University of Maryland - College Park Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (54)
Maryland seems like a giant campus and can look overwhelming, but once you're there you get used to it. There are so many different kinds of people and clubs and its easy to find something you love to do and meet people.
Pretty good school. Lots going on on campus, but the town it is in is pathetic as a college town. So it's lucky it's so close to DC, which is a great town for students.
Loved Maryland. Big campus, lots of opportunity, lots of fun.
It was great! As soon as you follow your interests, join a group/organization, and surround yourself with people you enjoy and respect you, everything works out :)
Good school with reputed faculty members, nice place to live and beautiful scenery
I absolutely loved it. College was the best 4 years of my life and it didn't disappoint. Made lifelong friends and would definitely recommend.
A great school with a lot of diversity. Willing and able to work with each student to assist in the needs of a variety of students.
I transferred from a small (~2,000 student) school to UMD my junior year. While I LOVED the larger student body, the larger class selection, and the larger activities selection, it was really hard to be a transfer student halfway through college. If you don't like where you are at after two semesters, transfer right away. College goes by so fast that any time spent unhappy is truly wasted.
Love this school. They've given so much back to me and made my undergraduate career so much easier. The Smith business school is stellar - students get a strong background in all aspects of business. I didn't particularly like the degree I got, but I do know that the instruction I received was top-notch and that I will be able to apply everything I learned to whatever career I find in the future.
Although initially attending the university for financial reasons, the extracurriculars have truly made my time here an unforgettable experience--it really is what you make of it.
