    The campus is very large and confusing for new students to walk, especially for those with handicaps. The buildings are high tech and very nice. Maryland would be good place to go for an education for many people.

    The University of Maryland is a massive, it feels like a small city. The campus is beautiful but not very personable, mainly because of its size. That being said, I feel at home on campus and there are tons of awesome things to do.

    University of Maryland College Park is a great new up and coming research institution. The campus is beautiful, we are actually competing well in the big ten, and I love being able to take the metro into D.C. practically whenever I want. There are so many different groups, classes, interests, and sports that there is always something to do.
