5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My overall experience at this school has been good. UMD has a wide variety of interesting courses available to take. Also the professors seem really knowledgable on the topics that they are teaching, and they are also ready to help when needed. The class styles aren't that different from high school, it's just that's there's more people in one section.The discussion classes, even though i don't like going to them are vital for understanding the material, they give each student a chance to get something explained better and to et more background information on the topic discussed in lecture.

Athletics: UMD athletic department is amazing. The fan support is huge and very involved, and supportive when our teams do both bad and well. THe sports teams at Maryland are the best, our basketball, football, baseball,ect teams are great teams with a lot of talent. At every game every Terp fan shows Terp pride and the stadiums and Xfinity Center are never silent.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I've had some great professor and some great courses. The quality of the courses is great. They provide up-to-date information of current research and are always open-minded when teaching. The class sizes vary depending on the kind of class you take. Science classes are usually large whereas english/humanity classes tend to be smaller.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There seems to be a lot of opportunities on campus are people looking for these things.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms are okay. They are very average unless you get into the really new dorms such as Oakland/Prince Federick. Other than that, the dorms are small, cramped. The bathrooms are very old. However, the place is usually clean since there are always workers every shift.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I haven't explored the greek life, however from an outsider's perspective it seems like they do a lot for the community. There are always fundraisers, performances, activities for good causes. While there are some snobby frats and sororities,there are also some friendly and educational ones out there. The housing for Greek life is huge here, however it seems a bit complicated to get into.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Since my school is part of the Big 10, athletics are a huge thing here. There are always games to attend to, and the turnout is always great. Everyone is filled with Maryland pride here and it is great. The school spirit is off the charts.

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!”
