I am very please to be apart of this University, If i could go back in time in High School and pick the college that i would like to attend UMES would be my first pick.
James from Princess Anne, MD
University Of Maryland Eastern Shore is a very diverse HBCU with so much to offer. The professor at the university are very hands on and always make them self available outside of the classroom and via personal email. The curriculum is very flexible and and straight foward; so its very hard to fall behind .
