What is your overall opinion of this school?

Mcdaniel College is a pretty decent school. They are really focused on student activity, involvement, diversity, and inclusion. The thing that I like the most is how personable McDaniel can be. This ranges from professors to sometimes even janitors. As a student of color, the surrounding community can be intimidating and my friends and I often feel looked at and judged while we are out an about (especially at the hospital).

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love McDaniel. If you are looking for a smaller school that has a little bit of everything, this is the school for you. They are constantly looking to improve as well, so each student always has an opportunity to voice their opinions. The whole campus vibe is great (including both students and faculty). The professors are great, I have no complaints. They truly care and take the time to get to know each student. Overall, I give this school a 10/10.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

McDaniel College can be found in a small town called Westminster within the state of Maryland. It is a liberal arts college that encourages students to express their own opinions and ideas about various subjects. I do enjoy it being a small campus, it makes it easier to get to know all the building and places outside of campus. The neighborhood near the college is not the best and can be dangerous in certain areas that is known for its drugs and crimes. The campus outside is absolutely gorgeous. Most of the campus facilities are one of the friendliest people I had met. The professors take their time to know everyone in their class and you can really get to know them on an individual basis. There are various clubs and programs, which makes it easy to get to know people. The food at the college is bad. The dining hall does allow you to eat, how much as you want but closes early. There are financial challenges. Although, the school does give out a lot of scholarships to most of the students I talked to. But without any financial aid, the private college tuition is very expensive for what they have to offer. Especially, when it comes to the residence hall that are in bad shape and some lacking air conditioning. It does not have a diverse student body, as a minority, it was challenging to connect with other. I would strongly consider other people who are planning to attend to this school to visit the campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

While attending McDaniel College, I once told my parents that it felt like home. It was here I discovered my passion for teaching. McDaniel College was and still is a place that creates a feeling of belonging. I loved this school so much that my daughter will be attending McDaniel College in the fall of 2019.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

In my first semester of being on campus, I can honestly say that it's all right. It's not the best, but it's not the worst. My biggest problem is the dorm. It doesn't matter what day or what time it is, someone is always getting drunk and rowdy. The school has "quiet hours" and they say that they enforce them, so they either don't or the people just don't care about a warning. Things usually calm down around 2-3 in the morning, usually. It also depends on which dorm you live in, I can only attest to the one I currently reside in. The shower is always full of hair: the wall, the floor, everything covered in other people's hair. And the bathroom stalls aren't any better. The school has people cleaning the bathrooms every day, but it doesn't look like they do anything. They either do the bare minimum or these girls really know how to dirty a bathroom because it's always messy. Most days it's disgusting, but sometimes you'll get lucky on the weekend, their either still partying or too hung over to even get out of bed. The weekends are nice because the campus is pretty empty. People are either at the weekly sports events or hung over and sleeping until the next part starts. All in all, the school is fine. Great programs and academics. Everything is spaced out over the town and. apparently, everybody drives. Freshman aren't allowed to have cars unless you put yourself in this lottery to have your car on campus, so I use Lyft, but it's way more expensive there than it is in a regular city. You'll go broke fast if you use Lyft too much.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a good school academically, and also given the class-ratio size, it's good value too. People at the school are very active in clubs and current events. Productions at the theater are always up to par. However, given where it is... Safety could be an issue. The campus is very nice and has very well-kept facilities (aside from the gym), but being located in downtown Westminster, MD, is not doing the college any favors. You basically have to stay on-campus at all times. Lots of drug activity in Westminster. Good luck finding good nice off-campus housing nearby.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love McDaniel. It is an older school, so that can have its drawbacks, but it is rich with tradition. The environment of this campus is so friendly. everyone is here to help and make friends. We can be competitive, but we are still kind and polite to our peers. Professors are almost always available and they are always want to help you succeed. Most professors love their job and are doing it not for the money, but for the students. Sports are a very big part of campus. Our football games are always a big deal and women's soccer is very competitive. Overall, I love this place and would not have chosen any where else. It is definitely my home away from home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

McDaniel College is a wonderful school to go to for a liberal arts education. The teachers are extremely qualified and are usually at the top of their fields. I feel like I learn a lot in classes. The dorms and cafeteria, however, are third class, if not worse. With the cost of living around 4000 dollars on campus, you would expect the dorms to be more upgraded. The dorms are usually stinking, for no reason, the bathroom is unhygienic and the showers are even worse, with the occasional roach crawling around. The cafeteria's food is usually either undercooked or rotten, with a rare visit from a roach once again. I fell that my biggest gripe with the school is with all the money we put forth, there is nothing coming back to the student body. Instead, the college charges as much as possible, while spending the least amount they can.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a small college with a fair amount of activities. There is always something to do. The campus is small and beautiful. The food from Glar is not very satisfying and I occasionally go to town to buy "real" food, but Overall I love McDaniel College.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a small school but because it is so small the class sizes are amazing. However, the school is mostly Caucasian as well as the area. Although there are not much diversity, the campus is very LGBTQ+ friendly and expresses that proudly. The campus is very welcoming overall and I feel comfortable being there.
