frostburg state university is a community. despite the, lately, almost constant tragedies that have befallen it, frostburg has stood strong and pulled together rather than falling apart. if, in seeking out a college, one wishes to be part of a community rather than standing alone, frostburg is the place to go.
Emily from Gaithersburg, MD
Frostburg has a nice, medium-sized campus.There are a lot of events and organizations available to students to keep the campus busy. The weather can be a little unpredictable, but its not difficult to deal with.
