Frostburg actually wasn’t even on my radar until I visited it my junior year of high school and that day I fell in love with all this campus had to offer. I liked the smaller feel of the campus and class sizes which would give me a chance to get to know my professors and classmates on a more personal level. Plus I loved the scenery and weather that comes with the mountain environment.
