What Students Are Saying

3.39 Average Rating
Just make sure that you are on top of your work and also check your Bulldog account.
Jasmine from Clinton, MD
Get a tutor early in the semester.
Try to find something to get involved in.
You determine how your year will be.
Do not take early morning classes, they will catch up with you.
Get to know fellow students and your professors.
Tia from Converse, TX
Getting in is really easy. If your grades aren't the greatest the essay and the interview can really make up for that. Once you do get in make sure you study your Algebra because you have to take a placement test.
N.T. from Lanham, MD
Always file your FAFSA really early (around December or January) for the following academic year. You will be happy you did so. For those wanting to live on campus, make sure to apply for housing early on as well.
Julius from Landover, MD
It is a small campus so be careful as to what yu say or do and whom you say it to or do it with.
maryann from Silver Spring, MD
Don't be afraid to step out of your comfort zone and explore all your opportunities offered.
Breanna from Baltimore, MD
I recommend this school to anyone who wishes to attend a small school, loves to have fun, and is ready to be successful.
Mary - Washington, DC
Get active.
