3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The professors are usually great. Alway edger to help the students. Depending on the class, sometimes the class sizes are small and other times that are very large lectures. The classrooms themselves though, are a bit old and small.(But i believe they are currently renovating)

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: There are a lot of different networks and clubs you can join that can help with internships and jobs. There are also a lot of associations that work with alumni, help find jobs and ask questions

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I only took the online sexual course but other then that, it hasn't been mentioned much. There isn't much talk so I don't know if the school is taking sexual misconduct the way they should be

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Security to enter the buildings are very secure. You need to use the key multiple times to get to the floor. The bad side is that the rooms and closets are very small. The bathrooms are average but only have a few stalls so waiting is a must. And some of the halls do not have air conditioning.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life holds a lot of socials and are a big part of the university. But I don't know much more then that because I am not very involved.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Students get free tickets to the games! The school is very into the football team and there is school spirit all over the campus during football season. But not just football. Basketball and soccer and also very important to UMD.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Everyone on campus is very friendly. If anyone new comes and doesn't know directions, everyone is also helping. What makes this school unique is testudo. It's amazing now everyone is so involved with the mascot.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: A wide variety of classes are offered and class size varies greatly as well. Mostly all professors are helpful and easy to understand.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are so many students who have on campus jobs and love what they do!

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: A lot of work by the school and its health center went into informing students about the dangers of sexual assault and are currently trying to prevent it.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I loved my residence hall and made a lot of great friends in a small space.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The parties are a lot of fun and sometimes I see them doing things around campus but they aren't known so much for their good deeds as they are for their bad ones.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The games are fun to watch and support school spirit!

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Such a great place to prosper and learn about academics and about yourself!

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I love Maryland. It's so diverse, that I feel like I have the UN right here on campus. The courses are challenging but very relevant and the professors are quite the experts. I love the fact at the Shady Grove campus I have more of one-on-one connection with my professor as they average class size is about 33-35 students.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I live one of the best areas for jobs. So I know that I will have a lot of opportunities flying at as soon as I graduate. I also know that I can work in any industry i want that matches up with degree even though it might be different.

5 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: That is one of my biggest concerns my parents had for me. But here at Maryland, I have never felt safer in my life. and if something does happen, I know the issue will be taken care of with the utmost care.

5 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: I've never seen anyone get so excited even though we may not win the game. The Maryland student body are just so enthusiastic about every pass, toss, kick, hit and dunk. I usually leave every game with a sore throat because I am able to feed off the energy those I am surrounded by. I am not the biggest sports fan, but when I am at Terrapin game, I am not afraid to support my team.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Because they are experts or have field experience, they are able to provide us with real-life situations and how they went about to solve it. They offer us great insight as to what my future career is like.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I don't play sports but I love watching

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Good experience so far. Looking forward to semester

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Robert H Smith business school at UMD is considered one of the top business schools in the country, ranking 10th. But with that comes hard work.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: The newer apartments for off campus is the better alternative to on campus that sometimes don't even have air conditioning.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: The students that participate seem to love the social interactions but I have also heard some bad stuff about not being up to date.

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!”
