Classes can be challenging, but there are many resources on campus that can help you get help when u need it. In addition, Professors are always open to help, as long as you reach out.
Jean-Thomas from Hyattsville, MD
UMD courses are challenging and rigorous in every department. If you ever need help, our professors and teacher's assistants are always willing to help during their office hours.
Oleksiy from Gaithersburg, MD
UMD is not one of the top public colleges in the nation for no reason. Some courses are of course harder than others, but they all require effort. So if you're looking to fly by in college, UMD is probably not the right place for you. In several majors, such as mine (Journalism), the faculty are award-winning scholars in their area of expertise. This means that they aren't going to give good marks to students who won't put in the effort that they expect. But what's great about these courses at UMD is that the professors and TA's are almost always there to help you. I have been to office hours for my TA's numerous times for questions, for them to look over my papers, and even just advice. UMD is unlike high school where many of the teachers simply want you to pass. The professors here truly want you to succeed. As long as you show them respect and effort in their classes, the teachers will make sure you are becoming the best student you can be. They don't want to see anyone fail and by contributing to the course and to your own learning as much as you can, you'll learn so much more than you may have expected.
