    Frostburg is a cheap school, but it's not all that. Sometimes I think Frostburg is asking for more money than what they deserve. It seems like the faculty has budget cuts every year.

    This is definitely a cheap college, and if it's worth it or not depends on what you do while you're here. If you come here and take advantage of your opportunities, graduate as soon as you can, challenge yourself, and act like a responsible, mature college student, then you will definitely get an education just as good as the education people recieve at College Park, UMBC, Penn State, and Virginia Tech, and you will save way more money than they did. Frostburg may not have a name that is as well known as the aforementioned schools do, but that doesn't matter at all for your undergraduate studies. If you come here and do what you're supposed to do, not only would you have saved more money than students from the aforementioned schools, but you will have access to the same graduate school programs and jobs as graduates of those or any college institution will.

    I am a regional student so I was in between the Out-Of-State and In-State prices but it was still cheaper to go here then In-State. I'm from Pittsburgh, Pa.

    I am very happy with the education I got, but the location made me extremely depressed. I would never return even if tuition was free.
