    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.

    UMD has a variety of opportunities for everyone and even though it is a large campus it feels like a small community. Getting around can be difficult but the UM shuttles help out if you plan to go off campus.
