McDaniel College is a wonderful community of people always willing to lift each other up. I have enjoyed all of the professors and students I have interacted with. I also love the small class sizes and the many course options offered.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Be aware that there is only one dining hall as well as a couple other food options like the convenience store and the Pub.

I love my professor and our small class sizes my biggest class was my anatomy lecture which had 40 people in it. Professors are also willing to help you and there are so many ways to get involved on campus. Even if you don't want to get involved there are still lots of things to do on campus there are events going on most nights of the week just to build community and get students to have fun and relax.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

You should be aware that since class sizes are small you have to be on top of things to get into the classes you want to otherwise you run the risk of not getting into the class you need.

Mcdaniel college is a small college with beautiful nature (trees are everywhere!). I like the professors here - they are very nice and everyone is very friendly. You can ask any person for help and they will help. The community here is good.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The food in the dining hall is usually not good. The buildings are relatively old and a little dirty. Some residence halls (especially the ones for freshmen) don’t have ac, so it is very hot during summer/spring/beginning of the fall. I don’t like the location - the suburbs. The price is unfair - it is too high.
