I am just going to start living there, but the affordability of the school is what has given me hope that everything else is also going to work out. the other fact that did get me intrigued is the fact that the town is not populated compared to where I used to live. and also winter lovers are all lucky because I have heard that snows are there for a longer period of time compared to states like Maryland. Basically, anyone who is hoping to have to stress less while going through ones the first phase of independence, Frostburg I believe is the right choice, so whether you go or not apply for Frostburg as a safe choice it won't harm you.

Forstburg is small town in the mountains of Western Maryland, the views are lovely and there's never a day where you cannot appreciate where you are. The major problem with the town is due to its small size many of the residents are not open to diversity and many appear to be bigoted in one form or another.
This is a nice quiet little town however, there isn't much to do once you get older. We no longer have a movie theater so we have to drive to lavale if we want to shop or see movies. The people in this town are wonderful. We know when to pull together in times of crisis. This is a great place to start a family if you like the quiet side of living.
