A new application developed by a recent Frostburg State University graduate could strike a chord with self-taught musicians one day.
Timothy Cross of Cumberland created a program called Musicians Aid before graduating from FSU in fall 2014 when he earned a bachelor’s degree in computer science. Musicians Aid could be a blessing for aspiring musicians if fully developed, and the promise of the technology captured the attention of Silicon Valley companies at an international conference in February.
Combining biological conservation with preserving that “knowledge behind the craft” was the inspiration behind Dr. Sunshine Brosi’s latest research effort in Cherokee, N.C. – a Frostburg State course over winter break called “Field Experiences in Ethnobotany and Ecology.”
Dr. Phillip Allen and Dr. Sydney Duncan share two passions – creating a sustainable future and providing their students with high-quality learning opportunities by applying the theoretical knowledge they present in the classroom to real-world practical situations.
Together they have created a well-developed interdisciplinary project from an experiment to determine the impact on the campus environment from the use of standard pavement deicers, commonly called road salt. Joining elements from a soils class in the Department of Geography with a technical writing class in the Department of English, they construct a single, collaborative project each semester that over time is looking more deeply into road salt’s long-term environmental impact – and transforming their students’ mindset in the process.
FSU Students Given Close View of "China in Transition" Discussions
Three Frostburg students, two undergraduates and one graduate student, were among just a handful of U.S. Student Ambassadors for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) China CEO Forum held in July in Beijing, through the U.S. Virtual Trade Mission Foundation.
The U.S. delegation invited three FSU students, Jason Ascher, a political science major with a minor in leadership studies; Christopher Evanoff, an MBA student who works for PharmaCare in Allegany County as the marketing representative and assistant manager for the home medical department; and Eric Paul, a business administration major with a minor in management.
Frostburg State University assistant professor of English Andy Duncan has been named the winner of the 2012 Nebula Award for Best Novelette. This prestigious annual award goes to the best science fiction or fantasy novelette published in the United States during the previous year. Duncan won the award for his novelette, “Close Encounters.” “A Nebula Award, in any category, is the highest peer award in science fiction, and I am deeply touched and grateful to know that my fellow science fiction writers so admire what I do,” Duncan said.
