University of Maryland - College Park Graduate Reviews

21 reviews
During my undergraduate period, this university gave me the opportunity to balance priorities related and unrelated to my academics. Because of that opportunity, I was able to build myself through employment, volunteer, and athletic, and organizational efforts. I am able to balance all of my current priorities at this present time because of my undergraduate journey at this university. Besides focusing on more long-term infrastructure goals that will benefit the campus personnel rather than the public image, I have no concerns about how the university should change.

My specific program has professors who aren't invested in teaching. It's all on your own. Literally. The campus is pretty enough. College Park is relatively boring, but DC is nearby. The student life aspect is definitely focused on undergraduate students, but there are plenty of activities on campus still.
I have just started my graduate studies at UMD and I am very pleased so far with my program; Masters of Music in Performance. The staff are helpful and the faculty are knowledgable, skilled teachers and renown performers. The campus body of students is very active; there is an unlimited number of things to do and organizations to get involved with. The campus itself is sprawling and beautiful, watching the leaves turn colors in autumn is a wonderful sight. I am very pleased with my decision to attend here for my graduate degree.
