WHAT I LIKED

Really pretty campus, really cool teachers, a lot of freedom regarding schedule building and class selection, a large variety of classes, a lot of different people.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The bigness can be unsettling. If you're not from Maryland, or even a specific part of Maryland, it can be hard to make friends. Generally pretty expensive

WHAT I LIKED

Because of the size of the school, there is a multitude of clubs you can join and people you can meet. From my experience in a history major, many of the professors are kind and teach with enthusiasm and vigor. You will find that there are endless opportunities to gain connections and internships through the college you belong to, or just by looking at a bulletin board.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

There is nothing to dislike about UMCP that does not exist at other schools as well.

5.0

WHAT I LIKED

The size of the campus allows for a flourishing community of every identity or activity you could think to partake in. They also serve cultural foods in the dining halls, which is an added bonus.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Some of the dorms are less than ideal because some of the dorm buildings are remnants of when the college was first built.
