Enjoy concerts, festivals, and the monthly late night event, a themed late-night party in the Lane University Center, Frostburg's student union. FSU recently hosted music sensations Megan Thee Stallion and B.o.B. as well as comedian Chris Tucker and American Idol star Daughtry.

Connect with peers who have similar interests or step outside your comfort zone with any of FSU’s 90+ clubs and organizations. Our fraternities and sororities and service programs offer a wide variety of ways to network, give back and build your résumé.  

FSU is home to 22 NCAA Division II intercollegiate team sports in regional and national conferences. You can also participate in club and intramural sports and take advantage of the Cordts P.E. Center facilities and the Lane University Center’s fitness center. Activities for Life (AFL) also offers non-credit activity classes such as zumba, Pilates and water aerobics.

Enjoy delicious food from venues across campus, such as the Chesapeake Dining Hall’s all-you-care-to-eat buffet and the Lane University Center’s Appalachian Station food court, featuring Chick-fil-A, Moe’s Southwest Grill, Starbucks and other great eateries.

Make yourself at home with a selection of housing options including both traditional residence halls and apartment-style suites.

While you’re here, be sure to step outside and explore the amazing Allegheny Mountains of Western Maryland, where you can study nature (like our Wildlife & Fisheries or Recreation & Parks Management students) or just enjoy the great outdoors while snowboarding, skiing, whitewater rafting, biking, hiking and more.
