3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Off-Campus dining is okay. It has different types of diverse food and places.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Campus isn't too strict about a lot of stuff. But they're strict about the most important things.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: It was rough, but I got the financial aid that I needed.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: The party scene is great. Everyone is social, and likes to have a good time!

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: I really enjoy the campus food. All of the different types of food that I like in a small area. It's the best.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: My dorm room is one of the worst dorm rooms on campus. My roommate and I keep our room clean and organized so it isn't that bad.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It is great living on campus. It is very spacious dorms. I have a lot of room for myself. There are a lot of different nights hosted by the staff. It is not the most social environment. The process for housing is very fast and easy.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: A small town with a few restaurants. A 5 minute drive is required to get a few more options.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: A little outdated and dingy.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Many choices for off-campus housing scattered all through town. Prices seem legit and reasonable.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I've never been in a fraternity. People involved in Greek life are REALLY involved and those who aren't don't seem to care.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The safety and security on campus is good. I feel safe most times because I see University Police patrolling the area. However, most of the time, it seems as though they are more focused on handing out parking tickets than they are worried about student and faculty safety.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: I've lived here my whole life so my perspective probably differs from most students'. I love my hometown of Frostburg. There aren't a lot of opportunities here and there isn't a lot to do, but it has a special place in my heart.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: My major/program, Computer Information Systems, is under the Computer Science department. The department is organized and classes are legitimate. The professors seem to know what they are doing and instruction is well-organized.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: Instructors aren't outstanding and the information delivered in class and the way classes are handles seems like it could improve.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I received the loans I needed in a snap. However, as far as scholarships go, I feel as though I could have received more assistance. With my previous outstanding GPA and strive and motivation to better myself, it would be nice to be rewarded for this. I want to obtain this degree but the financial burden of loans stacking up is definitely hanging over my head.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: The Frostburg State community, and also the town of Frostburg, aren't really all that into athletics. The overall attitude toward it is sub-par. No one seems that interested. It is actually unfortunate. The residents of Frostburg are more into the high school sports than anything else. Also, the teams at FSU do not perform very well. This, accompanied with other issues, seems to maybe be why sports aren't all that popular within the community.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Main Street has many available food options, and even a primarily vegetarian cafe, though they do make some meat dishes for those who aren't vegetarians and the food is delicious.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Campus housing is good, except for Cumberland Hall, which everyone agrees to being rather bad.

4 College Freshman

Administration: I think that the administration is great and that they really crack down on policy to make sure that the campus improves

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: On-campus is truthfully better than off-campus really.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
