University of Maryland - College Park Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (58)
UMD has a small school feel in a big city. With the location so close to Washington D.C. you have endless possibilities. One thing everyone asks themselves as they go to school is 'Can I find a job afterwards'. With its proximity to D.C. there is a ton of entry level jobs for anyone. As far as the school and the education I feel that the school give their students all the tool you need to succeeded. One negative thing I will say is sometimes you feel like you're at a cattle farm of students. With class sizes 350+ it is hard to get that one on one time with professors.
I went to the University of Maryland almost thirty years ago so it has changed quite a bit. But I got a great education and have been thrilled to see how much effort has gone into upgrading the already strong Journalism program. The real-world, work experience opportunities are exceptional. I have a would hire a Maryland graduate without hesitation.
Very large and somewhat overwhelming, but has a lot of resources available to students
I love Maryland. Great campus, lots of people, perfect location. Wide array of majors, ideal for someone that isn't sure where life will lead.
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.
