At first, I was interested in Frostburg for my academic major, but it was when I visited campus that I knew this was the school for me. I loved the community feel and the positive atmosphere here at Frostburg. Everyone that I met on my visit to the school was so nice and welcoming, which really set the bar high for other schools.
