4 College Freshman

Administration: They do their job very well.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: Some people I know love the financial aid and others don't like it too much. In my opinion, UMD isn't really known for giving out a lot of financial aid, but will give a little.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: There are many options, but some foods aren't good

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I commute so I cannot really rate this subject

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Some good and some bad places, range in prices too. A lot of houses around campus usually house students and they're pretty cheap if you have a lot of roommates.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Everyone likes to party and frats typically take the lead on that. Most enjoyable experiences were at house parties though and everyone is usually pretty safe and doesn't cause a lot of problems so it's pretty good for experience.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Good every once and awhile, but it's costly since you can't use a dining plan/points for it. No student discounts either.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Not too strict if you don't break any of the big rules/don't give them a reason to write you up.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The financial aid they give isn't a lot and scholarships are really hard to receive.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Dining hall food is tolerable, but gets old quickly and sometimes you're overcharged for meals and it's easy to run out of points if you're not careful.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Typical experience, social atmosphere if you make it so.

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!”
