4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I would choose this school all over again because it made me feel welcomed and loved. I felt like I was home. I met new friends that I can now call family and I learned so much than I ever learned before. The curriculum is amazing an I am sure that I can get a great job after graduation.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Safety and security are great on campus, they have blue phones all of ever campus so we can call for help if we ever need it. We always get emails alerting us if a sexual assault has occured, or a burgulary. Which I very much admire, because we see how frequently this happens on campus and it makes us feel like we're in the know. I feel pretty safe walking on campus at night, of course I always look over my shoulder but I feel safe.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Considering all the networking event the school has I want to say the prospects are good. But i've personally never really paid attention to any of those events

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My experiences with courses last semester were pretty good. I had 5 classes, and only one of them was a lecture which containted about 100+ this was my ENES 210 which I enjoyed very much and was my favorite. My second largest class with about 30+ people was my GVPT 100 class which was okay, but not what I was expecting.We learned alot of stats and how to theorize, but I didn't enjoy that. The rest of classed were pretty small averaging about 14-25 people. The quality of each course was pretty good, it definitely served its purpose. Honestly the professors were great as well, I'd always heard horror stories about professors but mine were lovely and always reached out to me.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Personally housing is great for me, because fortunately I was placed in a great hall. Queen Annes, I have a triple and my roomates are sweet and our entire floor is pretty close with one another. Are rooms are huge, and our floor is always pretty clean including the restrooms, However I know it's not like that everywhere I've visited some dorms where they have pipes in their rooms, no space, and dirty restrooms, and showers with no curtains!! However the social scence at every dorm is pretty lively. Being placed at Queen Annes all my classes were in a 3-8 minute proximity from my classes which were great. The housing process was easy, I didnt find any difficulties.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I don't know much about the greek life on campus. I hear about it, but never pay much attention.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Im not much of a sports fan, but the energy with sports on campus is always at an all time high. We have spirit fridays were students dress in their school colors for a game. I dont think Maryland did too well with football this year, but I do know that the basketball team is performing better. The stadiums are always packed and you barely see anyone walking atround, thats how you know when a game is going on

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I joined a professional fraternity in order to get a good mix of social life while also maintaining my GPA. However, greek life does not dominate the school by any means. It is there if you are interested in it, but there are many other things you can get involved in.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Our football program is not the greatest in the country and the games get pretty boring to watch, especially when we keep losing. However, our basketball and soccer teams and ridiculously good anf the games are always packed with a huge crowd.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There really is a place for everyone at UMD.

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!”
