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.

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

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Frostburg State University is best affordable college in Maryland, they help find the right financial plan for student in order to have great college experience. There are a lot of programs for any major you interested in and also some activities or clubs if your interested in college. I know is the best college because they have been awarded. Very Affordable, have small classes

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion is that it's a great school! There's many ways to get involved, there's usually always something going on campus. My only concern is the quality of student housing. There are very few nice places to live on campus - and that's clearly reflected in how much those dorms cost. Try and save money on housing and you end up in a dorm with broken elevators, messy kitchens and leaking bathrooms.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It was simply a school that offered a program that could help me obtain my degree while working. I had numerous issues with Professors and the Dean and never got anything resolved. For example, during my final year of college I was working full-time, but had no health insurance. I couldn't afford to obtain health insurance through the school, so I lived with a lot of anxiety and fear about the future and my overall health. I was paying a therapist out of pocket to help manage my stress, and she offered to write a letter to the Dean so I could get extra time to complete assignments and tests. The Dean wouldn't accept my letter because I hadn't "presented my recent diagnosis prior". I will never give a cent to that school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Frostburg is fairly isolated in the middle of the rural mountains of Allegheny County, Maryland. It is one of the less-expensive colleges in Maryland, so there is a chance for incredible diversity. However, conservative mindsets are abundant despite it being a Liberal Arts college. It can be quite safe, though there is a history of crime, and the occasional critical accident does occur, mostly under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
