McDaniel presents its students with a WIDE array of classes on so many topics. I was able to take a class about the relationship between madness and creativity. There's classes on South Park's take on social commentary, in-depth studies into theatre or science. If you can dream of the class, it will probably be offered at McDaniel at some point. Also, the professors are open and willing to help any student who requests it. They love teaching their classes and it really does show.

    A private, virtually unknown, liberal arts school in northern MD. The school makes many promises; whether they fulfill them depends on what you want to get out of your education. Attend if you want D1 swimming, low-cost tuition for a broad range of subjects, or a solid Deaf Studies/American Sign Language program.

    The campus is absolutely beautiful. The teachers are always there to help when possible. The campus atmosphere is calm, relaxed, and you can get to know everyone on campus without too much difficulty if you so choose.

    Although it is far from big cities, McDaniel is very diverse. Diversity means more learning and sharing of knowledge and culture. It is just upon one's openness to learn and meet other people of other background.

    McDaniel is a college with a beautiful campus and some vibrant students. Because of its size, the teachers all get to know their students and truly care about them. The campus is also small enough to get around quickly, from end to end.
