4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Love my classes and the professors/TAs are nice. Students are nice. Class sizes can be big but you still learn a lot.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Alumni network is strong, especially in technical fields like engineering, computer science, and natural sciences.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: A decent amount of crime but to be expected in the area. I don't feel unsafe though.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Dorms are decent quality. Most dorms aren't too far from classes considering the size of the campus.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Football team is pretty abysmal.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Classes are really great and inspiring. Meet a lot of intelligent and driven people.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The school is amazing and provides so much to do. The school is committed to designing spaces students can really make their own.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: We're so close to DC, it is so easy to get a job with the agency, headquarters, or business you want.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: The police are amazing near campus. You can remain fairly safe as long as you don't walk alone at 4am, but you wouldn't do that at home, why would you do it here? The buses run till 3am and there is a door to door bus service that runs till 8am. We have so many options for police escort service, there is no reason not to feel safe

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Depends where you life. Oakland Hall, Prince Frederick Hall, and the newly renovated Cambridge Hall are amazing. All the others are built in the 1970's or earlier and need some updating.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: Most are very homogeneous, but Frat Row and Sorority Row are on one side of campus across from Route One so Greek life doesn't take over campus. They kind of have their own space.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Our basketball games are crazy because our team is good. Even the smallest games completely sell out. We don't do as well in football so the spirit and the attendance are down.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: A huge school with a ton of school pride, but once you get here the school does a great job of making it feel small and connecting you with some great friends.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: If I could choose again, I would attend an hbcu.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am not a part of any fraternity or sorority so it is hard for me to comment on.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I am not personally a part of any athletics at my school, but I know that they are greatly appreciated by the students.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The University of Maryland, College Park is diverse, exciting, and a great place to be for school. I have made new friends, learned new things, and joined clubs and organizations that are expanding my experience greatly. Although the first semester was tough and I was nervous, it got better with the great help my advisors gave me.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I have no connections to Greek life so i could not say much about it.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: We have so much pride and there is no doubt about it. Even the staff holds an immense amount of pride

4 College Freshman

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!”
