4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: The night life is where the majority of the students thrive and converge together.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The town of College Park is only a college town that does not offer a living environment other than working at the University or attending the University. However, it lies right near DC which offers an abundance of choices which influenced my responses.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: The dining spots directly off campus are typical college student food consisting of pizza, subs, Mexican and asian cuisine. However, there is a DC metro stop in College Park so if students are seeking better quality cuisine they just travel the metro into DC.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The professors so far for me have been either great or terrible; however, most of the TA's are extremely helpful and do their best to help their students do well in the class.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The specific major at my school is small population wise however, receives a large amount of funding for research and multiple companies come specifically to find students in my program for internships.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The food quality is decent but the lack of variety causes the food to lose all appeal after a while.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: The students on campus are very connected to each other and it is easy to get involved with other students on campus. There are two club fairs during the year on for each semester. Nonetheless, it is always possible to find something to do when walking around the Stamp Student Union.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The Campus Police is extremely involved on campus and ensure that when on campus there is the least amount of threat possible. Furthermore, they are quick to respond to incidents without being accusatory. They patrol areas immediately of campus as well that are frequented as a part of the night life of the campus to ensure the safety of those places as well.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: The Engineering School at UMD is a LEP which means only a limited amount of students are admitted into the program. The most important criteria for admission would be SAT/ACT score and appropriate AP test scores in courses such as Calculus, Chemistry, Physics and Biology.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I enjoy my experience thus far in my specific program greatly. The professors that teach major specific courses are more knowledgable in their subject and obviously have a greater desire to spread the wealth of their knowledge onto the students in their class.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The school spirit is unlike any other university I have attended. There is not one person that does not own at least one item of clothing that has a Maryland flag upon it. The athletic facilities are great and the students take a great part in staying fit through club and inter murals.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Some of the dorms have been recently renovated/built and have many of the features that we have grown accustomed to such as air conditioning and heating. Some of the older dorms do not possess air conditioning and the heating in them is sporadic at best. However, all feature accommodations that are conducive to learning such as wifi and ethernet ports throughout all of their dorms and residential buildings.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: division 1 school with great games and teams

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: It took forever to get it once submitted fafsa.

2 College Junior

Health & Safety: I have not heard much about safety problems on-campus but when I do it is something along the lines of robbery and once I heard something about a girl being sexually assaulted in one of the buildings I used to go to rather frequently.

College Junior

Majors: I have not done an internship yet.

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!”
