After my first year at Frostburg, I can definitely say what I like most about the school is the small campus setting. It gave me a sense of community as I never went a day without bumping into someone I knew on my way to class or even to get some food down at the Lane Center. Frostburg is best at making sure everyone feels like they are right at home. There is a lot of campus involvement as many different organizations try to entice students to come out and have fun.

While Frostburg is located in a very rural area, the university does a great job of involving its students and the community surrounding the school in cultural events and celebrations. Over the last three years, I have learned a great deal about professionalism and working hard. I have been pushed to succeed while attending Frostburg and I have found many mentors that I look up to. One of the events I most look forward to when I go back to school for the year is the block party that the University hosts on Main Street. The block party showcases all of the student groups on campus and all the resources that are available to the students and the community. This helps all the new students learn the faces of leaders on campus and people they can go to for anything they need while attending Frostburg. I have made the best memories of my life and have learned more than I ever imagined I would while attending Frostburg State University.

The experience I've had here at Frostburg State has taught me so many valuable lessons in the course of my freshman year. Frostburg is a very diverse school where you take classes with people all over, this school also has a nice curriculum that isn't too strict but rewarding at the same time.
