Frostburg State University Reviews

-Frostburg State University is located in Frostburg, Maryland 21532

-What I like about FSU is that it is a smaller university that serves the direct goal of educating students, and this university does this extremely well. The primary focus of this university in terms of academics is business and education. FSU has an MBA program for college students pursuing a masters in business. This university is also on the cheaper end, averaging 21000$ a year to attend full-time for in-state students and about 30000$ for out of state.

-Some of the negatives to this university is that it is very bear-bones. There are not a lot of organizations to join, there are not a lot of entertaining things to do, and the room and board are pretty sparse. It doesn't help FSU is located in a town that has also has very little things to do or go to. The Town of Frostburg is more propped up economically by the University and not the other way around.

I had various issues with professors throughout the years, and it was always extremely difficult to resolve. One year- I had a professor who gave me a 25 out of 75 in my participation due to the fact that she got "negative vibes"from me. Of course I went to the Dean, whom when he confronted the professor, made up another reason. He did nothing else to resolve it, and each time I had a problem thereafter he was completely cold and showed no empathy. After I graduated, I realized I would never donate to my alma mater.
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.
