At the University of Maryland, you learn so much more than just facts and truths from textbooks and lectures. While the classes are extremely informational, and the professors and T.A.s are all very knowledgeable on their subjects, the real learning goes on outside of the classroom. Their are countless non-credit lectures, shows to attend, research teams to be a part of, professors to work with one-on-one, and relationships to be made which will help you mature into a worldly human being.

  • I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    I think this school is a very good school. In my previous experiences here attending the open houses and etc. I would definitely recommend UMD. I am going to apply for sure.

  • I am researching this school and have not visited the campus

    I heard that University of Maryland, College Park, has a a great science program. I know it's a tough school to get into, but I hope I get in to this school by 2022. My grades are good so far, but I need to improve my GPA. I have a 3.5 GPA but that GPA is going to go up. I also have to work on my SAT, because this school has a high SAT score requirement. I want to get a full ride scholarship to any school of my choice. I might also join any extracurricular activities at this school so stay tuned for more information.

    UMD is a huge university filled with opportunities to get involved. There are many research and volunteering opportunities, but there are also many clubs and organizations to participate in. You can get together with others at games or stay by yourself at the many isolated places on campus.

    The student culture is vibrant and welcoming. Housing and Dining accommodations leave much to be desired but the staff is warm and friendly. Lecturers and Professors vary in quality but there are many resources available to help students succeed.

    One of the highlights of the campus tour was winning free ice cream. The tour guide asked a question about sporting events. My Dad the sports fan answered correctly and won a voucher at The Dairy.

    UMD is your stereotypical college and you'll learn to love it. Academics and social life are both great when you learn to balance them. Most of the professors are pretty awesome and you can tell they love their job.

    It definitely feels like a home away from home. Not only is the campus beautiful, but there's a multitude of unique organizations to join. No matter when our team loses, our pride is still strong.
