What is your overall opinion of this school?

Attending UMD can be compared to skydiving. One propels themselves head first into a world of struggle, heart attacks, and pure thrill. The academics are incredibly challenging and have most likely taken decades off of my life. I can not even convey how many times I considered dropping out, but the professors are here for students. The weekend shenanigans are some of the best moments of my life, filled with fun and thrill. And in the end, just like with skydiving, you're in a completely different place with new accomplishments under your belt.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Maryland-College Park is one of the top-ten best value colleges. It is just a short Metro ride outside Washington, D.C. and there is always something to do, whether on or off campus. There are over 300 student organizations, lots of sports teams, and so much more. Go Terps!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Like any University, students can easily rack up loans for the costs of not only tuition, but also room and board and/ or extracurriculars. Many of the students get good grades and can be intimidating. However, if you are there to learn and not mess around, this campus is great for you. The basic classes can be very big, but the classes particular to your major are small ranging from 20-30 students. The campus is diverse and supports many groups of people from all over the world. Going to a community college and transferring can be easy as well since they have programs to help you transfer. They also offer commuter buses that are free or low cost, so that students from cities like Gaithersburg do not have to pay hefty fees for room and board or commuting in their own car.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The university of Maryland was not my top choice in schools. It was a close contender but before I accepted, the University of Delaware and Clemson both held a special place in my heart. If I am being completely honest, the major selling point for the University of Maryland was simply the fact that for me it was the best in-state school. I am currently a sophomore and so far I have not regretted my decision. The University has decent food that is an all-you-can-eat style with unlimited access, a large (albeit crowded) gym, and some new buildings. Sadly some people end up with amazing dorms while others end up in awful ones with little space and no air conditioning. Some teachers are wonderful and approachable while others are rude and just make simple topics confusing. All that being said, UMD can be an amazing college to go to as long as you make the most of it and try hard in your classes.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UMD is a great school depending on your area of study. For a state school, it has amazing programs for an extremely affordable price. However, I am out of state which makes affordability an issue. The sports scene and party scenes are great and there is always stuff to be doing around campus!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love this school and have learned a lot about the world and myself, in and outside of the classroom. I am surrounded by people who care about their grades, but are also willing to go out and enjoy life together. The food and the dorms are not as nice, but it's a small price to pay for this great school.

It's a research university and you can tell what the schools priorities are. The housing may not be the best, but it's the people you live with that really matter. Great hall mates could make an a awful halls not so bad. And there's' always a lot to do both on and off campus

What is your overall opinion of this school?

While it hasn't been long since I first started attending UMD, I found the highlight of my experience to be from the people I met. The community is comprised of various welcoming organizations and individuals who are willing to help out at any step of the way. The living conditions may not be the most uplifting, but the academics are worthy of praise. Like any school, it has its strengths and faults; however, those imperfections add to its character and allow students to bond over their impressions together.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Maryland - College Park is a great school for the in-state tuition price. I do not think I would pay for out of state tuition but college prices in the U.S. are all excessive. I guess that is why I am doing this review. This is a great atmosphere and would recommend, any Maryland residents interested in Engineering, to go to this school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The university of Maryland may be a big institution, and although it is you can always find a place in which you can fit in, which is always great. There is always a club you can join to make that big campus just a little smaller. Education wise, they do a pretty good job at encouraging you to do your best, although you also need to put forth some effort in order to receive help. Overall, I think that UMD is an amazing campus to be obtaining my education at.
