Find Your Program


When I first toured Frostburg, I felt a connection to the university that I had failed to make with the other universities I had visited. There was a certain pride in the air and everything on campus just gave off a vibe that said ‘Yes, this is Frostburg and this is where I needed to be!’

Types of Aid


The faculty gave me the tools, space and support I needed to step outside of acting. Through that opportunity, I could also direct and produce my original work. I wouldn’t be where I am today if they hadn’t given me the support they did during my time at Frostburg.
