What Students Are Saying

3.80 Average Rating
UMD, College Park is a school full of opportunities and great education. It has a campus feel, but is large enough to feel like it's own town and easy access to Washington, D.C. and other commercial areas, providing plenty of opportunities for entertainment and enrichment. Even though the campus is huge and there is an enormous amount of students, individual colleges and departments help break UMD down into smaller communities.
Jennifer from Western Maryland
It is a good institution that has courteous staff. Its academic courses are challenging. There are many clubs to join and if their are any missing, it can be easily created.
