These schools are similar to University of Maryland-College Park in key aspects like size, setting, and academics.
100% of students
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.
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
I like the fact that if we need help with something, we can find a tutor on campus.
I love all aspects of this college except for the weather.
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.
There is nothing to dislike about UMCP that does not exist at other schools as well.
It is easy to make friends people are nice and the teachers are easy to talk to
The dining hall isn't that great and it closes early but there are lots of options so you can still find something you like
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.
Some of the dorms are less than ideal because some of the dorm buildings are remnants of when the college was first built.
