3 College Freshman

Greek Life: The Greeks throw a lot of the parties however they're not the be all end all for parties. They do a lot of community service and many greek organizations are geared specifically toward both STEM majors as well as others.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: At the beginning of the year the University of Maryland has events to get students acclimated to the sports life on campus by teaching them cheers and handing out T-Shirts and towels to show their support at games. While our football team hasn't done very well after switching into the Big 10, our basketball team is very highly ranked. All sports events are very well attended.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: As the University of Maryland is a very large school, one would expect that it'd be very difficult for the university to bridge the gap between the different sub-cultures who call college park their home; however, the university is very responsive to the needs of students. From the Office of Civil Rights and Sexual Misconduct constantly providing educational updates, to campus police who are able to be at any location on campus within thirty seconds, the campus is truly a safe place to not only pursue your studies, but also be yourself. Where there are gaps that the university has yet to fill, I've found that you can be sure that a one of the over 900 student groups on campus will give you a place to belong.

3 College Junior

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

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!”
