I have only attended Frostburg State University for 1 year, and my experience through this time has been great. The professors at Frostburg want you to succeed and excel at the profession that you are studying for. The social environment is very diverse with many different cultures meshed into one concentrated area. The food options at Frostburg are generally the same as any other 4-year University ( Cafeteria, Chic-fil-a, Subway, etc.), while providing some close but off campus dining options as well.

Frostburg is perfect for me! With small class sizes, low costs, a wide range of majors, a field hokey team, and a compact campus, FSU meets all of my college needs. Orientation provided students with a good understanding of what was in store for them and gave us freshmen a chance to explore the campus and meet new people before the fall semester began. I was recruited to play field hockey so I had to move in a few weeks earlier than other students for preseason training and I was able to get a better understanding of the campus. Over the course of the fall semester was supplied with the resources needed to succeed (labs, study groups, tutors, teacher help, etc) and I had a wonderful time getting to meet new people and learn new things.
I just finished my freshman year here at Frostburg State University and I loved it. Compared to the other colleges I applied to and looked at Frostburg honestly felt like home when I first stepped foot on the campus for a tour last year. The feeling of home has just grown since then over my year attending Frostburg. Even though I love my campus there are still some things I would improve to make the university better, the first thing being food at Cafe. Honestly compared to the other colleges I have visited Frostburg's Cafe is one of the worst food I have had Honestly I try not to go there because there have been a few times I have gotten sick after eating there, I'm not sure if its the food or the way the food is cooked. Other than the food everything else is great; there are a lot of organizations and clubs you can get involved in on campus. Greek life is great, I'm not in it but I know many people who are who love it. Finally the connections you make last a lifetime.
