What is your overall opinion of this school?

It was a great school to go to if you are looking for a big school. There isn't much to do socially if you aren't Greek. It is definitely being built up as a town, with more shops and restaurants and living situations to be involved with. In a few years I believe it will be a lovely town.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Honestly, the school lets the teachers get away with a lot of things. Teachers can choose to teach virtually if they want. The school sends out surveys for students to fill to see if they like their class. However, they do not do anything with the student opinions. Students complain a lot, but the campus turns a deaf ear. Additionally, the school does not have teaching centers for students to learn in. This makes it very difficult for the students to pass some of their classes. I do not like this university, but I attend it just to save money in state. The campus is nice, but the life underneath the school's image is awful. i am always afraid to go out at night in this school. A student was killed on campus in a race related crime. This makes it hard to trust the campus security.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love this school-the classes, people, clubs, food, the diversity and acceptance-it is a beautiful campus and I do not regret coming here, even paying out of state tuition! There is always something to do on campus for any interest, and off campus there is even more-buses to a mall, other cities, or the metro [which can take you to DC quickly!]

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I just got accepted into the ​University of Maryland-College Park for the Fall 2018 semester. I have known about UMD since I came to the school for a campus tour when I was in 7th grade for the AVID program. It was one of The Best experiences ever. Since then, UMD has always been my top choice. I love how it really gives me the whole college feel. I don't feel like I'm just going to school and then leaving, but I feel like I was made to go to that school. It's such a homey environment and I love the atmosphere. Very green, clean, and exciting.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UMD is a great school. The administrators and College Park police are very dedicated to keeping students safe. I feel that academics and social lives are very balanced. Students here are really invested in their education but still like to have fun. Everyone attends the basketball games but tailgating is more popular than actually going to a football game. There are lots of clubs and groups you can join.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UMD is a very prestige school as well as a research school, it sometimes sucks that some of the professors are here mainly for research and not actually teaching students. There are great professors, but of course its harder to register for them. Aside from academics, there are so many clubs, you are bound to find one you like and find your family, your home away from home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My freshman year was a great experience. Having all the freshman living on campus all in the same area is fantastic in terms of meeting people and interacting with people from across the world. The professors really care about the success of the students and enjoy learning about them. The facilities are all state of the art and are the same as what you find in the real world work environment.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University is great. I have met some lifelong friends. Seeing as the school is a STEM school, the academic are quite rigorous, as my first-semester GPA reflects. I was unaware of all the resources available to help me as a student and have since then brought up my GPA a significant amount. The professors are really great about helping students in traditionally challenging courses. However, if you like to eat, the dining halls leave quite a bit to be desired. This is not to say that the brand-name locations don't exceed expectations. The locations in stamp and surrounding campus have great options and pricing. The majority of residence halls are to be expected of a college campus. However, there are some newly constructed buildings that are beautiful. The off-campus housing scene is also wonderful. Overall, the school is great. As an out-of-state student, I would say it is worth the extra pennies!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think University of Maryland-College Park is a great school, but the administration needs to better prioritize funding to spend more on housing and students and less on sports facilities that are only helpful to the athletics department and the people in it. For example, I still live in a building without AC and with lead pipe issues and asbestos issues, but they just renovated one building into an entire indoor football stadium in less than a year. I don't understand why they're doing that instead of dealing with the present issues.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University is very big, close to DC. There is always something to do. Good food around, There is a lot of organizations/ clubs you can join. Its a Big Ten School so Football and Basketball are a bid deal, the rest of the sports you get some free stuff to show up like shirts or enter a raffle for ipad, etc.
