Frostburg provides many good networking experiences for students who are looking to be proactive about their future after school. My advisor constantly keeps me updated with graduates who ended up in my field that might be good for networking.

When I was in lower-level general education classes, the class sizes were around 20-25 students. The professors were always very engaged in their subject and wanted their students to succeed. Once I started taking the upper-level classes in my Geography major, the class sizes lowered to about 8-10 people per class. The professors are always very knowledgable and try to help students succeed as much as possible.

While Frostburg is located in a very rural area, the university does a great job of involving its students and the community surrounding the school in cultural events and celebrations. Over the last three years, I have learned a great deal about professionalism and working hard. I have been pushed to succeed while attending Frostburg and I have found many mentors that I look up to. One of the events I most look forward to when I go back to school for the year is the block party that the University hosts on Main Street. The block party showcases all of the student groups on campus and all the resources that are available to the students and the community. This helps all the new students learn the faces of leaders on campus and people they can go to for anything they need while attending Frostburg. I have made the best memories of my life and have learned more than I ever imagined I would while attending Frostburg State University.
