What Students Are Saying

3.30 Average Rating
As a Freshman, I tested out of the required English course, so I took a 3000-level British Literature course in my first semester. I barely stayed afloat, but the professor and the material covered just absolutely blew my mind. I love the English department here and can't wait for three more years in the English building!

The classes do ask for you to put effort into them, but not too much for you to handle, and the teachers are available to help you understand the material after class or during their office hours.
Ryan from LA Plata, MD
The academics are really good. The professors are usually always over qualified for their positions and can teach several courses. The work will be challenging but the professors are there to help.

McDaniel challenges you and prepares you for your future life after college. Classes are taken seriously and you actually need to show up if you want to pass. The classes are not ridiculously hard, but you definitely need to put in the effort, do the work, and study in order to do well.
Viktoria from Rowland, PA
The intensity of your classes really does depend upon what your major is. We're a liberal arts college generally, but some of the biology classes (undergrad) are taught on a grad-school level.
Amanda from Parkville, MD
The academics here are challenging, but the professors want you to do your best. They are not out there to see you fail. They care about your academic success and will help you get on track and stay on track. The academics here are challenging and motivating for students who are eager to push their limits.
