4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: We haven't had many cases of crime but like with any public place, there are bound to be situations of theft or crime. I feel fairly safe. As long as people are vigilant and use their common sense when it comes to walking alone at night or in unsafe areas, then there should be no problems.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I really enjoy the school spirit that we have at UMD. Everyone is usually out for the football games and adorned in full school attire. From face paint, to painted bodies, you can definitely see it all at one of the football games. there are also a lot of clubs and intramurals that are provided and so everyone can find something that they enjoy doing.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: I think that the campus police are very good. We have a program for people that are walking back to their dorms at night where there is an escort service. If all colleges don't have this, they definitely should.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am not in a sorority because I am too busy for them but they seem cool. I think it's great that people can form bonds like that and power to them.

4 College Freshman

Campus Dining: I think the food it good, definitely better than some other colleges. I am not involved in the dining plan but I like the vegetarian and vegan options and the all you can eat diners and the best.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: I don't really go to parties because they're not something I enjoy. But from I hear, they aren't that great.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I was fairly pleased with the amount that I got, but from what I hear, other people didn't receive that much.

3 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: our athletes are greatly supported through wins and losses. school spirit is great.

4 Recent Alumnus

Majors: program chooses its students when they apply to the university. if program does not choose a student, the student has the opportunity to apply to the program as they begin their studies.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Dining: better than a lot of other schools

College Sophomore

Majors: I've never had/looked for an internship or job through the school. But the business school seems to help upperclassmen a lot.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: It's not hard to find good looking people anywhere on campus. People are typically pretty friendly (guys more so than girls). Two things I've noticed: everyone is really into fitness so you don't see many overweight people on campus, and guys tend to run on the shorter side.

Local Atmosphere: College Park basically sucks, but we come to know and love it. The campus is super nice, and getting to DC is fairly easy.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Too. Many. Pizza. Places. But everyone loves them after a night out. There's some good places and you don't have to spend much money, but Route 1 could use some variety. And maybe some nicer places to eat.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: It's fine, but it gets old. You definitely learn to appreciate home cooked meals, and a good slice of pizza.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I didn't receive any aid, but a lot of my friends did receive a LITTLE. I would just say UMD is kind of stingy.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: The campus is green and beautiful. You almost forget how gross College Park is. Most facilities are super clean and aesthetically appealing. Some could use work...

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!”
