While the classes are extremely informational, and the professors and T.A.s are all very knowledgeable on their subjects, the real learning goes on outside of the classroom. Their are countless non-credit lectures, shows to attend, research teams to be a part of, professors to work with one-on-one, and relationships to be made which will help you mature into a worldly human being.

    While I do not attend UMD, my brother is a rising senior there, and I have visited multiple times. The feel of the campus is great - it always seems like there is something fun going on. Although the school is quite large, to quote my tour guide, You can make a big school feel small, but you can't make a small school feel big.

    UMD is a great school from what I've researched and seen so far. The programs are great and the campus is beautiful. The only thing too watch out for is although the tuition is low especially for in stat students the financial aid awarded per student is extremely low.

    UMD is definitely earned its title as a Public Ivy. The university has so much to offer, in all things social and academic - it's hard to turn such a great school down. You'll definitely thrive here.

    The University of Maryland is a beautiful big campus with so much diversity that you meet people from all walks of like. Don't let Maryland's big size intimidate you, it provides clubs and organizations to involve yourself with. Maryland offers tons of opportunities for students to take an assortment of different classes that are not necessarily required for your major-- there's even a one credit swimming class!
