What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University itself is amazing. Some of the buildings are on the older side, especially the dorms on North Campus. I would say about half of the dorms have AC which is annoying if you get one without, but definitely bearable. If you are going here for math, engineering of computer science, you are in luck! They have super nice and new buildings. Personally, I love this campus and can't imagine being anywhere else.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Maryland is the epitome of your typical American university, but that's one of the things I like the most about it. Even though there are tens of thousands of students, it really does feel like a tight knit community. The relationships that I have built and the things I have learned so far will stick with me for a lifetime.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It’s a very large and diverse campus that offers many opportunities for a variety of students. However, there are some set backs with policies and on campus facilities that hold me back from giving the university a higher rating. On the academics side, there are many great professors that are very helpful and accommodating to students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, University of Maryland-College Park is a great school. It is indeed a big school and can be difficult to run into people you know. One thing that had attracted me to this school was the diversity in the student body. Being a women of color who is from a multiracial background, I was able to find people who were similar to me and those who were different. There wasn't a time where I felt alone or out of place because there are so many people of different backgrounds, ethnicities and origins. What makes UMD a great school is its location. UMD is near a major highway as well as the metro. Additionally, it is pretty close to Washington D.C. and Baltimore, making it convenient to access jobs and internships. One thing that I do have an issue with is with certain faculty. So far, all faculty and professors have been extremely nice; however, some aren't exactly teaching the students. I know every college has a few professors who are just teaching for a job and not for the benefit of the student body. However, to put it nicely, if you are teaching a major course, such as STEM related courses or any of the humanities, please be more invested in teaching or work on explaining certain concepts better. Just lecturing is not going to help the students understand the concepts. Aside from academics, UMD does have social/party atmosphere. So if you are worried about not making friends or finding that friend group you are comfortable with, don't worry. There is a group out there for you. Just don't sit in your dorm all day in isolation. However, as an introvert, I haven't attended any parties yet because of the stories I hear about them and what people do. No, I don't find drinking until I black out appealing. No, I don't want to try any "substances." No, I don't want to be in a crowded room with all these sweaty people around me who apparently don't have any good personal hygiene. No, I don't want to hook up with some random person I just met. All these partying aspects are not appealing and I wish there were more activities to do on campus. If there are, they should be better advertised and broadcasted so students can be aware about what events are happening. Other than those two things, UMD is an amazing school that has a good balance of everything.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

University of Maryland is a gorgeous school. Personally, the STEM programs and opportunities (particularly engineering) are very helpful with not only making sure you understand everything well, but also giving you pointers on what employers are looking for, so you can be sure to have a leg-up on some other applicants in the future. Also, the campus is enormous so no matter who you are or where you are from, you can always find a place to plug in.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, I enjoy the school. In terms of its academics, types of classes offered, and ability to provide a great education, it ranks pretty well! I'm always satisfied with my schedule and the people I get to meet in my classes. There are plentiful opportunities as well to get involved with clubs, work, volunteering, you name it! The main gym is really nice too, providing lots of machines and clean spaces to workout.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I very much enjoyed my time at the University of Maryland, though there were somethings they can improve. The academics were pretty decent but vary from department to department. I think, especially STEM classes could do better in following educational research for teaching methods. This is not a unique problem to UMD however. The president needs to leave, as he keeps dealing with issues poorly, including racialized crimes on campus and student-athletes death. But the teachers are great, for the most part, there are TONS of things to do all the time. People are really nice, and being so close to DC national labs and suchs leads to literally thousands of opportunities for shcoalrships, interships, and research experiences.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Maryland - College Parke has been absolutely amazing. The location of the school is about 30-40 minutes away from home which is super convenient since I am not far. There are many friendly people. Everyone is very generous and kind.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

A garbage university focusing more on making profit from out of state students and pursuing endless half-baked marketing initiatives that ultimately pours more of its money into sports and athletics than academics could dream of. How about instead of building a third sports facility for a university that is attempting to be a "public ivy," the students of Maryland are actually served? kthx
