room for 2 people to comfortably share the space. Most believe Cumberland is the worst dorm on campus. Living on campus provides an exceptional opportunity to have social opportunities.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: The buildings are becoming outdated, but there are efforts to transform and renovate currently going on.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: May not be up to most building codes because they are older homes. The school holds an off-campus housing information session.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: A degree from this school may be valuable if you're looking to go into a field that requires no graduate school. Most students will need to go onto a graduate school in order to become whatever it is they want to become in their careers.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Frostburg is a cute school in a quaint town that offers a spot for everyone on campus to flourish and explore both themselves and their unfamiliar surroundings.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: I feel that policies are lenient enough to not inhibit student's desires to live the way they want. The rules aren't hard to abide by.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: It seems most of the school's population comes from contiguous counties and is therefore predominantly white and republican.They typically all dress the same, shorts in the winter and flip flops.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Since the school has changed their food service provider, the quality of the food may improve, but only time will tell.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Frostburg State University is currently under a Title 9 investigation. I felt safe for the most part while on campus, but things can and still do happen.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: The campus tries to implement many strategies to make minorities feel included. There are efforts from staff as well as students to tackle issues of inclusivity.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Parties are mostly safe for females to attend. Parties available mostly every weekend.

4 College Junior

Nightlife: My of-age friends seem to really enjoy it. Personally I'm not the party type

4 College Junior

Athletics: Athletics is great at our school! We have so many talented athletes and so many different sports! Unfortunately, most non-athletes aren't interested in attending the games during the school year. Homecoming Football games still have a huge turn-out though!

5 College Junior

Majors: I really do enjoy my major! It allows me to learn in and outside of the classroom and I get to connect with my professors on another level because we share the same interest in the exercise sciences! So great connections with great people, who talk about some really interesting and thought provoking material.

4 College Junior

Majors: My major specifically, does not have a requirement. Athletic Training program does have a few GPA related requirements to get in, though.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek Life is probably one of the greatest forces on any campus. From the individual to the group level, Greek Life does so much to break people out of their shell and connect them to others. Greek Life as a whole is definitely a family and the Greek Life family is just as friendly with the rest of the campus as they are with each other.

5 College Junior

Scholarships: This school's Financial Aid faculty is a Dream Team! They genuinely care and want to help!

5 College Junior

Academics: As an Exercise & Sports Science major, the academica are not only enlightening and interesting, but they are very enjoyable! Most majors get to learn either outside of the classroom or get taught without traditional lectures. Another thing that Frostburg supplies for every student is "Experiential Learning". The school is huge on making sure students get experience in their field along with book-smarts.

5 College Junior

Academics: I love my major! I'm an Exercise & Sports Science major, and I have very interested lectures that I don't mind hearing and engaging in, as well as eye-opening field experience or lab days were the students get to go outside of the classroom to learn. In the classes I've enrolled in, I've been in we have gone to the weight room to learn about all the equipment and different exercises, check out our Exercise Physiology Lab to run experiments, or actually go out into the community to experience the different local health clubs! I could not envision myself in another major.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't lived off-campus but I have many friends who do and they love it!

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: The city of Frostburg is beautiful! The locals are actually really great people. Parks such as "Deep Creek", "Dan's Rock", and "Swallow Falls" in close distance.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: In order to graduate, Frostburg has an internship requirement for most if not all majors in their field. Also our school hosts a number of events either general, or major-specific that connects students to local or more wide-spread companies that are looking to hire.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: To put how I feel about this school in detail, I'd end up writing a book. So to save some time, I will just say that attending Frostburg was easily the best decision I have made to date. Since attending I have made drastic improvements in my confidence, leadership and public speaking abilities, and I am only growing still.

Upon first entering Frostburg State University, visitors may notice that the school is in the center of a very small town. Everyone seems to know everyone. The campus is so small that you may see all of your friends at least once in the course of a day, but it is big enough that you will never meet every single student. Frostburg has a very "homey" feel to it, with teachers that make connections with the students in a way they may have never experienced in high school. The teachers take a genuine interest in the students’ learning. When a student puts a lot of effort into a class, the teacher takes notice and is more than willing to help him or her pass the class. 

This campus is the type of "dream campus" that most incoming freshmen have in mind when they think about ideal college life. This place has teachers that care, long-lasting friendships, and it's a place where you will grow from a college freshman to an expert in whatever field you choose.
