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!

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.

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.

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: 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: I honestly love pretty much every one on campus. The campus is like one big family, which is especially evident when someone goes through hard times; people you may have never even seen before would be more that willing to help you when in need.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I try to save my money the best I can, but sometime I just can't resist the allure of some off-campus food. We have some great "safe" options like pizza and wing spots or Chinese food restaurants, but we also have some more adventurous places around. All of which students can discover themselves when they venture out to find their preferences.

5 College Junior

Facilities: I honestly love student life on campus. From the people, to the places, Frostburg State University was definitely the best school I could have picked. The school is perfectly mid-sized, so you get to meet a lot of great students and are able to create meaningful relationships and connections with the genuinely caring, well-qualified faculty. The campus is already beautiful, rain or shine, and its constantly being renovated to stay as modern as possible for the students. We are currently adding an amazing new building for our Mass Communications, Math and Technology majors, as well as revamping our dining hall and food court. Dorm life has brought me great experiences while I've been here and there are many perks such as free laundry and free parking! Jobs are plentiful on campus and students can get great paying jobs with or without work study. The best thing about the campus is definitely the student involvement, in any department. Frostburg really encourages its students to get involved and build our leadership and communication skills. But the amount of opportunities and experiences that present themselves when you get involved on this campus are enough to make anyone speak of Frostburg in such a way. Just a great place to be.

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.
