McDaniel College Reviews
Review McDaniel College
I had a very positive experience at McDaniel College. I feel that the education I received was extensive enough to allow me to succeed in a variety of fields, even those outside of my major. The majority of professors I had were very knowledgeable, helpful, and interested in their students' individual needs. Classes were always small enough that you could get individual attention from instructors if needed. One thing I would have loved to see was a more diverse student body and more up-to-date housing for resident students.
Though it isn't the best, attending McDaniel College has been one of the best experiences of my life so far. My time here has allowed me to make valuable connections with my peers and many of the faculty and staff members that work at the school. Securing a job at the school's Information Technology department has landed me several opportunities throughout my two academic school years and one summer of full-time work. Furthermore, I have gained valuable experience that may soon guarantee me a job right out of college by working either at the school or a private company. My choice to attend McDaniel has given me many gifts including the motivation to move forward in life and achieve personal goals.
The quality of the residence halls are overall average, and I have seen worse. However, the price for living in them is a bit too high. There is very little consistency among the residence halls, and the quality is different for each one. The campus-owned houses along the streets are habitable, but are certainly poor in quality. They cost too much for how much they are actually worth, and you pretty much pay the high price for the freedom of having a kitchen (to dodge the expensive meal plan) and having a bathroom you only have to share with at most eight people. There has actually been talk of having the houses torn down for years now, but they still rent them out. They are also sometimes infested with either insects, bed bugs or mice.
