I really liked the atmosphere of the campus. It’s surrounded my mountains and feels like a breath of fresh air being up there. Being on a athletic team there is very fun! We are just a big family! The academic side of the school is very good and understanding. The professors there want you to succeed and are very understanding about what people need on campus. It would be nice if the different clubs on campus would advertise more and make it more interactive for students to join. I didn’t really get to see all the options of all the clubs they have at school. Overall it’s a very nice place to get some fresh air, meet new people, have fun, and be academically excellent!

I love Frostburg! My teachers have been great, and the experience has been great as well! My only concern is the quality of the dorms. My dorm consistently had leaks coming from the bathroom upstairs and on my roommates side of the room, a huge crack developed over her bed. Frostburg seriously needs to make more investments in student housing.
My experience at Frostburg State University has actually been a lot better than I have rated the actual school. At this university, I have made relationships that will last decades, learned more than I ever have in my life, and I found a second home in this school. From orientation on, everyone is accepting of new students with open arms. This school makes everyone feel welcomed and that comforting feeling is the reason why people stay at Frostburg for all fours years. The food could be a little better and some of the dorms are sub-par, but us students, made the most of what we were given at this school. As far as academics, there are a few professors that you can tell care little to none about the education of students. But they are outweighed by the professors who would do anything to see their students succeed. Athletics at Frostburg were amazing. I swam for the swim team at the university and if I could do it all again, I would in a heart beat.
