FSU was overall a good school, almost every professor I had was supportive and personal. Frostburg is a wonderful community as well, full of small businesses and opportunities for weekend fun that does not involve alcohol or drugs. The community feels very safe to me, and I'm a petite female. I feel comfortable walking around alone all day.
The best decision I have made. Frostburg State University is an awesome 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.
Personally, I like Frostburg. It's a small university which don't get me wrong can have its downside, but the fact that it's a small university means that everyone knows everybody. It makes it more family like. Everyone is connected in some sort of way. That's also good because it makes everyone more comfortable and less homesick. Frostburg isn't a University that judges either. They encourage individuality and creativity. That is why so many organizations/clubs have been created. Aside from comfort, Frostburg has great academics, a clean environment and is highly cheaper than other Universities. Frostburg University is a great school and I would definitely recommend it to others.

Vincent, everything that you thought that you knew going into college about life and college was right. You are prepared for the greatness that you are about to experience. You honestly rose to the occasion of every challenge that was thrown your way. I am proud of the work that you did on our campus. You helped every single person that you could and you bettered yourself. You got rid of biases and gained a well-rounded perspective that has helped you to quickly progress in the work-world so far.
Making that transition was not as hard as you thought it would be. You were mentally-prepared and had a stronger support system than you thought. You worked on your overeating problem and stopped sucking your thumb too. You became a more confident person and made a ton of friends. You have some truly great memories on the way. I love you.
people looking for a large school or a party school.
Before i had attended Frostburg State University, i wish i would have known about the off campus housing and the different sororities they had to offer to students. It seems as though the University wants its students to become involve in on campus activities and joining a sorority would inspire myself to become more involved.
I like that fact that it is a small school and everybody knows everybody. The people in the town that do not go to this school are very nice to the college kids and we feel very welcome. The classes are small so we get more one on one education from the professors.
it prepares you for your career and the school is diverse.
Frostburg State University is a great educational school with a lot of fun people. The school though can become quite boring, because the school is up in the mountains with little around it. Also, the school tends to get cold. The high altitude and being in the mountains contributes to the weather being cold and wet.
They're hardworking but don't always give 100% effort.
It's surroundings. It is located in the mountains, near many ski resorts and outdoor activities. It is probabily most known for how much snow we get, and how often we get it.
I speak about the school that made me into a well-rounded member of society. I speak of the school where the town and faculty adopted me as one of their own. I speak of the school where I witnessed professors go above and beyond the call of duty everyday to make sure students had their needs met. I brag about great campus life and an unforgetable experience that I would gladly do over.
Someone who prefers a small town school and who has lots of enthusiasm for intimate classes.
The most frustrating thing about Frostburg State University would probably be the fact that I had to finally leave! I met some of the most incredible people, and I had the most awesome time of my life at this incredible place! I got a more-that-competitive education, and I had a ridiculous amount of fun while I was at it. I couldn't stand being a student while I was in high school, but when I got to Frostburg State University and I learned what it had to offer to me, I really didn't want it to end!
Frostburg is a public university. I considered all other private institutions.
Pardon the mess, that's what happens when the weeks get busy...stuff just seems to explode.
I will give credit where it's due. The professors ARE knowledgeable at least in my department of business. I have heard some other departments are having trouble with some immature and even illegal behavior with some teachers. BUT the business dept and wildlife departments are golden.
I'm very impressed with the experience, knowledge and personal maturity of all the staff in the Business dept. They have produced students making 7 and 8 figures currently. That's good enough for me.
Greek life is colorful, a shining beacon of drunken degenerates and fatness.
I find more fun things to do back home.
Just a few of the options of things to do other than boozing it up on the weekends.
So it was a thursday and there was a lot of noise outside my dorm window and I noticed like everyone in the world was outside. weird.
Yes. I have found talent very few and far between, but because of a lack of activities in the campus and Frostburg city, the students are driven to drinking, but its not much different that other colleges.
Notice how this is the first review on this website? What does that say :P ... Seriously this school has a reputation for being a haven for the lazy and the drunk.
The School is out in the sticks of Western MD, hailing the uneducated rednecks and the spoiled and stupid from Montgomery county. And then they segregate naturally, its a lovely sight of progress.
Modest town, modest college, the great outdoors. If you like the mountains/woods this place is for you. Great area to study the wildlife. Poor area to go clubbing. The whole town is literally just rows of student housing. House parties are very common, planning to live out dreams of 'Old School' well this is your place. OR... if you wish to study in solitude you can accomplish this as well...which is what I'm doing. If you have self-discipline you can reach great heights here...but don't expect much company from the student body in your pursuit of accomplishing schoolwork.
The faculty and services? Lets start with the admissions, billing and financial aid. RETARDED. I transferred from working security at Frederick Community College and that campus has MORE students than Frostburg State. But the weird thing is...Frederick is more efficient, better equipped and overall excellent in customer service and knowledge of the system. When I came to Frostburg I was not informed of who to talk to about what, and all the departments do not talk to each other so you're basically going around asking the staff for help and they just divert you to a different dept. I seriously could give two shits less if they all lost their jobs...in a sudden and painful manner... Bottom line: THESE people need education from ME (as a veteran in small business skills)!
They don't advertise with Google, they don't ask students anything, they don't work on work hours for the students instead dick around on computers and chat. My heart rate spikes when I think about them. I could go on ALL day about the failures as an organization...just be ready to do EVERYTHING YOURSELF. They WILL BE inept.
All resources on this campus are pathetic and outdated. THE END.
Sports teams are managed and trained as well as a pampered poodle. My high school (Linganore High) as some know is reputable for having a strong team. They would put up a great game against what i have seen as the so called 'football team'. Discipline here is non-existent.
