"Great program at UMD. I found that it was extremely rewarding and challenging. The Department of Biology and Chemistry were amazing. There were tutors constantly available and organized study sessions that were very helpful. I am extremely happy with my education from University of Maryland"

Degree: Mathematics
Graduation Year: 2015
"The University of Maryland experience is all about what you make of it. Certain majors have more useful opportunities which can help with networking from an early place in school, whereas others are more lacking. The career center staff were not a helpful resource despite their efforts in offering practice interviews and resume assistance, but the career center website is a great tool to look for jobs. Most of the academic programs are good to excellent, but of course this depends on your major. The campus is beautiful, and will probably look completely different in a few years due to all of the rapid construction taking place in and around the school. Safety was never an issue for myself, but there have been thefts and assaults, as with any college town -- just be vigilant and don't make yourself a target. All in all, I'd recommend the university."

Ricardo Morales - 3/20/2017
Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2017
"The Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering department has been one of the most fulfilling experiences I have had. When I first began my classes freshman year, I was worried because I felt that the majority of my classes were math, physics, and chemistry requirements as opposed to just chemical engineering classes. However, progressively, a larger and larger percentage of my classes were focused on chemical engineering and what used to be lecture halls of hundreds of random Clark school students turned into smaller classes of all Chem E's. The further I got, the more I got to know my professors and the more they tried to teach me about working in the real world. I enjoyed it so much, I decided to stay for graduate school."

Autumn Crews - 3/10/2017
Degree: Journalism
Graduation Year: 2008
"University of Maryland provides a great education with a beautiful campus that is centrally located. They were about finding your niche, which was easy to do. It seemed like there was something for everyone, and people felt free to be who they were. The classes were engaging, and even in large lectures the professors took the time to get to know me because I consistently sat in the front. The food was average, but there was always a wide variety. My college experience was great at the University of Maryland. I would recommend it to anybody considering it because it is so huge with so much to offer that anyone can fit it and excel."

Degree: Law & Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2016
"I loved my classes and my teachers but wasn't thrilled with the social environment, however many people say they love it. If you are a Maryland resident UMD is a great school and you should definitely go there. If you are out of state, its not worth the tuition but if you get a good scholarship than I would suggest you also attend."

"The University of Maryland, College Park is a hub of every sort of learning with which a student could hope to engage. The campus has endless opportunity for innovation and intersection in study, as well as established programs whose names draw recognition and respect in the professional world.

Degree: Finance
Graduation Year: 2017
"This is a wonderful school located just 20 minutes from the heart of Washington DC. Regardless of your major, there are plenty of resources to take advantage of to help you pursue your goals. This includes research facilities, professors, peers, and accessible databases. The student diversity on campus is one of my favorite characteristics about the school, which allows you to interact with and learn from students of all backgrounds. This includes different ethnicities, interests, and pursuits. I never thought I'd find a school that has the right balance of really everything, but Maryland was able to provide that exceptionally. I recommend this school to everyone and anyone."
