A very supportive environment for students who are focused on STEM education. Most departments are decent sized without being too overwhelming and it is a good environment for graduate students to stand out and make a mark in their field. Only downside is that the university lacks name recognition outside of Maryland.
The professors in the SAHAP department provided great guidance and support while challenging you to be YOUR best.
The facility had a great recreation center and the library had a presentation room to practice for thesis defenses and other presentation needs.
