Celebrating her graduation from a psychology program at the University System of Maryland at Hagerstown on Tuesday, Danielle Donovan said she liked the university's “small-town feel” and affordability. Donovan, 23, a Williamsport High and Hagerstown Community College graduate, said she considered attending Shepherd College, but found the West Virginia school too expensive and its classes too sporadic. Studying psychology through the Frostburg State University program offered at the downtown Hagerstown USMH campus allowed her to live at home and work two part-time jobs, including one at Brook Lane Health Services that gave her practical experience, Donovan said.
