    Located only a few miles outside of Washington D.C., and home to one of the best academic programs in the world, UMD has something for everyone. Many people don't think of Maryland as a prestigious university, however nothing could be further from the truth. You will love every minute you spend on campus and will make your friends feel bad for looking down on such a great school.
