  • I did not live in a dorm; I lived in Edgewood Commons. Edgewood is nice, fairly quiet, has great amenities and is incredibly comfortable. Don't get Cumberland!!!…

  • Depending on what dorm you get depends on if it's nice or not. Diehli has nice bathrooms while Cumberland's are gross. And almost all the dorms has sister dorms; Diehli-Gray,…

    The food around Frostburg is decent. It can be expensive but the pizza they sell is good especially for it's price. There are a variety of nice places to eat around Frostburg that you should take a visit to.

    There is a little variety with food, but the food is not the greatest. I think it is stupid that if you live on-campus and do not sign up for a meal plan within a deadline, the billing office will give you the most expensive meal plan. I like that we have bonus bucks for if we go over our meal plan limit and buying stuff from Outtakes. The prices for some things in the Lane Center and Outtakes are ridiculously high. If you want to buy extra snacks, drinks, etc., you're better off going to Walmart or Weis. At the Chesapeake Dining Hall, the servers can be stingy when serving food.

    The dining hall food is absolutely disgusting. There are times where I questioned if the food I was being fed was alive. Sometimes the dining hall food can be okay, like when there's a tour, but most times it's absolutely awful. There are barely any options for Muslim and Jewish students as well, except for barely edible things, non-meal type foods, or nasty pizza on most days. However, your dining options aren't only limited to the cafeteria. There is a subway in Sowers Hall, and the Lane Center has Chik Fil A, Moes, Grill Nation, Starbucks, a Salad place, tomato 2 go, and you can use your meal swipes there instead of in the cafeteria. Avoid cafe as much as possible. If you live in Edgewood apartments or off campus, you don't have to get a meal plan either, and there is a Food Lion nearby where you can do grocery shopping for decent food. There is also a store called Aldi's somewhere in the area if you have a car, which sells organic groceries for cheap. Really awesome place. The area has lots of good restaurants off campus as well. Some of my favorite ones are the Princess Diner (on maim street), SHiFT (organic restaurant on Broadway Street), Sand Spring, and the French Cafe on Main Street. Gianni's Pizza is also amazing.

    The cafe food is fine. It's like any cafe, but I do suggest you stay away from the chicken unless it's fried or the wings. Other than that the chicken is normally pink. The salad bar is good and so are the roasted veggies. Most people get the pizza but it gets sold after a while. But the Lane Center has the Chick Fil A, Moe's, and Starbucks which are the most popular on campus. There is also a Subway by Sowers Hall. And on main street there is a awesome Chinese place, and a restaurant called Princess.

    The food is AWFUL! I am a vegetarian, and I could never find anything to eat. Two of my friends good not eat gluten, and I can't imagine what they ate. There is a cafeteria, but it is in no way friendly to those with allergies or dietary needs. I could never find much to eat there. In the Lane Center, there's a sandwich place, a Chik-fil-a, a coffee place, and a pizza place which is absolutely terrible. You need a car to get to any restaurant. If you live in the dorms and have dietary needs you're pretty much screwed on finding anything to eat.

    There's a good amount of dining options to choose from here. Like subway, chick fa la, the dining hall, and carry outs of campus.

    I am a vegetarian, and food was really difficult for me here. The new food service providers are not the best at health, variety, or consistency. If you're coming to FSU anytime soon, I would recommend either preparing your own food or dining at the Lane Center instead of the cafeteria.

    The dining services here offer a generous amount of options for people with different taste buds. For example, the main dining hall offers food for vegetarians and vegans. There's also a places for people who don't have a meal plan or just don't want to go to the dining hall.

    Alpha Sigma Alpha, Alpha Sigma Tau, and Delta Zeta seem to be the most popular sororities. The Sigmas and the Kappas seem to be the most popular frats. There are some off-campus frats, but some you have to watch out for because they're not legitimate.

    This school is hugeeeee on Greek life. About 65\% of FSU students are part of Greek life. Be careful when joining them though. Some of them are known for sexually assaulting students, have members who have raped people before, and have done other awful things.

    There are on-campus greek life, but most choose the off-campus ones. And they are technical a gang because they don't have carter, so keep that in mind. This are the on-campsus fraternities: Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Tau Kappa Epsilon Pi Lambda Phi, Phi Mu Delta, Kappa Delta Rho. And the sororities: Alpha Sigma Tau, Delta Zeta, Alpha Sigma Alpha.

    Frostburg has a big Greek scene, but I strongly advise anyone who's interested in it not to join an off-campus one. They have a horrible reputation for violent and abusive hazing and I heard absolutely awful things from violent abuse to sexual harrassment and rape to stranding pledges in the middle of the woods at night in the snow. Most of the on campus ones are lovely, though.

    Although I'm not in Greek Life, from what I've witnessed, they treat each other like family. They stick together and they have a bond with each other.
