Academically, Frostburg State University is a good school for preparing one in many different fields. The teachers are highly qualified, and the classes are taught mostly by teachers, not teachers' assistants. There are two major things that pull my recommendation for the school down, though. First, as a semester unfolds, the parties become easier and easier to find on and off campus. While they have available to them a chance at a good education, many students find themselves attending parties because of the remote location of the school and the lack of other things to do. Secondly, this time of year, the weather is terrible. It snows/sleets/hails constantly, and the college does not close unless they receive several feet of snow. So, if you are a focused individual, interested in getting a good education, Frostburg might meet your needs. However, if you are easily distracted, you might want to attend a school that is located in a less remote area.
High Point is located in an area of Maryland that is culturally and socioeconomically diverse. The students who attend the school come from many different walks of life, backgrounds, and even countries, and the experience of being around such a diverse group of people prepares students for the world they will soon enter as adults. The teachers who work there do an extraordinary job of working with students both on an academic and personal level to ensure healthy development in both areas. As a former student and a former teacher, I would definitely recommend High Point to anyone who is looking to give their child(ren) a great education and start to life outside of school.
Middle school is a time of great change in a child's life, and attending a school like MLK, Jr Middle School is one of the things that could make this time an easier one that prepares a child for high school and beyond. The teachers are highly qualified, the student body is diverse, and the administration is very supportive of both the teachers and the parents. Many of the teachers have been at the school for numerous years, and the current principal is a former teacher. In my experience, everyone there is willing to work with you to get your child the best education possible.
Recently, I had to rent a car when mine was totaled, and the entire experience with those at Enterprise was as pleasant as could be expected given the circumstances. The car I rented from them was top of the line, and the associates I had to deal with were very friendly and helpful. When my insurance company was going to stop paying for the rental car after 1.5 weeks, one of the women who worked there gave me her name and told me to have the insurance company call her to straighten out the situation. After a few weeks of renting the car, I was contacted by another person who worked there to see if I was interested in buying one of their cars at a much lower price than blue book. Even though I couldn't afford their vehicles, the person was very nice and even answered some questions I had. I will definitely return to this business if I need a rental car in the future.
I have visited this auto parts store on several occasions, and I have always felt a little let down by the experience. I have had trouble finding the items that I need on multiple visits, and the sales associates are not usually very helpful. I would recommend visiting the store if you are in great need of something you know they carry, but I wouldn't suggest going there if you need help finding something less common.
I spent all four years of my undergraduate career at the University of Maryland Baltimore County campus. The professors there are highly qualified, the classes are very small once you get passed some basic 100 level courses, and the campus is very quiet. While studying, I lived on campus, and I was very happy with the arrangements. Parties can be found on the weekend, but they are not so abundant that they are a problem. The campus is also very safe, and they are constantly adding to it. The biggest problem with attending school here is the price. A college education anywhere is not cheap, but UMBC seems to be on the high side. Overall, I would recommend attending school here.
Spicknalls Farmer's Market is a locally owned business that carries quality produce for a good price. They carry a good variety of fruits and vegetables for about the same prices as at grocery stores, but the quality is always so much better than you would get at Giant, Food Lion, or Mars. Also, during special times of the year, you can come in and pick strawberries or pumpkins right from the patch. I would not go anywhere else for quality fruits and vegetables.
When I returned from my honeymoon in Hawaii, I took my 13 rolls of film to Ritz Camera for processing. I was very happy with the results of their film processing. In Ritz style, a white border was added to each picture, and that always makes pictures look classier. The sales associates were also very helpful when I had questions about a lens for my husband's camera. I will definitely return to this Ritz Camera for future film processing.
Home Goods is a discount store for kitchen, bathroom, and other items used for everyday living. It could easily be compared to Ross or Marshalls, except that it does not carry clothing. One of the things I really like is that every trip there is a new experience. They do not sell the same thing every week, so you never know what will be available when you visit. However, the quality of some of their items is not the best. Some of the furniture they have is missing knobs or has marks from other items that have rubbed up against them, but they are still priced very high. I have been happy with some of the items I have gotten, but other items have broken very soon after purchasing them. The store does permit returns, but it is a hassle to have to return them. So, if you don't mind taking a risk, it's a fun place to shop, and you can get good deals on some things.
I had been taking my prescriptions other places for years when my doctor suggested going to Giant instead because they often have lower prices. To my surprise, Giant carried all of my prescriptions at a much lower price than I had been paying. Even with insurance, I was able to save money by switching all my prescriptions to Giant. When I had a problem with one of my other places not giving enough information for a prescription, the pharmacist made things much easier for me by calling the other store to straighten things out. They also are very quick in filling prescriptions, so I can drop off my prescriptions, do my shopping, and then pick up my medication on my way out. I would definitely recommend Giant's Pharmacy.
