College Junior

Campus Strictness: I don't pay much attention school policies and I don't bother to read them. However, I can say that the school isn't too strict.

4 College Junior

Campus Dining: Campus dining is actually quite good. There are many places to sit with your friends and eat, but if the cafeteria is packed, and there aren't any more places, there is an upstairs available which is most of the times never packed. There are variety of foods that are available, but I am not in the dining halls much because my two favorite restaurants are not included on campus, Chipotle and El Pollo Sobroso.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: Well, financial aid will help you get things done as soon as possible, but they won't actually help you get the aid. However, if you are the type to get things done on your own, then it is great.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: The girls are smart and HOT and most of them are quite nice. However, the guys are more friendly and they seem to be cooler and be more willing to help you if you need something.

College Junior

Nightlife: I have to attend a party, but I have heard great things about them. From what I was told, the best parties are after home football wins.

College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: We have off-campus housing, but I do not live in it. So I can speak on it, but from what my friends tell me, it's cool.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The professors are usually great and they are here if you need or want to see them even tough most of the times, they have no student to come and see them. They usually are always here during their hours. The courses can be a bit rigorous, but if you come see your professor when you need help and you stay on top of things, everything should be fine.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The value of a degree from this school is great. I think that for me choosing to attend medical school after I obtain my BA in Chemistry will be talking in great consideration since I will graduate from this school with a high GPA. So the quality of this school is awesome.

3 College Junior

Facilities: I do not spend much time on campus. However, while on campus, the environment is cool and chilly. We do have interesting facilities and athletic centers, and events to keep students entertained and off the stress obtained from books.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I guess the Greek life is okay. It doesn't really affect the social atmosphere of the campus. It is hard to notice that we even have a Greek life on campus. I mean whether they are here or not, it is indifferent. Non Greeks view Greeks as regular students.

Majors: It's quite tough to find internships for either the summer or during school. However, we do have a building on campus that is just here to help students find internships, but due to my majors being chemistry and Physics, I have yet to find one being there for a year already.

College Junior

Majors: I have never had an internship. However, I did, then I picture it as a great thing that will of course help in my career in the future.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I don't see many safety issues being challenged on campus. Maybe it is due to the fact that Campus police is around the corner.

College Junior

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I don't live on campus. I am not aware of sexual assaults.

5 College Junior

Academics: The workload is heavy, but the knowledge acquired is priceless.

5 College Junior

Academics: Geology is a major with small classes and all the students know each other. Because of this, we have great study and lab groups.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: I don't live on campus and am not a traditional student, thus many of the questions do not pertain to me.

5 College Junior

Facilities: I think the campus is beautiful and I love being there. I worked as a Student lab technician for the Geology department and the labs were great.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: My professors have been great. I have learned more than I could ever imagine.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: There are many resources offered.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: College Park has much to do as well as being in close proximity to Washington D.C.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are so many places to eat off campus

The University of Maryland, College Park is paradise compared to some schools across America. Most students who join the campus community stay awhile, and some don’t want to leave, even after being there four or even five years. It’s universities like this that have contributed to the popular expression of college being "four of the best years of your life." From students' first year on campus to their final days leading up to graduation, students’ academic, personal, physical, professional, and social lives come together to prepare them for the real world. Many alumni look back and agree that, even if they could, they wouldn’t change a thing about their overall experience at UMCP.

There are also students who can’t wait to get out by the time graduation rolls around. But mark these words: there often comes a day when those new alumni miss the days of basking in the sun on McKeldin Mall, recalling the memories of sharing so many special moments with their friends for life. The best news of all is that, after graduation, students really never have to leave Maryland because they will always be a “Terp for Life!”
