At the University of Maryland, you learn so much more than just facts and truths from textbooks and lectures. 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.

    I have been getting mixed reviews of this school. I've looked this school up many times, and there are reviews stating that the student service is not up to par as it should be. However, some friends of mine that attend the school say otherwise. Anyone want to give me a proper review of this school? I would like an unbiased and honest review please. Thank you in advance!

    UMD is a great state school however it is also incredibly challenging. If you plan to attend one of their STEM programs be aware there is an extensive weed out program at this school. The people are great and the environment is great as well however there is a strong competitive air at the school.

    The University of Maryland is a school full of possibilities. They show diversity in multiple ways, from the diversity in the people on campus, to the variety of majors, and even to the different food options provided in the dining halls! If you're looking for a school that has a lot to offer (and that looks great on any resume), then UMD is definitely for you!

    UMD is a rigorous university where teachers expect the best work possible. You are challenged everyday in classes and are expected to want to learn. Teachers and advisors are very friendly and are always available to help you in anything.
