I love this school! Definitely a big change from high school but UMD is a lot of fun and the academics feel rewarding. There are a lot of opportunities to have a social life and there's a club for literally anything that someone would want to do., even squirrel watching

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Honestly, while there are a lot of improvements that can be made in terms of money decisions, such as what construction is really worth it, UMD is honestly a pretty school. In my search for schools, I wanted a place with an abundance of opportunities, like many study abroad programs, an outrageous number of clubs and a great business program, which UMD has. And the diner food isn't that bad so I'm not complaining.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

University of Maryland-College Park is a very nice school to be at. So far most of the people I've met are nice and very passionate about world issues. THe teachers are all diverse, each with a different teaching style, some better than most. But that's something you can find at any college. There is a variety of food in Campus Dining Halls, catering to anyone's dietary needs. But they're sub-par to me since 'm a picky eater and a lot of the food they serve isn't what I usually eat.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think the school itself is a very prestigious university. Obviously it is not perfect but overall the academics and the social life on campus are very good. There is always something to do either during the week or weekends, or club to join to make more friends. There is a lot of diversity on campus and many different opinions.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Maryland has many desirable characteristics. The campus is beautiful, their lecture halls are world class, and they have a great reputation. I chose Maryland because of their flexibility and responsiveness from their instructors and I have not been disappointed.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a great school, plenty of opportunities for everything you could think of. As long as you moderate the number of classes you're taking, there's nothing to stop you from living your greatest life in school. There is great competition when it comes to academics as well as sports. Some people say that it can be a lot, and for many aspects, the school is even considered to be a "public ivy league" because of how much things will challenge you. But you can do it, and if you need help, there are ALWAYS people and professors looking out for you.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The school itself is on a gorgeous campus and there are things to do nearby. However, the campus atmosphere, despite encouraging inclusivity and diversity, is nothing of the sort. There are occasions where the voices of minorities are often overlooked and misconstrued. Additionally, there are students that are on the campus that focus primarily on the continued binary that is created via racial differences. The courses are helpful and interesting to a certain extent. However, not all of the teachers were meant to teach, as they can not relay the information effectively enough for students to understand. Additionally, the teacher assistants place such a high standard on the quality of work that students present that it makes it almost impossible to understand the content of the course and they don't make much of an effort to try to explain what they would like to see. Or if they try to explain it, they don't utilize simple terms that would make the concepts easier to understand. Also, if you choose to live on campus, housing is awful. The middle of the summer is sweltering and the winter is freezing. One of the apartment complexes flooded and another caught fire. The parking situation is horrendous, as they may give you a ticket for parking in the garage that you paid to park in because the department of transportation services on campus failed to process your parking permit in a sufficient amount of time. Overall, this university is not entirely meant for everyone, however, if you are offered a scholarship to attend that would be enough to offset the amount over the entirety of the four years you attend by all means go. However, if you have the option to attend another university I would recommend it but I am sure not all schools are without their own issues.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think our education system is above average and the professors are more than qualified. However, the dorms are not very good, as some of them have mold and the quality of the resources is not desirable. In general, I think this school is good because of the size and variety of activities and opportunities that are provided.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, the University of Maryland is a good school. Its academics are really good. We have good professors and continue to invest in academics by just adding a new bioengineering building, and computer science building. Also, in the last year, a new state of art learning center was built.
