    It is a fairly large school so at times it feels as though its hard to make friends. Try getting involved in an activity that will help make the big school feel small. Also, freshmen should try living in Denton, Hagerstown, Easton, Ellicott, and Elkton. This is where most freshmen will stay and you're floor will probably be all freshmen, which will make it easier to make friends.

    To be a Terp, you have to think like one even when you're in high school. This means that you have to work hard and show what you can do with what you have learned. UMD really puts an emphasis on how you apply your knowledge and skills rather than simply test scores and GPA, so it's very important that you have solid extracurriculars and a great college essay. As far as extracurriculars, however, UMD would rather see you excel in a few than be average and put in little effort into many. Additionally, showing an interest in the school is important to admissions as well. UMD holds several events for prospective students, such as Maryland Marquee day, that are a fun way to see if the university is a good fit for you. Visiting your prospective schools is very important in making your decision, and UMD makes it fun to do so.

    Get ready to teach yourself. There are many great resources at UMD but with large class sizes, you are on your own when it comes to learning the material.

    It's a decently sized school, so only go here if you want to go to a big school. For the most part, though, that's not an issue. If you wind up in either Ellicott, Hagerstown, or Cumberland for your housing, make sure you bring fans because those dorms do not have AC.

    Prospective students should definitely visit the campus at least once to get the feel of college life, and see if they could envision themselves going here.
