University of Maryland Eastern Shore Top Questions

What kind of person should not attend this school?


You will meet many people with different opinions about this school. Some will say the like the school, and that they have a great time, while others will say that they hate the school, like absolutely hate it. As for me, I have had the best memories of my life so far at this school, with the amazing people I met. Having a great experience at this school relies solely on the type of person you are. If you aren't someone who likes to go out and socialize, making new friends, you WILL NOT have fun. You can't expect to stay locked up in your room and have fun. So if you are anti social, it will not work. You need to make the best of what you got, and staying cooked up in a room will not suffice.


Someone who likes to party a lot shouldnt attend this school.


Someone who isn't focused. Its very easy to fall behind


Anyone can and should attend this school. They have something for everyone.


A student who enjoys a small area and classroom size. University of Maryland Eastern Shore has a country southern field


If a person does not want to gain knowledge and a social network, they should not attend University of Maryland-Eastern Shore, any college at that. I feel that University of Maryland-Eastern Shore was made for all kinds of students: yung, old, shy, and outgoing. Just like all of the other colleges and universities. I believe that anybody who attends an institute will grow academically and socially from their experience there.


A person who does not have an open mind. HBCU's (historically Black college and universities) are often ignored and is considered second rate when compared to traditional schools. But, really HBCUs are diverse institutions of higher learning that offer extracurricular and academic programs and are exceeding those offered at "traditional" campuses. These colleges especially UMES offer high quality education at affordable prices at undergraduate, graduate and professional levels and has better overall value than traditional schools that are similarly ranked. UMES helps students not only establish life long connections, but to also enchance the sense of cultural identity.


anyone is welcome to the school. anyone who has an high school degree


Anyone can come come to this school


UMES is a very "do-it-yourself" type of school. While the advisors are there to give advice, you must take what they tell you and make the ultimate decisions yourself. The curriculum is based on lecture, supported by literature so those without motivation will easily fall behind. Deadlines are deadlines and procrastination is not an option. Students with poor self-motivation and time management should re-think their choices before enrolling and attending.


If you are a person who is lazy, not willing to learn everyday, or thinks twice on your decision to go to college, then you should not attend this school. In my opinion, this goes for any university because you have to be motivated in order to work hard. If you are not very social, you should not attend this school because it is like a village of people. You see the same faces everyday and the more people you know, the better because they will help you whenever you need it. This school isn't all about fun.


I think a person with an open mind approach to life should visit this school


Any student that is uncomfortable being separated from the materialistic things of this world that hender us from dealing with and acknowledging our goals.


Someone who is not used to living in a very small town should not attend this school. This is an HBCU in the poorest county in the state of MD. The campus is beautiful and very small. If a student comes from a big city it might be hard for them to adjust to such a humble area.


You shouldn't attend if you like big cities.


A weak, low self esteemed person. Know what you want and how to get it before entering college. A smooth transition is always the best.


i think anyone who have a high school GED could attend to this school.


low self esteem


A goal oriented , well rounded, and polished person is the type that should attend this school. THey will grow not only acadmically but as a person.


Any one who enjoys bands, football, fraternities, and sororities. UMES does not have a football team, soccer team, swim team or a lacross team. The activities are limited and if you are far away from home you will really be bored on the weekends.
