3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I did not receive any financial aid even though i applied for it.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It's not very good and there are not many options. When you live on campus you are required to get at least the minimum dining plan which is $1000 worth of food a semester. I have found it difficult to use all my points because the food isnt good and i never want to go there.

Campus Housing: Some of the buildings have air conditioning, some do not. Some are much too small for two people. The dorms are often mixed so if you're a freshman you could be put in a mostly sophomore dorm.

Health & Safety: Maryland has a good security system in that we have blue light systems so you can press a button on several blue lights if you are being followed and the security team will track it and respond. You can also call nite-ride if you need transportation at night from dorm to dorm or nearby off campus to dorm.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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!”
