What the students are saying about:

University of Maryland (7 of 10)

University of Maryland

Though students sometimes complain that the university's home of College Park is unsafe, they speak very highly of the academics and research opportunities available. One senior says, "Academics at UMD are good. The diploma you will walk away with four years from now will be more valuable than one 4 years earlier. The caliber of students, faculty and programs on campus continues to improve. Recently, UMD has been a hot school and admission standards have become more intense. This campus has a lot of talent and is a great place to get your undergraduate degree." Lee, a Bio major, discusses the perks of being at a large university: "It's a big school, but with a big school comes many, many opportunities. From clubs to fun activities to research, there is always something great you can find out about UMD."
