Frostburg is a great small town in the beautiful mountains of Western Maryland. We have a great selection of foods to choose from. There are many family owned businesses on Main Street that gives the town a very friendly atmosphere. We are a close knit community.
It would be nice to receive more emails about monthly scholarship opportunities. I do like the report of colleges and the ease of finding scholarships. It would also be helpful if I was not offered scholarships I am not eligible for
