    There are different clubs you can join to have some fun and meet like-minded students. There are parties and other fun events usually hosted by school groups which can be an enjoyable experience.

    There are a lot of clubs and events on-campus. There's also Greek life if you're interested. If you plan on doing something fun off-campus, I'd suggest you have a car because some of those fun things are in downtown Cumberland or somewhere else in Cumberland. There's a mall where Walmart is, but sometimes it can get boring because there's not much there.

    Contrary to popular belief, there is a actually several things to do for fun around FSU. On campus, the school holds a "Late at Lane" event during the first Saturday of every month. Each time, there is a different theme, and there are games, dances, prizes, food, singers, activities, etc. It goes until 2 am. Sometimes it's lame, but other times it's super lit. Obviously, FSU has a lot of parties if you're into that, but don't expect to entry to most parties after rush week (the first two to three weeks of each semester) is over unless you're in a fraternity or sorority, have tight connections with a leader of one, or are a girl. You also have tons of trails, parks, mountains, lakes, and ski resorts within short driving distance. Some are within walking distance, too. The area that surrounds FSU is one of the most beautiful surrounding areas you'll find in Maryland college campuses and college campuses on the east coast in general. As someone who has attended two univerisities, I can guarantee you that regardless of what school you go to, fun will not come to your lap if you just sit in your dorm all day. You have to go out and make effort yourself, or else you'll be bored at any school.

    There really isn't anything exciting. There's are really small mall that has a movie theater. The AR's try to make a lot of programs or activities for the students. There are a lot of parties but not everyone goes to them.

    Most people drink or get high because there's literally nothing else to do. If you don't have a car you can't get off campus, and even if you do, Frostburg and LaVale are devoid of any entertainment value, aside from the mall and movie theatre.

    There are many clubs to join that put on activities that you can attend or help set up. There's also sports teams you can try out for or club sports teams that you can join. This is what helped me pass a lot of free time and have fun.

    Greek Life is very present at Frostburg. There are different groups and clubs for all different kinds of people. I personally spent a lot of time at the library. As an English major it is difficult to find time to read for fun, but the library has long hours. Also Netflix. If you're going to come here you're going to want Netflix. Like I said, it's very cold, and there are some days that FSU has cancelled school because it is just too cold to go outside.

    There is a committee that hosts an on-campus event called Late@Lane that includes food, games, music, and other activities. This is a really fun event and is a non-alcoholic environment. Other things to do for fun are volunteer work(yes that can be fun), joining a club or society, and there is a mall with a movie theater ten minutes away.
