University of Maryland Eastern Shore Reviews

I am thankful for the opportunities I have been given and the memories that I have made at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore. During my first year, I was challenged academically, made great friends, and was even able to participate in a study abroad trip to the Dominican Republic.

In terms of campus life and the administration, there are several changes that need to be made. One of the biggest issues on our campus is the food. It is below par and disappointing a majority of the time. School spirit also lacks severely, and the inability to do a lot both on campus and in the surrounding area also tends to drive people away from the University.

With all that said, I am genuinely enjoying myself. My friends have made my experience so special, and I am so happy that I decided to attend this University. I hope that necessary changes will be made during my next three years to improve the school to where it needs to be.

This is a beautiful campus with many amenities. Whether you are looking for a club to join or you need tutoring help after class, UMES has the resources available to help any student learn and understand the material given. Above all, it is one of the cheapest colleges to attend.

Transfer students should take precaution, the Office of the Registrar are difficult to work with. It is advised that any transfer student should frequently check the status of his or her transferred credits and keep a paperwork folder from day one.
My experience at UMES could have been better. There are many issues with housing. There are also issues with the food. Also the location in Princess Anne, MD is pretty boring. However academically I think UMES is doing a pretty good job. I have learn so much since enrolling at UMES!
