Frostburg State University has students of many different ethnic backgrounds, races, religions, and sexual orientations. The campus is very accepting of the diversity. Most students are able to look beyond these labels and see people for their personalities, instead of for their affiliations. Some students are more open about how diverse they are than others, but either way, they are still accepted with open arms.
The campus has many international students from China, different parts of Africa, Japan, Germany, and many other countries. These students are very easily accepted on campus. If a student sees an international student who looks lost or confused, he or she will most likely help the student find his or her way around campus or wherever he or she needs to go. These students are no different from American students, except that they have a harder time learning, mainly due to the American dialect. These students are very friendly, but very shy. In addition, the campus has different organizations to make the international students’ transitions much easier.
