What is your overall opinion of this school?

Frostburg State University is a wonderful college. It has everything that I am looking for in a college. Their athletic programs are amazing and their is several opportunities for me to excel their. They have a beautiful college and several opportunities to hike and be with the outdoors. Frostburg has many clubs to join and great groups of people to be around. The campus is very clean and safe to be in and it is not that big but enough to make you feel cozy and comfortable. The proffessors and everyone else are always available to help when I could be struggling in a class and are there to answer my questions.

My opinion of frostburg state university is that it's a great school to keep forward with your education. There is a lot of opportunity here for you to exceed. The school really tries there best to have every student be involved with the campus ranging from clubs, work study, you name it. Now the location of is very beautiful being surrounded by nature, but the winter here could be a little overwhelming.

Frostburg state is a decent school, it has a unique vibe to it which in turn makes it stand out from the rest. There are a numbered amount of activities to take part in on campus, campus life isn't too extravagant but it is decent. Overall the campus is a unique yet plain experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Frostburg State University was definitely one of my top picks for a couple of reasons. First of all, it was in-state (Maryland), and the tuition price was more affordable in comparison to the other Maryland universities. Another big reason was its location since my interests include the environment, hiking and animals. I knew I wanted to attend a small town college, and Frostburg seemed like a great fit since its environment was described as "rural" (and it is!). My final big reason was it is the only Maryland university with my major, Wildlife & Fisheries. Overall it's a great University and it certainly provides me with the education I need to build my future!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Pros: -Greek life is great here. I'm involved in Greek life and I am very happy - Lots of extra curriculars. So many. - Nature is everywhere. The atmosphere is calming, and there's even an arboretum. - There IS a night life outside of partying, if you look for it. Main Street has a theatre, a bar that hold open mic nights and poetry slams, and the literary arts center hosts authors that read their works. On campus, there's a big event in the Lane Center every month (this month had a petting zoo, caricature drawings, a man who juggled tazers, and so much more) - Most professors are enthusiastic about their job and would love to help you. There's definitely a few who are full of themselves, but for the most part, we have a great faculty. -Hands on experience with your major. As a nursing major, I get to shadow other nurses in hospitals, as just an example. But just about every major gets real hands on experience outside of school. -You will meet some great people. I have met some of my best friends here, who I know I'll have for life. -Lots of diversity Cons: -We're so fucking poor. I have no idea when is the last time they maintained the sidewalks. -Lower quad dorms are crummy. Broken blinds, stained chairs, etc. Luckily, they're renovating them all to look like upper quad dorms (which are very nice) - People will scoff at your school and say it's "not a real school" -You will wonder if what you experience is the same as any other college, or if you're being cheated out of a true college experience.This school definitely what you make out of it. You can choose to hate every negative aspect of it and suffer through it, or you can surround yourself with all the wonderful things it has to offer. Me being poor as shit, I don't have a choice. I am not my schools reputation, and you don't have to be either. I know I mentioned a lot of negative things, but I also love it here, cause it's making me stronger each day, and I have found so many beautiful people and opportunities. If you go here, id say make damn sure you get at least a 3.5 GPA when you get out so grad schools/jobs know you mean business.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It’s a good school. However if you are in education, good luck. This school is a good school for education. However there are a billion hoops for students to jump through to get there. You can pass all the way through to your senior year and fail one class, or fail one assessment, and fail your whole major. This program is unlike no other school’s in the MD system’s and they lose students every year. I wish I had started at another school because now I’m going to have to finish at another one 4 years later.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I enjoy the school. There are many different people who have come here, including many people who came from China. The on-campus staff are very friendly, as well as the RA's. They have been very helpful and are willing to help no matter what you need. Starbucks is a popular place to both hangout and study as well. I would recommend Frostburg for those who are looking for a cheaper, yet good school in Maryland.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

If you are looking for a nice school where it is easy to get the help you need either when it comes to a class, housing, or financial aid, then THIS IS NOT THE SCHOOL FOR YOU. This school cares too much about the money they get from their students and they use it in all the wrong places. Most of the professors are tenured and as a result no longer care to teach classes in a way that students can understand, there's always a problem with housing due to how inefficiently it is ran. Worse of all, the financial aid office makes too many mistakes to the point where they almost lost the school's accreditation. Going deeper into the issues that I listed, if you need help for a class you need to hope that either the tutors at the school can help you because most of the professors do not care enough and even if they claim that they do care if you come to them with a concern after class or even outside of their office hours they either disregard it or they ignore you altogether. The Residence Halls Office is usually aware of all the problems there are on campus but rather than trying to fix the issues with all the residence halls they are stock piling the money and trying to build a new dorm, leaving the old ones in poor conditions. During my first semester at Frostburg the financial aid office made a mistake where they charged me around $3000 more money than they were supposed to and then they refunded me more money than they were supposed to and added the refund charge to my tuition the following semester, and after my family they got their money they later on took away my grants because my father received a pay raise and they thought that my parents would be able to pay for my education out of pocket but they couldn't. If all this wasn't bad enough, the university police doesn't do their jobs unless marijuana is involved or if there's a party going on. I took a risk by attending this school for 2 and a half years, and I decided to further my education in another school because this school is horrid.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It’s not that bad, but not that great. It’s cheap and it gets the job done. I now have to use 250 characters. Frostburg is in Maryland and was founded in 1812. Now I’m not sure if this review is mandatory or not. I like summer, and dogs. Dogs are my favorite. K thanksss byeeeee
