I see Frostburg as an opportunity with great potential. The campus isn't large, but that's okay because of the smaller classes and an increased learning advantage. I enjoyed my time meeting new people, trying new things, and receiving quality education. The lack of surrounding stores in the area sucks, but, you learn to manage. The foreign exchange program is excellent! There are many students from different countries that study here and it's great to indulge in their cultures & vice-versa. However, not many American students interact with them, so they miss out on a great experience. One thing to note out about Frostburg is that they hear complaints/issues. Instead of ignoring, they work on ways to improve the overall quality of the school. I appreciate that because no one wants to dislike their school. If there is a disruption, it is addressed, and a solution is developed. I'm excited to see the continued improvement of Frostburg, looks like they're going in the right direction.

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!
