Academic Residential Program @ Sowers Hall
Sowers Hall is home to STEM Scholars, a unique academic residential community for STEM freshmen designed to jumpstart sucess in STEM majors at Frostburg State Universities. STEM Scholars have access to additional resources and opportunities for academic success that other freshmen will not have. Students interested in STEM fields of study face many challenges. STEM majors are among the most challenging at FSU. Living in a STEM community will help you build a solid foundation in STEM areas so that they are prepared to both live and work in the 21st Century. The STEM Scholars program is made possible by an Opportunity Grant from the FSU Foundation, Inc., which in turn is supported by the generosity of the alumni, faculty, staff, and friends of Frostburg State University.
