University of Maryland - College Park Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (52)
I appreciated the flexibility and corporations of the teaching personnel. As a Navy veteran who recently transitioned back into civilian life understanding that our work weeks were never only 40 hrs made completing homework and tasks much more manageable.
The economic degree path, although not my first choice was indeed an excellent choice. I had the opportunity to broaden my knowledge in Urban economics, sharpen my analytical skills, ability to look dissect a problem, acknowledging different viewpoints, laws, previous and current research, and give possible solutions to current problem/affairs.
I attended University of Maryland in various locations in Germany. The Instructors were flexible with the curriculum given we were in a war status. Classes were well attended and the assignments kept up with real world situations in business, economics, psychology, etc. I was able to apply my military experiences to papers and projects and for that I am grateful
I was a transfer student from Montgomery community college as Electrical Engineering student. The first day I started at UMD, I was extremely overwhelmed with the size of the campus, the parking, and the number of people. It seems so large at first, but then it gets much smaller. Most of my classes took place in one building so I got the hang of it pretty quickly. The teachers are excellent. Business and Engineering programs are nationally ranked. I am still in touch with few of my professors. I am going to start my graduate class this fall. I would recommend it to someone looking for a diverse community, rigorous academics, and a good degree. I got a job less than a month after I graduated and have been employed since.
University of Maryland provided endless opportunities. From meeting other students from different backgrounds to offering a huge variety of majors/minors/clubs/greek life/study abroad programs to take part in. Looking back, I feel like I could've taken better advantage of these opportunities, so I urge anyone looking to attend a school that puts a copious adventures are your fingertips, University of Maryland is the place to go. I took part in Residential Life as a Community Assistant, worked Security with Student Entertainment Events, played intramural soccer, and studied abroad in San Sebastian, Spain, just to go you an idea of what type of experiences I was able to have -- and yet I still wish I did more!
I was a transfer student from a small community college. The first day I started at UMD, I was extremely overwhelmed with the size of the campus, the parking, and the number of people. It seems so large at first, but then it gets much smaller. Most of my classes took place in one building so I got the hang of it pretty quickly. The teachers are excellent. I am still in touch with one of my professors. She wrote me a letter of recommendation for graduate school. It's a really good school, I would recommend it to someone looking for a diverse community, close to two cities (Baltimore and Washington, D.C.), rigorous academics, and a good degree. I got a job less than a month after I graduated and have been employed since.
I attended UMD as a nontraditional student - returning to school as an adult, veteran, transfer, commuter student. What I loved the most about UMD is that there no matter what walk of life you come from, there is some form of support available here to help you. In the same vein, no matter what your interests are, because this is such a large school, there are undoubtedly others who share your interests. Diversity of one of Maryland's greatest strengths!
University of Maryland provided me with everything I needed after graduation. UMD has such a huge network outside of campus. My first job interview was with a UMD grad, and I truly believe that connection was a major factor in me getting the job. UMD had numerous career fairs and opportunities to get in the face of numerous companies and sell myself. They provided help in finding jobs and internships while in school as well. The social life was beyond amazing, I always say it was the best 4 years of my life!
Great University. For anyone considering attending a school in the DC area, I feel this is the one to be. Has a traditional campus setting and is one of the largest research institutions in the country. Business and Engineering programs are nationally ranked. If you want the full University experience, this is the place to be!
I loved the University of Maryland, it was a great place to grow and mature. There are many opportunities for students who want to get involved. I recommend doing all that you can during your undergrad and making the most of the experience. The campus is beautiful and being close to DC is a huge plus! There are internships and job opportunities galore.
