UMD offers so many resources for their students and the students here are all filled with school spirit. There's so many things to do on campus and off campus so there's never a dull moment. Most of the staff are eager to help out and are generally very kind. Housing here is decent but some buildings don't have AC and it's a real pain during the first few months of the school year. Professors could be a hit or miss but TAs usually make up for a bad professor. UMD is filled with construction everywhere. It seems like it will never end.

UMD is great because of the students and location, but the administration is rather lackluster. Basically, if you have a problem with your education, you are on your own. With over 40k students, advisors have no idea what they are doing, required classes can sometimes be impossible to get, some professors have a limited grasp of the English language, the bus systems are useless, etc. However, the students here are truly awesome. It definitely is not a school full of rich kids, though you'll find the ivy-rejects here just like any other school. The campus is beautiful if you can handle the construction and the career opportunities here truly are the best. Just keep in mind that you won't get the hand-holding of a small university when it comes to study abroad, financial aid, etc. Classes are hard and many are offered, yet UMD allows classes way too big to be beneficial to learning and most of the time your TA does your grading.
