Driving into University of Maryland Eastern Shore campus for move in day was a bittersweet moment. As I became more open minded about the campus and what it has to offer me, I became more of a member of the school. UMES is an overall well rounded school and is all of what you make it while your are there. I plan on making the best out of my experience there. HAWK PRIDE...CATCH IT!
Review Your College
At my school, you are not immersed in this large population of the hardworking student. Here you find relaxed, not too concerned individuals. Professors are a hit or a miss. I've had some professors who are super concerned about helping, then you have the ones in the chemistry department who slam their doors as soon as they hear students approaching. The system operates very slow, but they try, and that's what matters. I love the school because when you connect to someone faculty or staff, they truly guide you. That personal connection makes up for anything else. I cannot comment on campus life since I do not live there, but I have stayed at a friend's room, and man, those things are tiny. My favorite experiences include anything with the Biology or Food Science departments. The staff really makes you feel welcome and really try for you. Some of the Math department is that way as well. As a student with disabilities, ADHD and Dyslexia, the disability coordinator really makes student feel equally valued as well. TAs are underutilized, but that stems from the lack of organization in the University its self.
My overall experience at this college was okay. I liked how beautiful and quiet the campus is. I would say I had only 3 good teachers out of the 6 that I had. I liked how the school had activities planned for students but what made the activities so uninteresting was the fact that they were low bugeted . The dorms were okay, I lived in UT ( University Terrace, which is the best girls dorm). The cafeteria food was nasty most of the time and it would hurt students stomachs. If you choose to go here you will make great friends.
