Sydney Sawyer - 8/9/2016
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2013
"My overall experience at the University of Maryland was fantastic. The professors are well versed in their craft and I made memories to last a lifetime. I truly felt like I was a part of something special which attending UMD. I liked my experience so much that I decided to return in order to obtain my MBA. My second time around, I am a military spouse and have found UMD to be extremely accommodating towards my military lifestyle. I was able to defer my enrollment in preparation for my husband returning from deployment, which was extremely important to my family life."

"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."

"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."
