What Students Are Saying

3.44 Average Rating
FSU is considered to be a party school, but it just depends on what sort of work ethic you have and what you want to do with your life. Every school is a party school, so don't choose a school based on its reputation but rather the education you can get out of it. There are more than a hundred things you can do just on campus that don't involve parties.
Brittany from Clearville, PA
Some tips that I have for prospective students would be to one: don't choose a school on its reputation. Focus on academics and school work. Frostburg is known as a party school but it depends on the person. Secondly, ask around about teachers because every teacher is not the same and many have different teaching styles. Lastly, when you do attend the school try to join as many organizations as you can. The school has many activities and groups and the school is really big on diversity.
Krystal from Fort Washington, MD
Dorms aren't a big hit. Most students move into their own apartment as soon as possible. Also, Greek life (sororities and fraternities) are a major part of the life at Frostburg, but do not let that pressure you into joining one if it's not for you.
Marissa from Lavale, MD
Your academic experience is what you make of it, if you are determined to party and goof around then it matters not what school you go to as the experience will be essentially the same everywhere. In other words, don't worry about the reputation of the school you attend as your intent is more important. If your aim is to get a quality education at a great price then FSU is for you.
Simone from Middletown, MD
Great place to choose to attend. Variety of ethnic backgrounds here. Tutoring is free.
Cameron from Clinton, MD
If you can apply for the honors program, do it. It is well worth the extra work. Early registration, free event tickets, and more come with being honors. Plus the honors students are amazing to know.
Jessey from Waldorf, MD
Join as many organizations as possible, it will enriching your experience, plus excellent networking opportunities.
Edwina from Columbia, MD
