Campus Food: Typical college food. Not to great but also usually not too bad. I will say that especially in Lane there is very little variety. But there is a Starbucks where you can use your bonus bucks.

Campus Housing: I think the rooms are pretty average size. Unfortunately, depending on what hall you live in, the bathrooms are not cleaned well! Frost Hall is always extremely clean, Simpson is also pretty good (it's bathrooms were also recently renovated) but Annapolis Hall and Cumberland Hall tend to be pretty dirty.

Greek Life: The Greek life at Frostburg State University is looked highly upon by most students and faculty. The Greeks often host special events on and off-campus to help the community and school. They have bake sales, auctions and many other events that helps them raise money. At the beginning of the semester they hold a Rush-week, which gives students who are interested in joining the organization information and possible acceptance in to the Greek life. As far as I know, there is no specific housing for the Greeks. I think they are able to pick their own off-campus housing for.

Athletics: Frostburg State University is a great school, but we are definitely not known for our athletics. We have every sport one could think of and the most popular sport is lacrosse. They have many wins and fewer losses. They have a great practice area inside the Athletic Department and an even better field to play on. Although I am not a fan of lacrosse, many students come out and support the team whenever they have an home game. Sometimes people take a bus trip to watch them play, if its not too far from the school. Fans usually dress up in the school colors, and sometimes paint their faces with their favorite lacrosse players number.

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing is very easy to find. Most students just walk up and down the streets close campus and look for signs that say open availability for students. The signs also contain information with the landlords name and phone number. The cost of off-campus housing is usually less expensive than on-campus housing, however, off-campus housing is usually further from campus which makes it more difficult to attend classes, especially if its one of those Frostburg winter storms. The neighborhoods are safe because they are filled with other Frostburg students. Only 10% of the surrounding neighborhoods are not Frostburg student residence.

Off-Campus Dining: Off-campus dining is very minimal. There are only a few places to go with different options, however, there are not many options of different places to go. Which means if I want pizza and wings there is only one place to call to get those items. Also most places do not offer student discounts, and if they do, its only available for a specific date or time. If I were to recommend a place to eat, I would recommend Zen Shi. Zen Shi is a mainly sushi restaurant, but they have an extensive menu with other kinds of foods for none sushi eaters. My favorite thing to eat at Zen Shi's are the Honey Glazed Shrimp Rolls because they have the right combination of spicy and sweet all packed in a tiny sushi roll.

Administration: Frostburg State University is very strict on underage drinking. I think that it is very necessary for them to have this policy because underage drinking is not only against the law, but it also has some health risks. The National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism states that "each year, approximately 5,000 young people under the age of 21 die as a result of underage drinking; this includes about 1,900 deaths from motor vehicle crashes, 1,600 as a result of homicides, 300 from suicide, as well as hundreds from other injuries such as falls, burns, and drownings." Also to avoid any liability, Frostburg State University does not allow students of age to drink around someone whose underage. This avoids any temptation of breaking the law.

Scholarships: The financial aid process at my school has been the worst experience that I have ever had with any school. I move to Maryland from Missouri mainly because I wanted to attend Frostburg State University. Before I moved to Maryland I called and asked the financial aid office if all my expenses have been covered, they reassured me that everything was fine and that I did not need any further assistance. However, when I arrived to school and tried to buy my books they told me that my account had insufficient funds and that I actually owed the school over 7,000 dollars. I come from a single parent household with no college fund saved up, so paying 7,000 was not an option. So instead of trying to figure out how i was going to come up with 7,000+ dollars, I had to lower my credit hours to half time and pick the cheapest meal plan but I still owed the school 3,000+ dollars. To help with that, I had to take out another loan and that only gave me 2,000 dollars, so I still owed 1,000+ dollars. I now have two jobs so I can save enough money to pay off my balance.

Campus Food: The food on campus is okay. Some days its delicious, some days not so much. However, I do like the fact that they're so many options beside the usual Chesapeake Dining Hall. One of my favorite places to go is Grill Nation, which serves turkey, black bean and beef burgers and it comes with a side of fries or onion rings. I also like that we can use our meal plan to pay for Grill Nations and other fast foods they have on campus, however, Grill Nations can be expensive so if my meal plan does not cover the whole meal I have to use some of my Bonus Bucks/ Flex Dollars.

Campus Housing: Living in the dorms are fun, they are always clean and the space is adequate. I enjoy living here because I am so close to my friends in the cluster/quad I live in. The dorms are really pricey for in-state-tuition students however, they offer free laundry and a complimentary microwave and refrigerators. Almost every week the RA's have fun activities for the residents that allow us to mingle with other floors and other clusters. The housing application and the whole process is really easy and self explanatory except when it comes to figuring out which dorm best suits you, but Mrs. Susie in the Residence life office is very helpful when you need it.

Guys & Girls: I don't really socialize on campus

Campus Food: The dining hall doesn't have real home foods.

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.
